What are Large Cap Stocks?

Large cap stocks are stocks of those companies that have a market capitalisation of over Rs. 20,000 crore. This means these are exclusively those companies that have reached a certain level of revenue and wealth that allows them to preserve their market share, invest in R&D, and raise or borrow money with more ease than others. Sometimes these are not standalone companies, but a part of a larger conglomerate, which allows them to access certain markets and raw materials more easily.

People who are  risk-averse like to invest in large cap stocks more than small-cap or mid-cap stocks. This is because large cap companies are less likely to go bust than smaller companies.

Large cap stocks help investors avail growth opportunities with less risk than small-cap stocks.
