Investing in Large & Midcap Funds is an excellent choice for investors looking for diversification in large-cap stocks and mid-cap stocks through a single fund. Large-cap stocks are known to provide steady returns, while mid-cap stocks have the potential to generate high returns. A combination of these stocks in the portfolio can help you to earn optimal risk-adjusted returns.

Thus, the category is suitable for investors who prefer the stability of large-caps, but are willing to take slightly higher risks to boost their returns.

In the current market environment where the volatility has intensified, Large & Midcap Funds can prove to be resilient compared to riskier categories such as Midcap Funds and Small-cap Funds. Moreover, the category is well-placed to take advantage of a subsequent recovery and create wealth for investors over the long term.

Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund is the most popular scheme in the Large & Midcap Funds category that has rewarded its investors well, yet without taking unnecessary risk.

Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund is a Large & Midcap Fund that combines the stability of large caps along with the growth potential of select emerging mid-sized companies that have the potential to become future bluechips. The fund managers look for high growth-oriented stocks across the large-cap and mid-cap segments that are available at fair and attractive valuations. This approach has helped Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund establish itself in the Large & Midcap category and became popular among investors resulting in a massive growth in AUM. In order to put a check on capacity, the fund house suspended lump sum investments in the scheme since October 2016 (when its corpus was around Rs 3,000 crore) and has currently restricted fresh registrations via SIP to Rs 2,500 per month. The well-constructed portfolio has ensured that risk is kept well within limits without compromising on long-term wealth creation. Over the last 5-year period, Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund generated returns at a CAGR of 20.5%, thus outperforming the benchmark Nifty LargeMidcap 250 index by around 4 percentage points.
