What are Small-Cap Mutual Funds?

Small-Cap funds are a kind of Equity Mutual Fund, that focuses most of its investment, in shares of companies, that have market capitalization, less than INR 500 Crore and are ranked below 250 in terms of market capitalization.

Small-Cap funds, by investing in small-cap companies, take the advantage of their growth potential in the long run as they are young firms, but at the same time, the risk of investing in small-cap is a bit high than in large-cap and mid-cap companies.

Small-Cap funds invest at least 65% of its assets in small-cap equity, the rest of the assets can be either invested in large-cap, mid-cap or small-cap equity.

During the rising market, small-caps can perform their best, while during a downturn of the market, small-caps can perform their worst, thus it is always advised to an investor, invest in small-cap funds, only when they are in the position to carry a high level of risk.
