2017 a stellar year for AIM with record trades and big fundraisings

The AIM Journal's Andrew Hore stopped by the Proactive studio for a Christmas catch up and look back on 2017.

''AIM has been pretty strong this year'' Hore says.

''It seems to be mainly on the back of the larger companies because if you look at the AIM 50 and AIM 100 indices they're up a bit more than a fifth - companies like Fevertree have done very well, Keywords Studios which has made  a number of acquisitions this year ... Clinigen's done pretty well and you've got the older ones like Boohoo which has really come back this year''.

Hore says new entrants coming to the market raised around £1.5bln - among them was Greencoat Renewables which brought in around £237mln of new cash and Warehouse REIT which raised £150mln.
