Survey: AIM firms lack comms cred

Half of institutional investors do not consider AIM companies’ communications effective, according to a new survey.

The research, compiled by accountants and business advisors Baker Tilly and lawyers Faegre & Benson, suggests AIM companies need to boost their comms programmes.

Only 51 per cent of the 203 AIM companies surveyed said they received some introduction to, or instruction in, IR as part of their IPO process.

But the number of companies turning to IR advisors is rising. ‘It is encouraging to see that the number of ­companies receiving formal IR instruction as part of the IPO process has risen by 10 per cent in the past two years,’ said ­Faegre & Benson head of London Corporate Group Max ­Audley.
