2021 Judging Panel Announcement


Awards Chair, Claire Noyce, Managing Partner at Hybridan announces judging panel for the 2021 Small Cap Awards

The Small Cap Awards is an annual opportunity to recognise outstanding achievement focused on smaller quoted companies.

The Awards ceremony, which this year will take place on 11 November 2021 at The Montcalm Hotel in Central London, celebrates companies and participants in the small and micro-cap community (sub £200m market capitalisation) on January 1st 2020 or on first day of listing across various categories.

Since it started in mid-2012, the Small Cap Club has successfully enabled leaders and participants in the small-cap sector to meet regularly, based on the premise that meeting people builds trust and creates new areas of thinking and opportunity, and the regular networking events have gone from strength to strength.

This year the Small Cap Awards is delighted to announce sponsorship with the highly respected international commercial law firm Hill Dickinson, Share Registrars, a CREST enabled registrar and Aquis, one of only two regulated equity exchanges in the UK. The awards are organised by Master Investor, which specialises in connecting companies and investors and is in association with Hybridan LLP.
