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.

With a small portion of your investment pot, it can be fun and rewarding to invest in a select group of penny shares. Here at MoneyWeek, we can show you ways to research and find the best growth companies in the UK.
