Flexi-cap funds are dynamic and open-ended mutual funds whose fund managers invest in equity funds of different market capitalizations. These can be small, mid, or large caps. The funds are ideal for those investors who want to appreciate their money over a period of five years or more. These funds yield returns that trump inflation and are better than the interest from fixed income instruments. Flexi caps also shield the investor from market jitters.
