Large-cap is recommended for conservative equity investors, as this scheme invests in very large companies with very lesser volatility and highly stable than any other equity scheme. These investments have a horizon of five to seven years.

Large and mid-cap schemes are considered very risky as investors have to mandatory invest 35% of their corpus in mid-cap stocks. This investment is very very risky and highly volatile. It’s because of these features, this scheme is generally recommended to aggressive investors with a longer horizon investment period of seven to 10 years.
