Q&A with the QCA Investor Forum

As part of our 25th Anniversary celebrations we are looking to explore how investment in small and mid-size quoted companies can be improved. To discuss this issue we have two panels covering what investors are looking for when making investment decisions in companies and how companies can communicate their story with the press. The panels will be made up of institutional investors, financial journalists, PR experts, and a nominated adviser and broker. 

Topic 1: Fund Manager Debate:  'How can investment in small and mid-cap companies be improved'.

Investor will explain how companies can best communicate relevant information in a worthwhile way and what they look for when making investment decisions. Hear from investors that are responsible for funds that cover micro to mid-cap sized companies, as well as private client portfolios.
