Nifty Midcap 50 Index

The NIFTY Midcap 50 Index consists of top 50 companies based on full market capitalization from NIFTY Midcap 150 index with preference given to those stocks on which derivative contracts are available on National Stock Exchange (NSE). The index is rebalanced on a semi-annual basis (March and September) using average data of the last six months, the company said in a statement.

Key highlights

The Axis NIFTY Midcap 50 Index Fund invests in 50 most liquid midcap stocks, giving preference for stocks where F&O contracts are traded on NSE.

It presents a diversified portfolio for investors that focuses on sustainability for picking stocks.

The rank of any F&O constituent in the NIFTY Midcap 150 Index based on full market capitalization is among the top NIFTY Midcap 30.

In case of any shortfall (in the event that F&O stocks are not available for inclusion in the index), securities with highest average daily turnover will be selected from top 30 non-F&O constituents in NIFTY Midcap 150 Index based on full market capitalization.

The Axis NIFTY Midcap 50 Index Fund follows a rule-based passive investing strategy that endeavours to deliver market-linked returns, it said. Investors can look to invest through various systematic options like SIPs, STP’s to adopt a more disciple approach or invest via lumpsum.

Chandresh Nigam, MD & CEO, Axis AMC said, “In the broader market, midcaps have consistently outperformed making them ideal for long term wealth creation. Along with an attractive entry point for long term investors, they also offer a favourable risk-reward quotient. The introduction of the Axis NIFTY Midcap 50 Index Fund, aligns with our belief of offering quality products to investors that suits their risk appetite. We believe it will be a notable addition to our portfolio of passive offerings.”
