About Blackrock Smaller Companies Trust Plc

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:

  • A portfolio of companies with strong growth potential, blended to diversify risk.
  • Exposure to quality smaller companies with successful management teams, strong balance sheets, a reliable record of revenue growth and a competitive market position.
  • Companies selected by an experienced smaller companies team.
