ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the rebound in small capitals in Great Britain which tends to make smaller companies see them outperform in bull markets. According to the article, the risky nature of the funds is depicted by the fact that firms tend to have high debt-to-equity ratios. Hargreaves Lansdown head of research Mark Dampier believes that investing or not in small capitals depends on how investors view the rally.
