What is a Multi-cap fund?

The economy today is on a path to recovery – with growth estimates for FY 22 pegged at 12.50%1. An accommodative monetary policy, numerous growth stimulating policy and fiscal measures, increase in foreign inflows – are some of the few pre-cursors paving the way for a broad-based growth in the country. This is likely to bring growth opportunities across the board and across all market caps. The National Stock Exchange (NSE) in India, itself houses the stocks of over 1900 companies1. The top 100 being segmented into large cap, the next 150 being mid-cap and the balance being small cap.

How can an investor effectively choose from such a vast universe of stocks? With the large expected to become larger, and the mid and small expected to benefit from economic recovery and growth stimulus – how can an investor suitably capitalise on diverse investing opportunities?

A multi-cap fund can be the answer for investors here. A multi cap fund is an equity oriented mutual fund scheme that invests across market capitalisations – with a minimum of 25% portfolio allocation each to large, mid and small caps. A multi-cap fund looks to select the ‘best from the best’ and provide investors with a diverse portfolio of growth-oriented stocks.
