Bengaluru-based Manoj MJ came to know about smallcase in February 2017. He took his time to understand smallcases and began investing a month later with the Bringing the Bling smallcase. “My currently P&L is up by 44%,” says Manoj. “I had never imagined such returns after dabbling in individual stocks. I have now earned more profits from smallcases than any other investments in just one year.”
What Manoj likes the most about smallcase is how easy it is to get started. “Everything happens so easily in just two clicks,” he says. “I don’t think it was ever possible to buy top-performing stocks through themes and ideas so easily before smallcase.”
Manoj believes that traditional equity investments are risky and smallcases help him take the risk out to a certain extent thanks to the portfolio-based investing approach they allow him to take.
“The pain point I faced during investing in individual stocks was research,” says Manoj. “I had to constantly keep following the news to know where to invest.” For him, this was a major hassle that smallcase removed. He likes the idea of selecting a smallcase he can relate to and investing in it to benefit from all the hard work that the smallcase team has already done.
“Now, whenever I have surplus money, I just buy a smallcase knowing that the money is in good hands,” says Manoj. “I can relax and be sure that my money will grow.” Manoj also says that the reports and graphs shown with each smallcase are very reassuring and increase his confidence to invest.
On a slightly lighter note, Manoj says that for a software engineer, the smallcase product is a delight to use. “smallcase is a breath of fresh air while our banks and other financial institutions are still stuck in age-old designs and cockpit-like controls,” he quips.
“I see myself coming back to smallcase because it is so easy to buy, track and sell investments here,” says Manoj. He also says he’s a huge fan and asks his friends and colleagues to open a account and get started with smallcase investments. “Over the past year, I have made at least 5 people invest in smallcases,” he says. “And without exception, all of them thank me for introducing them to smallcase.”
