AIM : www.checklistmag.com
Alternative investment market is popular at London Stock Exchange. It is the stock market’s global market for smaller, growing companies. The membership rules are less tedious than for the FTSE 100.

Tax breaks exist to encourage investment in Aim stocks. Investments like these are a bit riskier but can yield greater returns.

Alternative Investment Market started around 1995 with a few companies but now more companies have joined.
