ESP AiM is a simple estate planning solution. Capital is invested in a diversified portfolio of 40 companies quoted on the Alternative Investment Market (AiM). After two years the value of your portfolio qualifies for full relief from inheritance tax.

ESP AiM can also be held in an ISA so you keep your existing ISA benefits whilst protecting your capital from IHT. This can help you create a wholly tax-efficient portfolio free from income, capital gains and IHT.

Transferring existing ISA investments is an easy and simple way to improve your tax efficiency as you retain income and capital gains tax relief but will then benefit from IHT relief.

Key Features

Relief from IHT after 2 years

10 year growth track period

Low fees

Available on Wrap Platforms

Diversifications and low concentration
