Large & Mid Cap Funds – September 2022

Before I start off on any analysis in this segment, even at the cost of a repetitive bore I will put forth this disclaimer. All fund schemes are taken as direct. However, even if you are a direct investor, hire a financial advisor that you trust who can guide with investments. Pay for your advice.

Fund category definition: Funds with minimum 35% portfolio allocation to Large Cap (top 100 by market cap size) stocks and 35% allocation to Mid Cap (101-250 by market cap size) stocks. Remaining 30% is as per fund management.

Benchmark: Nifty LargeMid Cap 250 TRI with a change of -2.69% in September 2022 and a one-year return of 1.39%.

All data as on: 30th September, 2022



In terms of ranking, HDFC has inched up ahead of DSP Equity Opportunities to settle at sixth spot.

HDFC has reduced it’s expense ratio by 4 bps yet maintaining the tag of most expensive fund with a 1.19% cost.

Canara Robeco has trimmed it’s portfolio by 5 stocks to go down to a 54-holding portfolio.

When it comes to performance, it’s a fairly decent report card with only Mirae and Axis having underperformed the benchmark in September. That record is overturned when it comes to the 1-year performance with a more than half of six reds.

Market Cap Allocation


SBI has increased it’s Mid Cap allocation by about 2.35%, which also shows in the total equity exposure going up.

None of the other funds have a substantial enough shift worth mentioning.
