UK Small Cap companies means junior companies on the UK stock market. We like them because they offer a higher risk element to the stock market.
Investing in them whilst they are still relatively small can offer great upside. The FTSE AIM All Share Index (a small cap index) has grown by over 70% in the last 5 years compared to 7.5% growth in the FTSE100.
It’s an area close to our heart – we’ve had really good personal success by being exposed to UK Small Caps.
