However, we saw that it recovered well after it had slumped to 26,000 something in March for investors. Although, most of the recovery is in large cap and benchmark indices, this is the trend. First the improvement is in large cap funds and then it percolates in mid and small caps. I think the stock rally would be broader in the coming time."
