Activites BMO Global Smaller Companies plc (formerly F&C Global Smaller Companies plc) seeks to exploit the high investment potential of smaller companies listed on global equity markets. Many smaller companies are not widely researched, opening up the potential for our detailed fundamental analysis to identify valuation anomalies. The greater inherent ability of smaller enterprises to grow faster than more mature, larger companies, is also positive for the long term outlook.
