Large cap mutual funds are relatively low risk equity mutual funds that invest at least 80% of the corpus in companies that rank top 100 in terms of market capitalisation which have the potential to offer good returns in the future with lower risk. These companies owing to their large capital are likely to pay off debt on time, withstand the market turmoil and have a good debt-to-equity ratio. They are big companies that generate income from various channels, such that there is not a total burnout due to the failure of one or more sources of revenue. Due to a proven record of large-cap funds regarding good management, timely distribution of dividends, and good balance sheet, they are more stable and hence are highly liquid.
