2010: A return to optimism on AIM

After a year in the doldrums, confidence is set to return to AIM in 2010, so says “AIM in Review 2010”, an annual survey put together by Growth Company Investor magazine. Several Abchaps attended the survey’s launch event, and came back feeling even more confident about this year.

The report interviewed CEOs, private investors, fund managers, and brokers and nomads. It has uncovered a tremendous amount of optimism, and notes that AIM is attractive for its ability to raise funds for SMEs and entrepreneurs.

Amongst the CEOs surveyed, 85% believe AIM will make gains during 2010, and 82% trust that they will be able to raise funds if they need to. Amongst retail investors survey, 67% expect further gains for AIM this year, and 76% believe AIM companies offer good value.

At Abchurch we have strong faith in AIM and London’s quoted market. Since our inception in 2004, we have advised on 67 successful IPOs. Indeed, in recent months we have started to see an increase in activity and potential deal flow – which is all around good news for the City.
