This paper examines the nature and importance of seasonal fluctuations in the UK equity market. Our analysis reveals that returns on the FT-A All Share index exhibit significant seasonality which is best described by a deterministic seasonal model. We also establish that evidence of seasonal variation is robust across size sorted portfolios and remains unaffected by the introduction of a proxy for risk.
