Nick Leeson is this year’s keynote speaker at Small Cap Awards 2019

The Small Cap Awards is an annual opportunity to recognise outstanding achievement focused on smaller quoted companies.

The Awards ceremony, which this year will take place on 26 June at the Montcalm Hotel in Central London, shines a light on the best companies and participants in the small and micro-cap community (sub £100m market capitalisation) across nine categories. The keynote speech at the ceremony will be given by Nick Leeson, whose rogue trading caused the collapse of Barings Bank.

Since it started in mid-2012, the Small Cap Club has successfully enabled leaders and participants in the micro-cap sector to meet regularly, based on the premise that meeting people builds trust and creates new areas of thinking and opportunity, and the regular networking events have gone from strength to strength.

This year the Small Cap Awards is delighted to announce headline partnership with Project Heather.

Tomás Carruthers, Founder and CEO of Project Heather, said:

“We are delighted to be supporting this event as we work towards launching our own stock exchange built on impact principles. The small cap universe is incredibly important to the economy and we hope the launch of a new exchange will encourage more businesses to join it and realise their plans and ambitions through a listing.”

In addition, the event is co-sponsored by the highly respected commercial law firm Hamlins LLP and the Top 20 national audit and accountancy firm UHY Hacker Young. This year the NEX Exchange Company of the Year award is sponsored by NEX Exchange. The awards are organised by London event and network agency Lily & Piper.

The nominations have been selected by a judging panel comprised of leaders in the Small Cap sector and is Chaired by Claire Noyce, Managing Partner at Hybridan LLP.
