Graham McCraw (Investment Specialist) and Kirsty Desson (Investment Director)
Many investors avoid smaller companies because they believe they are too risky. We believe this is a mistake. Not only have global smallers been less risky that their Europe ex-UK large-cap equivalents – they have also outperformed over most timeframes and geographies*.
That’s why, as we enter a post-pandemic world, we think investors should consider a long-term allocation to the asset class as part of their wider portfolios.
Why invest in smaller companies?
The case for smaller companies is strong. This includes compelling relative valuations, diversification benefits and a wealth of high-quality stocks from across the corporate world. However, this is a huge, under-researched universe. Finding the right opportunities requires resources, experience and a global reach.
That’s why we invite you to our webinar. Here, smaller-company specialists Graham McCraw and Kirsty Desson will layout the case for the asset-class. This includes where they are seeing the best opportunities – and what these could mean for your portfolios.
There will also be an opportunity to ask any questions you have on this topic and more.
