Mid cap mutual funds invest in medium-size companies. A middle capitalization mutual fund invests mostly in medium-size companies.

While the definition of “medium-size company” varies, most professionals define it as a company with a market capitalization from $2 billion to $10 billion. Companies you may have heard of within this size range are Eaton Vance, Guess, and others.
