Mid Cap Fund

A Mid Cap Fund is a type of managed fund that invests in companies with a middle-ranged market capitalization. Mid cap equity funds tend to operate in stocks that fall between small-caps and large-caps. As a general guideline in the US mid-cap is judged to be between $2 billion and $10 billion, but this definition will change by location/market, and the fund's own definitions. The attraction of mid-cap stocks is that the businesses tend to still be in growth phase and thus tend to grow a little faster than large-caps, and may also be slightly less volatile than small-caps.

Synonyms: Mid Cap investor
