FAQs


AIM is the world’s most successful growth market and the only truly global market for smaller growing companies. AIM has helped more than 3,600 companies raise more than £98bn of development capital over its 21 year history. AIM is more than an IPO market, providing companies with high quality, long-term institutional liquidity and the ability to raise capital to fund future growth. Approximately 60 per cent of all the money ever raised on AIM has been through further issues, demonstrating companies’ and investors’ long-term confidence in the market.

Central to AIM’s success is a regulatory framework that is disclosure-based and designed to provide the right balance to enable entrepreneurs to flourish and investors with confidence about the standards of disclosure. The result is a market-driven governance regime that meets the requirements of issuers and investors, while allowing quoted companies the room they need to grow.

London Stock Exchange considers very carefully the regulatory model for AIM and reviews it on a regular basis. Over AIM’s 21 year history, we have adjusted the AIM Rules for Companies and Nominated Advisers, always following consultation with the market to ensure that AIM retains the appropriate structure that has made it the world’s most successful growth market

In addition to adhering to the market rules, AIM-quoted companies and their advisers, including nominated advisers, lawyers, brokers and accountants are regulated and overseen by the wider ecosystem of statutory bodies and professional associations that also regulate the Main Market.

Outlined below are the answers to the most common questions we receive about the AIM regulatory model, London Stock Exchange’s role operating the market, as well as the role other regulators play in overseeing the market.
