AIM Inheritance Tax (IHT) Investment Service

As part of inheritance tax planning, clients can benefit from our AIM IHT Investment Service, which potentially gives exemption from inheritance tax after only two years by investing in companies that qualify for business relief.

About AIM (The Alternative Investment Market)

Launched in 1995 with just ten companies. It is a less tightly regulated market than the main London Stock Exchange, AIM provides a lower cost alternative for growth companies. It has seen some tremendous successes over the years with the likes of ASOS and Fever-Tree growing into multi billion pound companies, and now boasts over 1000 companies (N.B. not all AIM listed companies qualify for business relief and therefore inclusion in an AIM IHT portfolio).  It should also be noted that it has seen its fair share of failures too. Investing in AIM carries greater risk than investing in blue chip FTSE stocks but may be advantageous for some clients as part of a broader investment universe.

We will only manage portfolios within our AIM Inheritance Tax (IHT) Investment Service, where the client has received specific advice to do so from a qualified and regulated professional.
