What are Multi cap funds?

A Multi cap fund is an open ended equity scheme typically investing 65% of total assets in equity and equity related instruments. Multi cap funds can invest in stocks across market capitalization i.e. their portfolio comprises of large cap, small cap and mid cap stocks.

Why one should invest in Multi cap funds?

Multi cap funds have the flexibility to invest across market cap which enables the fund manager to tactically play on market valuations. For example in times where market is volatile the fund manager will increase portfolio exposure towards large cap stocks to limit downside.

As compared to pure mid cap/small cap funds, these funds are less risky and popular among investors who are less aggressive about returns.
