The growth story of BSE SME platform that generated magnificent returns in last one year

BSE SME IPO Index has given a massive return of over 255% to the investors in the past 1 year, beating BSE Smallcap Index with a large periphery, which has given a return of over 95% during  the same period.

Launched in 2012, the BSE SME platform has listed 343 SMEs till date, out of which 112 have migrated to the BSE main board. A total of over Rs. 3,500 crore has been raised by SME Companies from the BSE SME platform, providing them with required equity financing opportunities to grow their businesses.

The contribution of MSMEs in the development of the Indian economy has been significant, both in terms of contribution to the GDP and in the creation of employment opportunities. Over 110 million Indians were employed in micro, small or medium businesses across India in the financial year 2020. 

Though challenges with liquidity have played a major role in hindering the growth of MSMEs, BSE has been making strides in ensuring public equity for SMEs by getting them listed on its BSE SME platform.

Mr. Warren Buffet’s quote “Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago” rightly acknowledges the fact that if one stays invested in the equity markets for long term, the investment is likely to generate magnificent returns.
