About this category

Mid-cap funds invest in stocks from the 101st to the 250th in terms of market capitalisation. As they invest in stocks of smaller companies, they tend to be volatile but can deliver very strong returns during market uptrends. The Nifty Midcap 100, Nifty Midcap 150 or the BSE Midcap can be used as benchmarks to measure performance.
