Who should invest in Hdfc Multi Cap Fund?

Mutual fund investments are founded on the notion of diversification. As an added bonus, this fund spreads its investments over a wide range of market caps. If you’re looking for a way to diversify across market capitalisation without buying a variety of different funds, this one could work for you. Investors with a medium to long-term (5-7+ years) investment horizon who are seeking disciplined exposure to large, mid, and small-cap stocks should consider investing in the HDFC Multi Cap Fund.

What are the benefits of investing in the Hdfc Multi Cap Fund?

Multicap funds have a greater risk-reward profile than flexicap and big & midcap funds. The Scheme will make investments without favouring any one investment strategy and will attempt to capitalise on possibilities presented by growth, value, and turnaround firms.


Multi-cap funds provide a diverse portfolio since they invest in businesses of different sizes and industries. The risk is reduced for you with this diversified strategy. This is because various market segments or sectors may perform differently at any one moment, and the spreading out of assets over numerous segments keeps risk under control.

Exposure to all important economic sectors:

You have exposure to all of the important sectors and firms within them that are advancing the Indian economy since these funds don’t limit themselves to a certain market size or industry. This ensures that you take advantage of all opportunities presented by the Indian market.

Optimal portfolio given the state of the market:

HDFC Multi Cap Fund can adapt to changing market conditions by rebalancing its portfolios’ emphasis between big, mid, and small caps as needed. If the fund manager believes that small and midcap companies are becoming expensive and that the market is about to see significant growth in that segment, he or she may decide to shift to a more protective large cap allocation.
