Mid cap funds invest in mid-sized companies according to average market capitalisation (Rs. 500 crore to Rs. 10000 crore). Minimum investment in Equity & Equity-related instruments of Mid-Cap companies is 65% of total assets.
Are Mid-cap funds risky?
Mid-sized companies faster growth rates than large-caps, but are also more risky. Risk comes from being unable to maintain the high growth rates consistently and leverage taken to support such growth. As a result, they are also more risky and volatile than large cap funds.
However, as mid cap companies perform better during a bull run they deliver astonishing returns, sometimes even outperforming large cap funds.
