Expert Portfolios are a premium version of smallcases created by SEBI-registered professionals who have established themselves in the industry over the years. Considering the expertise and research gone in creating these baskets, a nominal subscription fee is charged to invest in these smallcases.
smallcase investments are essentially investments in a group of stocks. In your Dhan portfolio, these appear at two places:
  • They reflect in the Custom Portfolio section in your Dhan App. Here the name of the smallcase that you have invested in will be visible.
  • The individual stocks/ETFs which form that particular smallcase also reflect in your Dhan holdings as standalone stock/ETF holdings.

It is possible that you may have sold the individual scrips contained in a smallcase, directly from your Dhan portfolio & the smallcase portal may continue to reflect that investment as part of the respective basket.

In such cases, there will be a mismatch between the investments reflecting in Dhan portfolio and the smallcase portal.

To correct this, you may login to the smallcase portal with your Dhan credentials and click on the option “reconciliation”. This will ensure that smallcase and Dhan investments are synced.
smallcase shows bonus shares automatically on effective date. However, on Dhan these shares will reflect in your portfolio only after the bonus shares are deposited in your demat account by CDSL. We request you to wait for 2-3 working days for the bonus shares to reflect in your Dhan account.
