Assessing the performance of a mutual fund calls for evaluating the past returns, among other factors. Here we take a look at the returns given by some mid cap funds in the past three and five years.
A mid cap fund is the one which invests a minimum of 65 percent of total assets in mid-cap stocks. They are seen to offer greater growth potential to investors than large cap stocks, and are less volatile and risky than their small cap peers.
The top-performing mid cap funds delivered more than 20 percent return in the past three years. Edelweiss Mid Cap Fund (direct) gave a return of 20.86 percent, according to the AMFI (Association of Mutual Funds in India) data as on June 30, 2022.
