The company currently conducts its affairs so that securities issued by Aberdeen Asian Income Fund Limited can be recommended by IFAs to ordinary retail investors in accordance with the FCA’s rules in relation to non-mainstream pooled investment products (NMPIs) and intends to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
The Company’s securities are excluded from the FCA’s restrictions which apply to non-mainstream investment products because the company would qualify as an investment trust if the company were based in the UK.
The Alternative Investment Fund Manager Directive (“AIFMD”) requires Aberdeen Private Wealth Management Limited, as a non-European Union manager of Aberdeen Asian Income Fund Limited, a Jersey-based fund, to make available to investors certain information prior to such investors’ investment in the Company.
The AIFMD is intended to offer increased protection to investors in investments products that do not fall under the existing European Union regime for regulation of certain investment products known as “UCITS”.
The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may get back less than the amount invested. The tax benefits relating to ISA investments may not be maintained. Please refer to the Key Facts documents contained in the ISA/Share Plan Brochure & Application form for general and specific investment risks attaching to the individual trusts.Read the detailed Risk Warning
