More About This Fund

About Axis Small Cap Fund

An open-ended equity scheme, predominantly investing in small cap stocks, Axis Small Cap Fund is focused at generating alpha with a diversified portfolio of stocks. The fund follows a bottoms up approach to invest in small cap companies while identifying long term businesses. The fund managers aim at building a portfolio of volatile stock movements whilst considering the risks involved.

Since the fund is known to invest in companies of smaller market capitalization, the fund may fall deeply when the stock prices fall in comparison to ones that invest in companies of larger market capitalization.

Who Should Invest?

  • You can also look at the CRISIL rating of the fund while making your investment decision, as it gives an idea about the overall performance of the fund over the years, based on its historical returns data and portfolio attributes
  • When the market is bullish, small cap funds tend to outperform mid cap and large cap funds owing to their high growth prospects. Thus, this fund is suitable for investors who are seeking capital appreciation over the long term
  • The fund offers a diversified portfolio, predominated by equity and related securities investing in companies with small market capitalizations. Therefore, you may consider this fund if you are willing to invest in a diversified portfolio consisting of equity and equity related instruments of small cap companies
  • All the equity funds are subject to market risks. Being a small-cap fund, there is a moderate level of risk involved in this fund. Hence, you must be ready to bear a moderately higher level of risk with this fund
  • The fund is considered suitable for investors with a long term investment horizon, of over 5-7 years. However, being a small cap fund, investors may also gain from the short term volatility of the fund

Taxation- How will they be Taxed?

The short term capital gains from the investments in this fund are taxed at 15% if the units are sold within the time period of 1 year from the date of allotment. However, the long term capital gains made on the sale of units priced at over Rs. 1 lakh, within a year from the date of allotment are taxed at 10% without indexation.

For an example-

If an investor has made a capital gain of ₹50000 on investment in an equity fund, Short Term Capital Gains Tax of 15% would be levied if s/he withdraws the amount within one year of investment. The payable tax would be ₹7500.

Also, if an investor has made a capital gain of ₹1.5 lakh on investment in an equity fund, and withdraws the amount after 1 year of investment, Long Term Capital Gains Tax of 10% would be levied on ₹50000. ₹1Lakh is exempted from taxation. The payable tax would be ₹5000.
