The multi cap ETFs include instruments with various capitalization sizes (large cap, mid-cap and small-cap stocks). Such diversification helps if one of the segment performs better than the others. The fluctuations of those ETFs are lower than in case of ETFs that focus only on one specific capitalization stocks. Investing in the multi-cap ETFs may be associated with different levels of risk depending on the stocks that are put into the fund. Nevertheless, such ETFs are more suitable for less advances investors - even though some stocks of the Exchange-Traded Fund may temporarily loss (e.g. large caps), the other components (e.g. small caps) may offset the loss and produce high returns.
