Taking AIM

The AIM Awards was held at Billingsgate market – undoubtedly an evening not to be missed with the main movers and shakers from an exchange that has kept us all well dressed and well fed for many years.

Jo and I put together a table that kept clients, Brulines, zamano and RCG very happy while speaking with experts from analyst and corporate finance communities. Jo went over and above the call of duty by donning black tie and greeting the guests as they arrived.

Abchurch had three short listed potential winners and, although none made the final cut, they were among strong company:

Best Performing Share
Futuragene – up 691%!

Best Communication Award
May Gurney Integrated Services plc

Best Use of AIM
Vertu Motors plc

Best Technology
Immupharma plc

AIM Transaction of the Year
ToLuna plc

Achievement in Sustainability
Modern Water plc

Best Research Award
Edison Investment Research

International Company of the Year
Asian Citrus Holdings Ltd

Best Newcomer Awards
Max Property Group

Entrepreneur of the Year
Chris Havemann, ResearchNow

Company of the Year

The Winner of a Lifetime Achievement Award went to Peter Ashworth, head of Research at Charles Stanley.
Very thoughtful thank you’s flooded the Abchurch inboxes the next day. All in all, the AIM Awards in their Old Billingsgate venue reflects the market of the past – the difference is we now trade equity not fish.
