Joining AIM


AIM offers smaller growing companies the benefits of a world-class public market within a regulatory environment designed specifically to meet their needs.

Admission process

Once a company has made the decision to seek a quotation on AIM, the first step is to identify and appoint a Nomad who will help the company come to market. Nomads have a deep understanding of the needs and aspirations of companies seeking admission to AIM, and are highly experienced in guiding them through the flotation process.

Other advisers are also integral in supporting a company through the admission process. Such advisers usually include a broker, law firm, accountants, public relations and investor relations firms. Following appointment of advisers, the company will need to prepare an admission document that includes details about its directors, financial position, business activities and strategy. This is prepared in close consultation with the Nomad.

Appropriate regulation for smaller companies

AIM is renowned worldwide for its balanced approach to regulation which is uniquely suited to smaller companies. The AIM Rules are concise and principles based. Nomads are responsible for advising companies on the interpretation of and compliance with the rules.
