The Alternative Investment Market (AIM) has reached a critical juncture, with the number of companies and their total market capitalisation both falling sharply since the pre-crisis peak.
In our fragile and uncertain economic climate, the success of this market for entrepreneurial companies will be hugely important in creating jobs and stimulating growth in the UK.
AIM has faced a lot of competition from rival markets in the past 15 years, and it’s a clear testament to its resilience and value that it has survived.
But as it celebrates its 15th birthday, can AIM continue to be a natural home for innovative and ambitious companies? If so, how can the different players contribute to its future success?
In Securing AIM’s Future, we examine how valid some perceptions of AIM are. We also gauge its ability to stay relevant in a risk-averse investment environment and continue to attract funds.
