Alternative Investment Market

The Alternative Investment Market (AIM) is a second-tier stock market in London, and is part of the LSE or London Stock Exchange group. The AIM was launced in June 1995 and caters for smaller growing companies which would not qualify for listing on the main market, and that perhaps wouldn't get the same attention on the main market. The rules and regulations on the AIM are also relatively less onerous than on the main LSE market, thus assisting smaller companies in gaining access to capital to fund expansion and growth.

Synonyms: AIM, LSE, London Stock Exchange
