Create your own smallcase

Build your portfolio from scratch, or use an existing smallcase to start

smallcase is the easiest way to invest in portfolios of stocks

Portfolio investing is the best & right way to invest in the stock markets, since you are taking a diversified approach to investing in stocks (more here). Also, on smallcase – each portfolio is tied to a market theme, trending idea or a model strategy helping you take a informed decision about where your money is going

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

  • Discover/Create – finding portfolio-related research or creating your own portfolio happens on different platforms – your broker research, advisory, screeners
  • Buy – to buy a portfolio of 20 stocks, it takes you over 100 clicks/20 minutes to buy each stock
  • Track – since brokerage interfaces do not support multiple portfolio tracking, you have to export your portfolios onto spreadsheets or portfolio tracking apps & tools to see how they’re performing
  • Manage – investing more in a specific portfolio, or rebalancing/exiting the portfolio takes another 120+ clicks on your broker interface

With smallcase – you can now buy & manage portfolios in 2-clicks, seamlessly integrated with your broker. You can choose from over 60 readymade smallcases to start investing in

This week, we also launched the Create your smallcase flow 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 20 stocks
  • Get started with adding a stock, 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 organize and categorize them as shown

  • You can pick between an Equi-weighted or Market Cap-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

3. See the past performance of your created smallcase & buy it instantly

  • 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

Customize an existing smallcase

You can also use an existing smallcase to start with, and customize the stocks (add or remove stocks), change weights and then buy. When you do this, you will not receive any updates made to the original version of the smallcase though – so only customize a smallcase if you know what you’re doing

You can customize a smallcase from the Stocks & Weights tab of that smallcase page

With this feature, it’s now easy to create, buy, track & manage multiple portfolios for different use-cases you may have for example: Long Term Bets, Stocks for April, Dad’s Portfolio, Kids’ education etc

The fees for buying a customized/created smallcase are the same at a flat Rs. 100 for each smallcase. No additional charges from our end when you invest more, add/remove stocks or exit your smallcase


  • You can only add NSE stocks to create/customize your smallcase
  • Your smallcase will be private and will be visible only to you
