The new literature includes a membership directory and a brochure explaining Apcims&#39 role as lobbyist for private-client stockbrokers. It also highlights members&#39 services.

Chairman John Cobb says: "Our members are far removed from the stereotyped images often portrayed in the popular press.

Apcims, which was launched in 1990, covers more than 90 per cent of private-client stockbrokers.
