Small Cap & Specialist

At Shard Capital, we’re always on the lookout for small companies that exhibit the potential to grow shareholder value. We have a strong background in small cap and AIM stocks, and we make a point of regularly meeting directors and management of those companies we have relationships with. This complements our due diligence in the process of formulating a generic rating for the companies we recommend.

The Small Cap portfolio can be managed on an Advisory or Discretionary basis, and also provides access to IPOs in AIM and small companies – generally higher risk investments – aiming to help clients navigate these risks. We are also able to overcome the frustration of entry restrictions to this market, and allow clients to enjoy access and pricing usually reserved for institutions.
