Numis Indices

The Numis Smaller Companies Index is the most widely used UK smaller companies benchmark. It was created by Professor Elroy Dimson and Professor Paul Marsh of London Business School, who have been instrumental in promoting a global understanding of the smaller companies effect that traces the long term outperformance of smaller companies. In recent years Numis has extended its range of indices to include the Numis UK Mid Cap index and the Numis Alternative Markets index. The Numis indices are compiled by Paul Marsh and Scott Evans at London Business School.
