In a press release issued by the company, Dilip Mandal, MD and CEO, IDBI MF, said: “IDBI Mutual Fund has always designed products with the objective of fulfilling the needs of its investors. With the fiscal budget due next month and investor sentiment intact in the Indian economy, we feel IDBI Midcap Fund is well-timed to cater to those investors who wish to take advantage of opportunities in the midcap space of the equity market. Our research and fund management will be dedicatedly focusing on midcap stocks that can reap maximum benefit of the likely economic recovery and superior return ratios.”
