Small cap based equity mutual fund schemes is recommended only to those investors who have a very high appetite for risk and long investment horizon typically 8-10 years. This is because the returns from such funds may exhibit extreme volatility or may even remain in negative territory for a significant amount of time. However, if chosen judiciously, small cap funds reward very well to patient investors. It is very important for an investor to first evaluate his risk profile and define a realistic financial goal before making any investments. For example, an investor with an aggressive risk profile and long term goals (beyond 5 years) can choose to invest in equity mutual funds.
