 - the experienced authority on UK small caps
​Founded in 1996, Growth Company Investor is edited by David Thornton, a former City fund manager with 40 years stock market experience
Smaller company shares have a terrific record of long term performance: £100 invested in the NSCI 1000 Index of UK small cap shares in 1955 would be worth over £1.8m today, compared to a £0.12m return from UK equities as a whole! 
That's why we focus exclusively on small caps and conduct 250 CEO interviews a year to generate great investment ideas for our members
