A focus on hard core fundamentals makes Franklin India Smaller Companies Fund a good pick for investors to avoid the big mistakes of small-cap investing. For the last 10 years and over two whole market cycles, the fund has demonstrated a consistent ability to deliver benchmark-beating performance. It looks for companies which can compound their earnings at a high rate, with good returns on capital, low capital intensity and capable management. It has been a strong outperformer in undervalued markets and shows moderation during big bull phases, a useful quality to contain losses as Indian markets turn more volatile and correction-prone. This has been one of the few funds not to shut its gates to new inflows and believes in finding investible opportunities in all kinds of markets. It has leeway to hold up to 35 per cent of its portfolio in large caps.comments powered by Disqus
