Mutual funds that invest in stocks are typically categorized as large-cap, mid-cap, or small-cap funds. A mutual fund that is described as a large-cap fund is usually invested mainly in large-cap stocks. However, it is important to understand that not all mutual funds remain true to their categorizations. A large-cap fund may also invest in small cap stocks and other riskier types of securities. When you buy a fund that is categorized as a large-cap fund, you may be buying some securities that aren’t large-cap stocks, thus introducing more risk to your portfolio than you intended.
