We are thrilled to have been named Best BR Investment Manager – Listed at the fifth annual Growth Investor Awards, the landmark event that celebrates the standout investment providers who help SMEs to thrive.

This award was open to any investment manager specialising in AIM investments qualifying for Business Relief. The judges looked at the performance of their service over the past 12 months, assessing their success across investee company selection, investment volume and inflows, adviser relations, customer feedback, and overall impact.

TIME:AIM was previously named ‘One to Watch’ in 2017 and it is fantastic to now take home the trophy.

For five years, these awards have shone a spotlight on the providers who have an impact beyond investment: creating jobs, boosting economic growth, and supporting innovation. With the growth capital they provide, ambitious businesses are able to scale up and make the UK one of the most dynamic places in the world in which to start a business.

This is the third time we have been named Best BR Investment Manager, having previously held titles in 2015 and 2018.


We are also delighted to be Runner Up for the inaugural Team of the Year award.

Presented by City A.M. this prestigious award was open to any team working within the growth investment community to deliver exceptional results.


Nigel Ashfield, Managing Director of TIME Investments, commented, “We are delighted that TIME:AIM has been recognised as the award winning AIM service by the Growth Investor Awards 2019. Its ‘smart passive’ investment strategy remains unique in the market. It is a great endorsement for the service, which is celebrating its third anniversary this month. We are also humbled for the recognition given to our wider team in the new category, Team of the Year”.

Guy Tolhurst, Managing Director of Intelligent Partnership, the organiser of these long-standing awards said, “We launched the Growth Investor Awards five years ago to celebrate the inspiring individuals and leading organisations whose talents and commitment help growing businesses to power Britain’s economic growth”.

He added, “The winning companies at this year’s event demonstrate the impact beyond investment of growth capital. Every penny of investment in early-stage businesses has a real-world effect. It inspires optimism in growing teams, creates jobs, boosts regional economies and drives innovation”.


Finalists have been chosen by Intelligent Partnership’s research team, guided by an advisory board. The best entries were passed to a second round of judging carried out by at least three people from an independent panel of 41 judges, to provide a diverse mix of qualified perspectives. All of the judges’ scores are collated to determine the winner, with all finalists receiving a personalised feedback and benchmarking report to provide insight about areas for improvement.
