Investing in stocks with lower market capitalisation can promise substantial gains owing to their affordability, but it also carries inherent risks. Small-cap stocks often face challenges related to liquidity, leading to lower trading volumes compared to larger companies. Additionally, they may have less stringent financial reporting requirements and oversight, making them vulnerable to market manipulation and fraudulent activities.

These liquidity constraints and oversight issues contribute to increased volatility in small-cap stocks, posing higher risks for investors. To navigate these challenges effectively, thorough research and the implementation of robust risk management strategies are essential. By adopting these measures, investors can mitigate uncertainties associated with small-cap stocks and protect against potential losses.
