As financial awareness continues to grow, we understand that the wealth of information available on investing can be daunting. At smallcase, our mission is to demystify the complexities surrounding investing by offering user-friendly tools that streamline every investor’s path towards creating a resilient and well-diversified portfolio. That’s why we’re introducing Investment Score on smallcase – to empower investors with clear and actionable insights, to make it easier for them to achieve their financial goals.

What is the Investment Score?

The Investment Score reflects the current state of your investments in Mutual Funds, Stocks/ETFs, and smallcases as objectively as possible. It’s a comprehensive metric that offers valuable insights and actionables to enhance the overall health of your portfolio.

  • The score is calculated based on two major factors: diversification among different assets and investing discipline
  • The score is calculated out of a total of 900. The higher the score the better it is 
  • Once you calculate your score, you’ll get actionable next steps to improve your score and enhance your overall portfolio health

How is the score calculated?

The Investment Score calculation is based on a well-researched investment approach, known as the core-satellite approach, which involves dividing the portfolio into core-stable assets, slow-moving satellites – steady assets and fast-moving satellites – high-growth asset classes.

For instance, ​the stable portion can consist of low-risk assets like short-term debt funds, asset allocation-based smallcases etc. which provide stable returns. Steady assets can include medium volatile assets like largecap-focused mutual funds and smallcases which can provide higher returns than core assets but are also more volatile than core assets. High-growth assets can consist of mid & small-cap focused mutual funds and smallcases, which have the potential to provide higher returns but are more volatile and risky than steady assets. 

Keeping this strategy in mind, your Stocks/ETFs, Mutual Funds and smallcases are divided into 3 categories based on their volatility: Stable Assets, Steady Assets and High Growth Assets. 

TypeVolatility Label
Core – Stable AssetsLow
Slow Moving Satellites – Steady AssetsMedium
Fast Moving Satellites – High Growth AssetsHigh

Now, let’s delve into the specifics of how the Investment Score is calculated. 

  • For checking your portfolio diversification, deviation from the ideal ranges of stable, steady and high-growth assets are calculated. The lower the deviation from the ideal ranges, the higher the score and vice versa.
  • Your investing discipline is checked and identified using SIPs and rebalance updates
    • If you haven’t set up SIPs for your non-core Mutual Funds and smallcases or have been missing your SIP instalments, your score may incur a penalty.
    • Another factor for recognising your investing discipline is determining if you have followed the original investment strategy. Thus, if you have not applied the rebalance update issued by the creator of your smallcase for a considerable time, your score might take a dip.

Who calculates and maintains the Investment Score?

  • Windmill Capital – a wholly owned subsidiary of smallcase and a SEBI registered research analyst calculates and maintains your investment score.
  • You can also access a detailed report on your investment score, issued by Windmill Capital on the smallcase app. The report breaks down your investment score into individual components and provides the necessary insights and disclosures.

Understanding your score

A high score indicates that your Mutual Funds, Stocks/ETFs and smallcases are close to the ideal proportion of stable, steady, and high-growth assets. If you’ve initiated SIPs and consistently executed them, along with regularly checking rebalance updates on your smallcases (if applicable), you’re likely to have a higher score.

On the other hand, a low score may suggest a need for adjustments. It could mean insufficient exposure to stable and steady assets, a lack of SIPs in your Mutual Funds/smallcases, or not reviewing rebalance updates for more than 1 month on your smallcases (if applicable).
