Produced in association with professional services firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers, SHAREtrack100 is an index tracking the performance of this region’s 100 leading publicly-quoted companies.
We believe that the performance of East of England listed companies provides a telling barometer of the region’s progress towards its goal of becoming a truly world-class business centre.
The region is fertile ground for start-ups and SMEs, but how does the market value those enterprises bold enough to subject themselves to the steely gaze of the hard-nosed analyst. Listed companies are not
always the largest in terms of revenues or employment, but they are very often the most ambitious, the most outward-facing.
These are key qualities if the East of England is to establish itself on the global stage.Biotechnology and ICT companies are strongly represented within the SHAREtrack 100, a reflection of their position
as the key drivers of economic growth in the region. But equally, old economy players across a diverse range of sectors stake their own irrefutable claim for inclusion.
BW will continue to report the key company announcements from the week’s trading, but this coverage will be given greater impact by considering the news with reference to the performance of the
Hard facts are the bedrock on which equities exchanges around the world are built, but as any analyst will tell you interpretation is all. With that in mind, the PricewaterhouseCoopers SHAREtrack 100 will also bring you more analysis and more informed comment.
