Mahindra Manulife Small Cap Fund (NFO) Conclusion:
Small-cap companies have the potential to create wealth and generate alpha over the long term. Small caps are generally under-researched and under-owned and hence provide an opportunity for stock-picking at reasonable valuations. Small caps also provide exposure to companies that are potential market leaders in the industries they operate in for example textile, paper, sugar, and luggage, and have the potential to become midcaps tomorrow as they achieve scale. However, small-cap stocks are highly volatile and susceptible to market risk. Therefore, this product is suitable for investors who are seeking long-term capital appreciation and are seeking Investment predominantly in equity and equity-related securities of small-cap companies. Investors should consult with financial advisers at Elite Wealth if in doubt about whether the product is suitable for them.
