ATLANTA, March 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- RidgeWorth Investments announced today that it has re-launched its award-winning(1) "Add Midcap" campaign to demonstrate the value of mid-cap investing. The updated white paper, entitled "Why Mid-Cap?", reviews historical performance, evaluates current conditions that favor mid-caps, analyzes the performance of mid-caps during market and economic cycles and details why mid-cap stocks should be an important part of investors' allocations.
In support of the campaign, RidgeWorth's addmidcap.com microsite helps advisors easily demonstrate to their clients how mid-caps have performed relative to large and small caps over the past 30+ years. The interactive tool lets users pick a specific date range to compare mid-caps to other cap sizes, or pick a specific time period (e.g. 10 years) with the ability to drag it through the entire 30-year period to see how different cap sizes have done over every specific time period since 1979.
"Our goal is to deliver relevant and timely thought-leadership and investment insight to advisors," said Jim Stueve, President of RidgeWorth Investments. "The Add Midcap campaign is a continuation of our strategy to provide advisors with our 'individual insight' via minimally-branded educational resources and tools that help them add value for their clients."

Mutual fund investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Mid capitalization funds typically carry additional risks since smaller companies generally have a higher risk of failure. Equity securities (stocks) are more volatile and carry more risk than other forms of investments, including investments in high grade fixed income securities.
