3 Best Large-Cap Growth Mutual Funds To Buy Now

Large-cap growth mutual funds provide excellent opportunities to investors who choose long-term capital appreciation over dividend payouts and are also interested in steady returns. Funds having significant exposure to growth securities are believed to provide higher returns. This is because growth stocks are high quality stocks with the potential for revenue and earnings growth at a rate faster than the industry average. Though growth funds may experience more fluctuations than the other fund classes, these are suitable for investors with a higher risk tolerance and the willingness to park funds for the longer term.

Separately, large-cap mutual funds focus on acquiring securities of companies having market capitalization of more than $10 billion. Large-cap funds are ideal for investors seeking high returns that come with lower risk than the small-cap and mid-cap funds.
