Unsolicited Calls to Shareholders

January 2019: It has been recently brought to our attention that members of the public have been approached by scammers offering to buy their shares in Alliance Trust PLC. We recommend that if you receive an unsolicited call from an investment firm that you do not know you should ask for confirmation that it is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). For further details of how you can make sure you are dealing with an authorised firm please refer to the FCA website.

If you receive any similar unsolicited calls, please treat with extreme caution. The safest thing to do is hang up.
