Median Market Cap

Updated on March 11, 2023

Median Market Cap or Median Market Capitalisation refers to the average market capitalization of shares in the portfolio of a mutual fund. It is an indicator of the size of companies in which a fund invests. Median means the middle point and the median market Cap means the midpoint of market capitalization (market price x outstanding shares) of a fund’s stocks, calculated by proportionate weightage of the fund’s assets invested in each stock. Thus stocks representing half of the fund’s assets will have market capitalizations above the median, and the rest will be below the median.
