We believe that an effective research campaign should be guided and driven by client dynamics, not a broker's short term pressures. Our coverage can help ensure proper understanding of an investment case, raise the client's profile and generate a more educated pool of investors. Progressive is authorised and regulated by the FCA and has a proven track record, having provided coverage on over 60 UK quoted companies across a range of sectors since its formation in 2012. Our team of highly respected analysts all have many years of experience at top City banks - their focussed efforts can grab the attention of a wide range of investors - institutional, private client and retail.
PrimaryBid - Awards Sponsor
PrimaryBid is a leading online funding platform that enables investors to gain access to placings and fundraisings of AIM-listed companies in a way that regulation and market structure has made difficult in the past. The platform enables the large and active private investor market to subscribe to new placings, at the same price as institutions, adding incremental funds to an existing capital raise. This boosts volume for AIM companies seeking to raise capital. To date £30m has been sourced for issuers, via the platform.
