By investing in mid cap funds, investors may enjoy the following benefits as well:
Mid cap funds provide an able alternative for investors to derive benefit from mid-cap stocks over the long term. Investors should however note that since these tend to be riskier than the large caps, they should limit their exposure to this category. Further, investors would be better off investing in equity mutual funds through the systematic investment plans (SIP) route over the long term. Not only does it inculcates discipline in investing, but also reduces the volatility associated with the markets, which is also called rupee cost averaging. Another fallacy that investors follow is to look at the recent performance of funds before investing. It is important that investors look at the long term performance of the scheme versus the benchmark and peers, and the portfolio trends of the scheme. Further, track and review your investments post investing.
