Blackrock Smaller Companies Trust (BRSC)

Smaller companies, chosen well, can be a strong contributor to portfolio returns. They will often be at the vanguard of innovation, and as such may display faster organic growth. They will often be driven by entrepreneurial management, and may be the beneficiaries of merger and acquisition activity. As such, we believe they have a place as part of a diversified portfolio.

Nevertheless, investors should note that the share prices of smaller companies may experience greater volatility than other types of investment and not every company will be a winner. BlackRock Smaller Companies Trust plc offers:
