Are smallcases’ returns guaranteed?

No, with smallcases - you are essentially buying exchange listed securities which are exposed to market risks. Investing in market instruments involves risks and investments may lose value.

Also, the returns shown for smallcases are the historical returns. smallcases do not have any projected returns shown. Past performance does not guarantee future returns.

Exiting/Selling (Whole & Partial)

From the individual smallcase page, you can find the Exit option at the right under More Actions. You can then choose a whole exit (sell all the constituents of a smallcase and exit completely) or a partial exit (book some profits while maintaining the minimum amount).

Note: Partial Exit can only be done if you’ve invested more than the minimum amount into the smallcase.

Some/all of my orders are unfilled

Orders are unfilled under the following circumstances:

  • No demat account linked with your trading account (A demat account is required to buy smallcases)
  • Insufficient funds while placing the orders (even though a funds check is conducted when you place any order - prices might have changed resulting in a/some order/s not getting filled)
  • If a stock is already sold on the broker platform, orders might be unfilled (If you have sold an stock directly via the broker platform, this does not get updated in your smallcases and hence results in unfilled orders)

Note: Partial Exit can only be done if you’ve invested more than the minimum amount into the smallcase.

What is Repair?

Repairing the batch helps you place fresh orders for those constituents that were not filled so your smallcase can be complete. For stocks that are already sold on the broker platform, contact the support team to reconcile your holdings.

What is Archive?

Archiving a batch excludes those stocks that you have unfilled orders for and completes your smallcase without placing fresh orders.

In this case, the smallcase will not be the same as the original version you meant to buy/invest more/rebalance/exit & will differ in composition & returns.
