Those, who can bear this pain, are the real winner in the long run. This fund is not suitable at all for risk-averse investors. Those who can bear the hardship of volatility and have necessary patience, Best Small Cap Mutual Fund| Reliance Small Cap Fund is the perfect choice for them.  As I mentioned earlier, I am fond of this fund very much for its characteristics and the ability to fight back and beat the standards.
