The objective is to ensure that investors can easily compare products and evaluate the various options available before investing in the scheme.

SEBI has prescribed a clear classification of what is Large Cap, Mid Cap, and Small Cap: Market Capitalization Details Large Cap Company, 1st to 100th Company in terms of absolute market capitalization Mid Cap Company, 101st to 250th in terms of absolute market capitalization Company Small cap company 251st company ahead in terms of absolute market capitalization

Large-cap equity funds are those where the fund is invested in a large proportion of with companies, a large market capitalization. The companies that have invested are essentially large companies with large businesses and large manpower.

Like, Unilever, ITC, SBI, ICICI Bank, etc., are large-cap companies. Large-cap funds invest in firms (or companies) that have the potential for consistent growth and profits year after year, providing investors with stability over a period of time. These stocks give stable returns over a long period of time. As per SEBI, exposure to large-cap stocks should be a minimum of 80 percent of the total assets of the scheme.

2. Mid Cap Funds

Mid-cap funds or mid-cap mutual funds invest in mid-sized companies. These are mid-sized corporates that deal with large and small-cap stocks. There are various definitions of Midcap in the market, maybe a company that has a market capitalization of INR 50 bn to INR 200 bn, others may define it differently. According to SEBI, 101st to 250th companies in terms of absolute market capitalization are mid-cap companies.

From the investor’s point of view, the investment period of mid-caps should be much longer than that of large-caps due to the higher volatility (or volatility) in the prices of shares. The scheme will invest 65 percent of its total assets in mid-cap stocks.

3. Large and Mid Cap Funds

SEBI has introduced a combo of large and mid-cap funds, which means these are schemes that invest in large and mid-cap stocks. Here, the fund will invest a minimum of 35 percent each in mid and large-cap stocks.

4. Small Cap Funds

Take exposure at the lowest end of the market capitalization. Small-cap companies include startups or firms that are in their early stages of growth with small revenues. Small-caps have a great potential for price discovery and can generate good returns.

However, given the small size, the risks are high, so small-cap investment periods are expected to be the longest. As per SEBI, the portfolio should hold at least 65 percent of its total assets in small-cap stocks.

5. Diversified Funds

Invest across market capitalization, ie essentially large-cap, mid-cap, and small-cap. They usually invest 40–60% in large-cap stocks, 10–40% in mid-cap stocks, and around 10% in small-cap stocks. Sometimes, there may be little or no exposure to small caps.

While diversified equity funds or multi-cap funds invest across market capitalization, equity risks still remain in the investment. As per SEBI norms, a minimum of 65 percent of its total assets should be allocated to equities.

6. Sector Fund and Thematic Equity Fund

A sector fund is an equity scheme that invests in the shares of companies that trade in a particular sector or industry, for example, a pharma fund will invest only in pharmaceutical companies. Thematic Money can be in a broad area, for example, media and entertainment have a very narrow focus.

In this theme, Fund Vs. Can invest in different companies in publishing, online, media, or broadcasting. The risk is highest with thematic funds as there is virtually little diversification. At least 80 percent of the total assets of these schemes will be invested in a particular sector or subject.

These are equity mutual funds that save you tax as a qualified tax exemption under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act. They offer twin benefits like capital benefits and tax benefits. ELSS plans come with a lock-in period of three years. A minimum of 80 percent of your total assets have to be invested in equities.

8. Dividend Yield Fund

Dividend yield funds are those where a fund manager designs the fund portfolio as per the dividend yield strategy. This scheme is preferred by investors who like the idea of ​​regular income as well as capital appreciation.

This fund invests in companies that offer a high dividend yield strategy. The objective of this fund is to buy good underlying businesses that pay regular dividends at attractive valuations. The scheme will invest a minimum of 65 percent of its total assets in equities but in dividend-paying stocks.

9. Value Funds

Invest in companies that have fallen out of favor but have sound principles. The idea behind this is to select a stock that appears to be underperforming in the market. A value investor looks out for bargains and chooses investments, based on factors such as low price-earnings, net current assets, and sales.

10. Taking a contrasting view on parity against Contra Fund funds.

This is against the wind-like investing style. The fund manager picks the underperforming stocks over a period of time, which perform well in the long run at cheaper valuations. The idea here is to buy the asset at a price below its fundamental value in the long run.

This is done with the belief that the assets will stabilize and return to their true value in the long term. Value/Contra will invest at least 65 percent of its total assets in equities, but a mutual fund house can offer either a value fund or a contrast fund, but not both.

11. Focused Funds have a mix of equity funds, i.e. Large, mid, small, or multi-cap stocks, but have a limited number of stocks. As per SEBI, a focus fund can have a maximum of 30 stocks. These funds are allocated their holdings among a limited number of carefully researched securities. Focused funds can invest at least 65 percent of their total assets in equities.
