Throughout that time we’ve published Red Hot Penny Shares and Penny Sleuth to help private investors get to grips with the FTSE small-cap and Alternative Investment Market (Aim) to find the best growth companies in the UK.

Here at MoneyWeek, we can show you ways to research and find the best growth companies in the UK.
