European small cap outperformance set to continue for 10 months


Small cap stocks have outperformed their larger counterparts by 3.29 per cent year-to-date, according to Euromoney Indices. 

The last time European smaller companies delivered sustainable outperformance compared to their larger counterparts was from December 2012 to March 2014, indicating that the trend current trend could continue for another 10 months.  

So far this year the Euromoney Smaller Companies Index has returned 24.19 per cent, compared to 20.90 per cent for the Euromoney EMIX Europe Index. 

The top performing small caps in 2015 have been Banca Popolare di Milano (+76.04 per cent), Spanish electricals company Gamesa Corporación Tecnológica (+87.06 per cent) and Finnish tyre producer Nokian (+56.88 per cent).

Sui Chung, managing director of Euromoney Indices, says: “Europe’s small caps are arguably the region’s most entrepreneurial and innovative companies and our research indicates that there are more gains to come in the sector. We are firm believers that in today’s low growth climate investors need to include smaller companies in their portfolios to access meaningful returns. Many fund managers are heralding 2015 as the year for smaller companies and the valuation premium for European small caps relative to large caps has fallen, presenting an attractive entry point for investors.”
