Heart of Hardman: Winter 2022 newsletter

08 Dec 2022 / News
Winter 2022

As we come to the end of another busy year at Hardman & Co, we wish everyone in our network a restful festive season.

It’s been a tumultuous time in the UK, with equity markets under significant pressure. Throughout, our research remains an integral and trusted part of the investment process for many UK investors.

After a year of disappointing IPOs, many corporates are dealing with funding issues, with weaker sterling, rising inflation, interest rate hikes and recession talk all hitting investor confidence. While all this sounds unusually un-festive for this time of year, read our latest Insight, Quoted company engagement with retail investors – a new world, for good news about changing attitudes towards retail investors. Written jointly with the Quoted Companies Alliance, the report explores how engaging with retail investors bolsters liquidity and ESG credentials. You can also watch Keith discussing the findings in our interview here.

Throughout the year Hardman & Co has expanded its network of investors and corporates, bolstering our service offering to add value to both sides of the equity market. Tough markets call for more, and better, commentary and high-quality communication – a challenge we are delighted to meet.
