AIM, the London Stock Exchange’s international market for smaller growing companies, is home to nearly 900 companies.
There are now hundreds of AIM companies with robust business models and a history of profitability, cash generation and attractive dividends. Many of these excellent businesses have seen their shares soar over the past few years, far outperforming larger but lower growth companies on the main UK stock market.
Building a balanced, well diversified portfolio is key to tax planning success
Investment in AIM companies for IHT planning purposes is all about constructing a well-balanced diversified portfolio of qualifying AIM shares, not just about individual stock selection. AIM portfolios managed by Fundamental Asset Management have delivered outstanding returns since inception in 2004.
AIM Shares include famous and well-managed companies
Household names like ASOS and boohoo, the online shopping retailers, Nichols, owner of the Vimto brand and Hotel Chocolat, the premium chocolate maker and retailer, are all quoted on AIM.
Scores of other less well know, but well-managed firms offer year-on-year capital growth. CVS Group, the veterinary services provider, RWS Group, the specialist patent translator and James Halstead, the commercial flooring company have been stalwarts of our AIM portfolios for many years offering fantastic returns.
For every AIM company that has disappeared from sight there have been 10 that have more than doubled or trebled in size.
