AIM Research notes can play a key role in an investors decision whether to invest (or NOT) in your AIM quoted company.
AIM Research is commissioned to offer an independent view of your companies' performance over a long or short period. The research note will rarely offer a specific recommendation, rather spell out the facts and key drivers that would influence a potential investor to make the decision to invest in your AIM company. Analysts will often look back and inevitably forward, speculating as to how your company is expected to perform over the next financial period. AIM Research comprises of a variety of publications from single page 'bulletins' that respond to a significant company event or change, through to larger multi-page pieces that respond to the Reports & Accounts or Annual General Meeting (AGM).
This valuable AIM research is distributed to brokers and released on the investor relations part of your website for investors to access, it is a key part of your Investor Communications.
