Take AIM at new opportunities

The government has confirmed that the ISA rules will be changed to permit the inclusion of stocks listed on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) from the autumn. The smaller companies listed on AIM are usually seen as riskier than those listed on the bigger London Stock Exchange, but they include some spectacular successes like the online retailer ASOS, which has almost quintupled investors’ money over just three years, as well as steady growers like Majestic Wines.
