Risks – important
This, like all investments available through Wealth Club, is only for experienced investors happy to make their own investment decisions without advice.
AIM IHT portfolios are high-risk so should only form part of a balanced portfolio and you should not invest money you cannot afford to lose. Before you invest, please carefully read the Risks and Commitments and the offer documents to ensure you fully understand the risks.
AIM stocks can be hard to sell, particularly at the smaller end of the market, and can be illiquid. AIM shares can be very volatile especially if the market falls sharply. The difference between the buying and selling price of AIM-listed shares is often wider than the spread for shares listed on the main market.
rules can change and benefits depend on circumstances. Eligibility for BPR is
assessed at the date of death and will depend on the companies in the portfolio
remaining qualifying. Broadly speaking,
you will need to have held a BPR qualifying stock for at least two years and
still hold it on death to qualify.
