At smallcase, we believe transparency is one of the most important characteristic of a financial instrument. Working in this direction, we have recently introduced lots of new features on the platform

1. Valuation and Sharpe Ratios

Now you can see and compare valuation ratios of a smallcase vs. benchmark — just click on the compare ratio button on the bottom right side of the historical performance chart. You can access this information for Quality – Smart Beta smallcase here.

Comparing smallcase vs. benchmark ratios

The best part is that all the valuation ratios for both smallcase and benchmark are calculated on a consolidated basis, not on standalone numbers.

2. Market Cap Distribution

This features enables you to see how much of your money would be going into largecap, midcap or smallcap section of the market, if you decide to invest in the smallcase. This can be seen post broker login just below the stocks and weights of the smallcase

5. Improved Risk Labels

Understanding risk of a financial instrument is as important as analyzing returns. To ensure that users understand the associated risk, we have started using the new color scheme and are highlighting the risk labels right at the top of the smallcase page.
