AIM launches website detailing members&#39 info

AIM has launched a website providing detailed information about the 400 plus companies listed with it.

Access to the site costs £10 a week, but is free until the end of August.

AIM managing director Bill Johnson says: “AIM quoted companies offer attractive investment opportunities. However, many of those listed are under-researched and the haphazard distribution of information has made it difficult for financial institutions to obtain the background that they need to make informal judgements.”
