Small cap funds provides inflation beating growth over the long term and is suitable for investment objectives with duration of 10-15 years or longer (minimum 5 years).
These funds invest in the smallest companies listed on the exchanges.
Early in their growth cycle, these companies have the potential for very high growth but this comes with very high uncertainty as the business is not yet proven.
Price fluctuations are highest in the stocks of these companies translating to high NAV fluctuations for the funds.Smaller companies also tend to have low trade volumes - exposing the fund to the risk of not being able to exit in a down market.While showing periodic spikes in performance,these funds have not done better than diversified equity funds over the long term.Investors are therefore better off investing in diversified funds rather than this category.
Scripbox does not recommend investing in the dividend option of a fund because dividends are taxable at a higher rate than withdrawals.
