Investing in shares of small companies with low market capitalisation presents the potential for significant gains owing to their lower stock prices. However, this investment avenue comes with notable risks. Such stocks often suffer from limited liquidity, leading to fewer transactions compared to larger counterparts. Moreover, they typically lack the stringent financial reporting and oversight seen in larger corporations, rendering them susceptible to price manipulation and fraudulent activities.

Given their restricted liquidity and diminished oversight, stocks of small companies frequently exhibit heightened volatility, amplifying risks for investors. Therefore, conducting thorough research and implementing careful risk management strategies are imperative to navigate the uncertainties associated with these stocks and mitigate potential losses.
