About Us

Fundamental Asset Management Limited is an independentowner managed, AIM specialist focussing on tax efficient investing and growth. We have successfully provided AIM for Inheritance Tax planning and General Portfolio Management to private investors, trusts and institutions since 2004.

We have an unrivalled knowledge of AIM, the London Stock Exchange’s market for small and medium size growth companies. AIM has developed into the world’s most successful and established market for dynamic high-growth companies. Some AIM stocks qualify for Business Property Relief and benefit from 100% Inheritance Tax relief when held for two years and until death.

Our mission is to offer UK investors the opportunity to invest into diversified portfolios of high growth UK smaller companies, which have been thoroughly researched and analysed. Our methodology has not changed since we started and several companies we invested in at our launch still remain in our portfolios today.

We undertake our own in-depth research, seeking out the best investment opportunities across UK and international stock markets. We believe in investing in high quality, cash generative, profitable, growth companies, preferably where the management of these companies’ interests are aligned to those of our clients through them holding substantial equity stakes.

Our experience and expertise, gained through several stock market cycles, along with our outstanding customer service, makes Fundamental Asset Management one of the most successful AIM managers for tax efficient investing in the UK.
