    Mid cap segment has suffered a lot in the last one and a half years. That is reflecting on the performance of many mid cap mutual funds, too. However, Aditya Birla Sun Life Midcap Fund has been underperforming its benchmark in the one-, three-, and five-year horizons. It has also failed to beat its category average in these periods.

    Mid cap mutual funds are meant for aggressive investors with a very large risk appetite and stomach for volatility. These schemes are extremely risky, and they can be very volatile periodically. You should make sure that you have adequate risk to invest in these schemes. Also, you should choose a mid cap scheme with a consistent performance record to invest.
