Why are people choosing to invest in AiM?
The demand for AiM IHT Portfolios has increased significantly in the last few years and this follows the increase in demand for alternative investments in general. This has been driven by financial advisers searching for areas where they can really demonstrate added value for their clients. Tax-efficient investments in particular are seen as an area where investors need professional help, and smaller company investing has been making headlines thanks to the popularity of the EIS, SEIS and VCT schemes and online equity crowdfunding.
AiM IHT Portfolios present an ideal planning opportunity as many companies listed on AiM qualify for Business Relief (formerly Business Property Relief) a longstanding piece of legislation introduced in 1976. Significantly, Business Relief provides full inheritance tax relief after two years (five years faster than a trust or gift), meaning that any money invested in qualifying AiM listed companies can be passed on free from inheritance tax.
In 2013 a piece of legislation was introduced that allows AiM shares to be held in an ISA, creating a wholly tax-efficient investment free from income tax, capital gains tax, and after two years, inheritance tax. This has further increased demand for professionally managed AiM portfolios.
