OmniScience Capital introduces a New Asset Class Beyond Mutual Funds on the smallcase platform

OmniScience smallcases bring the exclusive HNI strategies based on Scientific Investing to All


Mumbai, Jan 21, 2020: OmniScience Capital, a SEBI-registered Investment Adviser, has partnered with smallcase, a fintech investment platform, to bring a new asset class OmniScience smallcase. OmniScience smallcases are based on its proprietary Scientific Investing framewok which aims to “Enhance Safety, Enhance Returns”.

Until now, OmniScience’s long-only, PMS/AIF-style, strategies were exclusively available to HNI (High Net Worth Investors) due to high minimum ticket sizes required for advising their portfolios. With the highly sophisticated, fintech capabilities of the smallcase platform it is now possible to make those strategies accessible to all investors at much lower ticket sizes, starting at INR 5000/- in a fully compliant manner and with zero paperwork.

While the core strategies of OmniScience Capital are now available at ticket sizes below INR 100,000/-, many more thematic ideas and SIP (systematic investment plan) portfolios are available to all investors. These strategies are developed and advised by OmniScience Investment Adviser, the advisory division of OmniScience Capital registered with SEBI.

“OmniScience smallcases are a new asset class beyond mutual funds. The reason I call it a new asset class is these baskets of stocks, except for our core strategies and some thematics, are much more concentrated than a portfolio from a typical mutual fund, PMS (Portfolio Management Services), AIF (Alternative Investment Funds) or PAS (Portfolio Advisory Services). This makes it a higher-risk, higher-reward asset class compared to mutual funds and PMSes while providing much more safety compared to investing in single stocks. The OmniScience smallcases provide exposure to multiple stocks simultaneously benefiting from below-the-radar, innovative, disruptive themes with exponential growth opportunities, which are available at significant discount to their intrinsic values.”, said Dr. Vikas V Gupta, CEO & Chief Investment Strategist, OmniScience Capital.

OmniScience smallcases allow investors to configure their portfolios with several interesting investment themes as satellite allocations besides their core portfolio allocations. OmniScience smallcases can also be used for SIP (Systematic Investment Plan) allocations to allow the investor portfolios to benefit from market fluctuations.

“We are glad to launch OmniScience strategies on the smallcase platform. This launch will allow two new group of investors to have access to these exclusive strategies. One the investors with small investment corpuses who could not invest earlier in the Scientific Investing strategies of OmniScience Capital because of the large minimum ticket sizes. The second group is the HNI investors who want to use their existing broking and demat accounts and want a zero-paperwork, fully online experience. We think this will make the experience of our customers and partners much more richer in all senses of the term.”, said Ashwini Shami, EVP & Portfolio Manager, OmniScience Capital.

“smallcase is a brilliant platform which makes the whole ecosystem of investors, brokers, advisors and distributors frictionless and efficient. The best part is that it is fully compliant with the latest SEBI guidelines and regulations. We plan to continue growing our products and investor engagement with this platform.”, said Dr. Gupta.
