Numis Smaller Companies Index
Numis is hosting its annual presentation on the Numis Smaller Companies Index, and associated issues in the UK Smaller Companies universe, on Wednesday 15 January 2020 in London. This will be followed by a similar presentation on Thursday 16 January 2020 in Edinburgh.
The speakers will be Professor Paul Marsh and Scott Evans of London Business School. They will discuss the recent and longer term performance of the Numis Smaller Companies family of indices, including style and sector performance. In addition, in common with previous annual presentations, they will discuss selected other topics of interest to smaller companies investors.
The Numis Smaller Companies Index is one of the most venerable stock market indices in the UK, having been first published in 1987 and with a back-history dating from 1955. The Index has become the leading benchmark for UK Small Cap investing, covering approximately 700 companies which make up the bottom 10% of the UK market by value (market capitalisation cut-off last year c.£1.5 billion). The companion index, the Numis Smaller Companies plus AIM index, has around 1,700 constituent companies. In addition, covering different size ranges, there is a minnows index - the Numis 1000 Index, and a Numis Mid Cap Index. Finally the Numis Alternative Markets Index tracks the performance of the whole AIM market (the only currently qualifying Alternative Market).
