The abrdn plc Dividend Re-investment Plan (“the DRIP”)

How does the DRIP work?
If you choose to join the DRIP, you will receive more abrdn plc shares rather than a cash payment.

Whole shares are purchased and any residual money is rolled over and added to the next cash dividend. However, if the amount available to re-invest, after the deduction of costs, is not enough to purchase one whole share, then no costs will be charged to you and the whole of your dividend will be carried forward to the next cash dividend payment.

When you buy shares through the DRIP, you will receive a statement confirming the purchase details as well as your dividend confirmation.

How do I join?

You can join the DRIP by logging into your abrdn Share Portal Account. Then visit the ‘My Investments’ section, click on ‘View’ and ‘Dividend Election’ to make your choice.

If you haven’t already registered, it’s simple to do so. After registering, and when you have received your activation code through the post, just log-in and follow the directions above.

You can also download an application form, or you can request a form to be sent to you by calling the Shareholder Helpline.
