UK Smaller Companies

Introduction to UK Smaller Companies

Investing in smaller companies focuses on those with relatively low market capitalisations, typically those companies contained within the FTSE Small Cap, FTSE Fledgling, FTSE Aim or Numis Smaller Companies indices. Generally, smaller companies can be heading in two directions - they may be newer, fast growing companies, or they may be yesterday's fallen angels. In both cases, the risks are likely to be greater than with a larger and more established company. Find out more about UK Smaller Companies
