SCIF Factset Analytics Insight
SCIF provides a unique definition of the Indian small-cap space, diverging considerably from our MSCI benchmark. Utlilzing a cap-weighted index, and tilting heavily toward micro-cap stocks, SCIF has quite a bit more risk than you'd get with more neutral exposure. However, SCIF does offer solid liquidity for Indian small-caps. It trades in decent volumes each day, and while spreads are pretty wide compared to most funds, they're in-line with expectations for a small-cap emerging market fund. To that point, larger investors will find that underlying liquidity is poor and dealing in creation units can cause the underlying market to shift. While SCIF tracks its index well, it also features one of the higher expense ratios in the segment, so investors can expect steep, if steady, holding costs.
