Recognising tax-efficient investment managers who champion AIM with advisers and investors and can demonstrate both outstanding performance and real commitment to the market.

Open to any investment manager with an AIM VCT, AIM EIS or an AIM IHT portfolio service, this award is judged on the portfolios’s performance, investee selection, efforts to champion the AIM market, product development and adviser outreach. Judges will consider how the portfolio has performed against its stated objectives and its peers, how the capital has been deployed and what activity the fund manager has undertaken to both promote AIM and engage with advisers.

The Best AIM Investment Manager will be recognised as an exemplary UK Smaller Company investor focusing on the junior market.

“There are now around five million small businesses powering Britain, and an increasing number are turning to alternative sources of investment. Just as the business owners are learning how to improve their pitch to compete for funding, the platforms themselves have had to raise their game as new entrants to this space have multiplied. As an organisation representing the interests of over 75,000 small business owners and their advisers, Enterprise Nation supports the Growth Investor Awards in recognising those platforms best enabling them to secure investment and grow.”
