Fund Objective

HDFC Small Cap Fund is a type of mutual fund that invests primarily in small-cap stocks. These stocks are considered riskier investments than large-cap stocks but also have the potential for higher returns. HDFC Asset Management Company Limited manages the fund.

The fund’s investment objective aims to increase capital over the long term by investing in small-cap companies and various equity and equity-related securities.

Pros & Cons

Pros Cons
The fund invests in small-cap companies, which have the potential for higher returns than larger, more established companies. Small-cap funds invest in small and mid-sized companies, which can be more volatile and risky than large-cap companies.
The fund is managed by experienced professionals who use a research-driven approach to identify and invest in promising small-cap companies. Small-cap stocks may not be as liquid as large-cap stocks, meaning it may be harder to buy or sell them at a fair price.
The fund has a strong track record of performance, consistently outperforming its benchmark and peers over the long term. Small-cap funds may have a higher concentration of stocks in a particular sector or region, which can increase the risk of loss if that sector or region underperforms.

Who Should Invest in HDFC Small Cap Fund?

The HDFC Small Cap Fund mutual fund invests primarily only in small-cap stocks. Small-cap stocks have a higher risk-return ratio than large-cap stocks. The HDFC Small Cap Fund is suited for investors with a high-risk tolerance and long-term investment goals.

Investors who seek higher returns and are prepared to take on the volatility associated with small-cap stocks are also suitable for this fund.

Before investing in HDFC Small Cap Fund, or any other mutual fund, investors need to consider their overall investment portfolio and risk profile.

What are the Benefits of Investing in HDFC Small Cap Fund?

The HDFC Small Cap Fund may offer several benefits. Here are some of them:

  1. Potential for higher returns: Stocks with small caps have the potential for higher returns than stocks with large caps because they are less valued and offer more growth.

  3. Management by professionals: The HDFC Small Cap Fund is professionally managed and invested in undervalued small-cap stocks.
