Difference Between Flexi-cap & Multi-cap Fund

Back to all Infographics


In Nov’2020, ‘Flexi-cap’ was introduced as a new category under Equity Schemes and a difference was drawn between Flexi-cap & multi-schemes. While the name may suggest similar strategies, there are key differences between the categories that is imperative for investors to understand.

Key Features:

1. Multi-cap:

  • Mandatory minimum Investment: 25% in large-caps, 25% in mid-caps, 25% in small-caps
  • The Fund manager has limited flexibility (25%) to tilt allocation to particular market capitalization basis market condition
  • In general, Multi-caps are relatively riskier than Flexi-caps due to mandatory allocation to mid and small caps
  • Investors looking for broad exposure across market capitalization can evaluate Multi-cap funds

2. Flexi-cap Funds

  • Flexibility to invest across Market capitalization without any prescribed limits
  • Since there is no mandate to invest across Large, Mid and small-caps, the Fund manager has complete flexibility to tilt allocation to a particular market capitalization basis market condition
  • In general, Flexi-cap funds have higher allocation towards large-caps making it relatively less risky than Multi-cap funds
  • Investors looking for more large-cap tilted portfolio with tactical allocation towards mid & small-caps can evaluate Flexi-cap funds
