Mid-Caps: Center of the Equity Universe

Although each asset class has its own features and risks, we believe that mid-cap equities present a strong opportunity in the equity market and deserve consideration for suitable investor portfolios. Mid-caps have performed relatively well over the past decade in a large-cap bull market, and they have provided strong relative annualized returns and risk-adjusted returns over the past 20 years, as well as earnings per share growth (Exhibit 1). Midsized companies have tended to have better access to capital, more diversified products and services, and an improved capital structure relative to smaller companies. Additionally, their flexibility enables them to adjust more quickly than larger companies to changing market conditions.
