Over 350 members of the small and mid-size quoted company community, including company directors, investors, market operators, policymakers and regulators, attended the Quoted Companies Alliance 21st Annual Dinner on 9 September 2015 at The Dorchester hotel. The event was sponsored by London Stock Exchange, with Morningstar as a supporting sponsor of the evening. HSBC Commercial Banking sponsored the champagne reception and Winterflood Securities sponsored the after dinner drinks.
Alexander Justham, Chief Executive Officer, London Stock Exchange plc, spoke at the 9 September event, highlighting the importance of UK small and mid-size companies to the growth of the UK economy. He noted that AIM quoted firms added the equivalent of £25 billion to UK GDP, as well as 731,000 jobs.
Michael Higgins, Chairman of the Quoted Companies Alliance, also addressed attendees, highlighting small and mid-size quoted companies’ role in fuelling UK economic growth. He pointed out that our membership has reached its highest level since 1999 and that small and mid-size quoted companies seem well prepared to weather any future challenges – whether political or economic.
