LSE Chief advocates for SMEs

“There are 21.7 million people unemployed in Europe, and 23 million SMEs. If each SME were able to take on one more person…?This is why governments across Europe must look at all they can do to assist SME growth; these businesses are the essence of our future prosperity,” said Xavier Rolet, CEO of the London Stock Exchange last night at the AIM annual awards ceremony.
This year, the old Billingsgate Fish Market (built in 1874) hosted the event, which has arguably the best views of Tower Bridge in the city. Over 1,300 guests attended the dinner, comprising  AIM quoted companies, NOMADS, brokers, accountants, lawyers and public and investor relations firms, making it the largest AIM gathering in the City. Sponsors of the event ranged from Argus to Zeus. And the overall winner of evening, taking the Company of the Year Award was May Gurney.
