Blue Orbit: Be Different, Be Better

Global Small Caps is an often overlooked segment of the market. With tech stocks and other global mega-caps dominating the headlines, many investors are unaware of the huge opportunities available in the smaller capitalisation end of the market.

Small Caps offer investors the opportunity to invest in companies at an early stage in their growth cycle, and to benefit from the inefficiencies in the market to access superior returns. Through our extensive research and experience in this segment of the market, Blue Orbit outlines some key points on why you should consider a small-cap allocation in your portfolio.
