Asset consultants from some of the largest industry superannuation funds have a permanent allocation to small cap funds. The reason is they know that good investment managers have the ability to consistently generate strong returns and they also understand the characteristics of the small cap market. On the surface, if you look at the returns from the Small Ordinaries index relative to the ASX 100 index, the returns look poor over five or even 10 years. However, if you delve deeper into what has happened by looking at the composition of the index, a different story emerges. View the full ASX article here: (VIEW LINK)
