Equity market goes through cycles. If you were to see the relative valuation of small caps vs Sensex, it is trading close to long term averages. However, we believe some fundamentally sound stocks in the segment may still have room for further growth and potential to scale fresh peaks. There are pockets of value and several bottom-up stories that can translate into upside for the portfolio. It is with this conviction that after 11 funds each in 3 asset classes of equity, debt and gold, we are pleased to launch another cap to the feather to help augment your equity portfolio.
