When we started smallcase, we knew how cumbersome it is for individuals to invest in portfolios of stocks/ETFs — all brokerage platforms are optimized & built for single security transactions, while portfolio exposure was only available via mutual funds & ETFs
Investors would place individual orders for all stocks in the baskets, and track it separately by entering each trade in portfolio tracking apps. For research/advisory firms that provided portfolio research, the task of showcasing & disseminating their research was even tougher — with mailing lists, Whatsapp/Slack groups, multiple Google spreadsheets, the list is endless..
This learning was how the smallcases Platform has been developed over the last 2 years. A smallcase is a basket of stocks or ETFs that reflects a certain idea or strategy. The smallcases Platform enables retail investors to either select from readymade stock smallcases or create their own, track it with a real-time smallcase value, set up SIPs/invest more, add/remove stocks from within the smallcase or exit partially/completely
During this process, we also started building a platform for our in-house Research team to create, publish & update their research as smallcases. While integrating with other brokers, we started enabling their research teams to create & publish their own smallcases using the same interface — what we now call the Publisher Platform
The Publisher Platform is built for licensed professionals (individuals/firms) to deliver stock/ETF-based portfolio research/advice to their clients. It helps them
The Publisher Platform is currently used by our in-house Research team to create & manage our smallcases, Broker Research teams like HDFC Securities Research, AxisDirect Research, 5Paisa Research for their model portfolios, Diwali/2019 Picks & even new ideas like Shubh Aarambh, Magic Formula exclusively for their clients
Last week, our first independent smallcase manager also went live. Alok Jain of Weekend Investing — a SEBI registered Investment Advisor that focuses exclusively on momentum strategies launched new portfolios as smallcases with his dedicated microsite here — weekendinvesting.smallcase.com
