Sanjay Kumar KS: My aim of investment is wealth creation to meet goals such buying a holiday home, foreign travel and a hatchback car.

I am already investing Rs 60,000 per month towards PF and insurance, which would take care of my goals of child education and marriage.

Further, I am assured of a pension around Rs 1 lakh month on retirement.

I have about Rs 20,000 earmarked for SIPs and Rs 3,00,000 lumpsum amount for investing in MFs.

Since I have a secured investment, I can be overtly aggressive with this investment.

Kindly suggest me some high resolution/high return MF schemes.

I would like to have open-ended schemes for the lumpsum investment.
