It includes recruiters Robert Walters and Reed, IT companies Sage and Misys and business services company Capita. Despite a 3.4% gain in the FTSE-100 in the week to 29 March, the Accountancy Age/ADVFN index finished in the red – down over 1% on the start of the week.
The index will run each week on Accountancy Age’s Business Week page.
