News - "Funds in Focus": small & mid cap funds
The focus of the latest guest contribution by Julius Baer[pdf] is on Swiss small & mid cap funds. Securities with a high market
capitalisation are called Blue Chips or large caps (with cap referring to capitalisation), medium-sized companies
as mid caps and small companies as small caps.
The article describes the differences between those classes and addresses the specific characteristics of Swiss
small & mid caps, also with regard to their historic performance. In addition, it presents a selection of
investment funds that cover these companies and can also be traded in the Sponsored Funds segment of the Swiss exchange.
