Small Cap Awards 2020 Judging Panel Announcement

Awards Chair, Claire Noyce, Managing Partner at Hybridan announces judging panel for the 2020 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 25 June at The Montcalm Hotel in Central London, celebrates companies and participants in the small and micro-cap community (sub £200m market capitalisation) 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 co-sponsorship with the highly respected commercial law firm Hamlins LLP and the Top 20 national audit and accountancy firm UHY Hacker Young. The awards are this year for the first time organised by Master Investor, which specialises in connecting companies and private investors 

The nominations will be selected by a judging panel comprised of leaders in the Small Cap sector and is Chaired by Claire Noyce, Managing Partner at Hybridan LLP.

The winners in each category will be announced on Thursday 25th June at a black-tie event held at The Montcalm Hotel, Marble Arch, 2, Wallenberg Place, Marylebone, London, W1H 7TN and will celebrate success for UK listed Small Caps.

Peter Dickson, the UK’s most prolific voiceover artist best known as the voice of E4, and the brand voice of The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent, will return for the eighth year to host the event.

The event will be attended by institutions, fund managers, brokers, company directors, entrepreneurs and advisors, creating a chance for all attendees to network with those who have shown exceptional growth and performance in the small cap environment over the last year.
