A smallcase is a basket of upto 50 stocks/ETFs that is easy to buy, track & manage

There are over 60 smallcases on the platform that are built by a certified research team that you can find here. These smallcases are tied to different market themes, trending ideas or model strategies that make it easier to take exposure to Indian stocks

However, investing in portfolios is a cumbersome process, involving atleast 3 different portals, also the four steps involved take a lot of time, and clicks. More here

On the smallcases platform, you can Create your own smallcase to help you build your own portfolios and invest in them easily

In 3 steps, you can create your smallcase and invest in it immediately

1. Select your stocks & organize them by segments

  • A smallcase is a weighted list of upto 50 stocks/ETFs
  • Get started with adding a stock/ETF, and use the similar stocks widget to see more stocks in the same sector
  • Once you have added all your required stocks, use ‘segments’ to organise and categorise them as shown

2. Assign a weighting scheme for these stocks, or weight them individually

  • You can pick between an Equi-weighted or Market Cap-weighted or Custom weighted scheme to weight your smallcase (more on weighting a portfolio here
  • Else, you can assign individual weights to your stocks or even choose the number of shares for each stock
  • While assigning weights, you can see the final weights/shares for that stock along with the minimum investment amount for this smallcase. This minimum amount ensures you’re buying the stocks with the weights you have allocated
  • If you wish to change the allocation of the stocks by its shares, you can choose "Shares" instead of weights and can adjust the number of shares. 

3. See the past performance of your created smallcase 

  • While adding your stocks, and assigning weights – you can see how the smallcase would have performed in the last 1 year with respect to the general market (Nifty)
  • Once you are happy with the stocks, weights – you can add details for your smallcase – image, name, overview and buy it immediately
  • Or you can also save your smallcase for later, track it on your Drafts page and buy it whenever you feel like

4. Buy it Instantly or with the AMO orders. 

You can buy the smallcase instantly during the market hours. 

 If you are placing the orders after market hours, the orders will execute in the next market day within the pre market hours: 09:00 AM to 09:14 AM.

When you place the Buy order during the Non Market hours, you will get the below message before confirming the order. And the order will be in pending status until it gets executed.

You will also have the option to cancel the order before execution from the Orders page > Select the recent Buy order > 'Cancel this order' > Cancel Order as in the below snip.

Note: Please maintain a surplus cash of some additional amount in your Zerodha funds. This is to ensure you have enough funds to purchase all the stocks instantly in case if the stocks price hiked up.
