Oil and China to blame for AIM’s tough anniversary year, says UHY Hacker Young

Laurence Sacker, partner at accounting firm UHY Hacker Young, reflects on AIM’s 20th year – 2015 – which saw the number of juniors listed on the market drop by 52.

Low oil prices and corporate governance concerns over Chinese companies led to a sharp rise in de-listings and a tough year overall for London’s junior market, Sacker says.

Tech firms, although risky, offer the best opportunities he reckons while oilers and miners are expected to suffer again in 2016.
