David O'Hara writes for December aimZine

Blackthorn Focus' Founder David O'Hara appears again this month in aimZine, the online magazine for the AIM community.

In his article Private Investor Power, David discusses the phenomenon of increased private investor activity within the AIM market.

"There is currently a two-tier investment market within the UK", says Mr O'Hara. "It is not just Blackthorn Focus that sees this, recent comments from Gavin Oldham, CEO of share plc, in the Roundtable Discussion Solutions for Smallcap Markets echo this. Retail investors play a huge role in the market but struggle to get access to research and company executives. On AIM, this influence is manifesting itself with a number of recent board appointments and I expect more to follow."
