What is Bandhan Core Equity Fund?

Bandhan core equity fund is a type of equity mutual fund scheme that invests primarily in stocks of large cap and mid cap companies. Large and mid-cap companies are identified on the basis of market capitalisation and include the top 250 companies in the country. As per regulation, large and mid-cap funds have to invest at least 35% of their assets in large cap and mid cap stocks each. Thus, 70% of the fund's assets are mandated to be invested in equity and equity related securities of large cap and mid cap companies.

The relatively less volatile nature of large-cap funds, combined with the growth potential of mid-cap funds, makes these funds suitable for long-term wealth creation. Risk averse investors who wish to benefit from mid-cap stocks may consider investing in a core equity fund. Large cap and mid cap funds are relatively less volatile than pure mid-cap funds, but have more growth potential than large-cap funds in the long term.

Core equity funds that invest in large and mid-cap stocks allow the investor to diversify their investments as they are mandated to invest in two market capitalisations. Diversification of assets may potentially reduce risk.
