13 January 2014 | Events

The small and mid cap sector has outperformed all other global assets classes over one- and five-year periods, excluding Japan. But not all companies enjoyed the ride and that momentum has eased at the close of 2013.

Joe Brent, Liberum's well-regarded Head of Equity Research, is the UK expert in this sector and is to host a breakfast for professional investors on whether a shift from value to growth is underway. 

If you're a private client broker or institutional investor and wish to attend Joe's breakfast then email Liberum's Corporate Access Manager Jenni Herbert.

It will take place on Friday 17 January at 08:30 hours at Liberum's London offices. 

If you are a professional investor (we're unable to respond to retail investors) and would like to receive a copy of the Liberum Small & Mid Cap 2014 Annual then contact Joe
