Whether this investment will suffice for that.

Ravi Shyam: I need your guidance if I am going in the right direction.

I have invested sum of 15 lakh total in Edelweiss small cap, PGIM small cap, Mirae asset midcap, Mirae asset banking and financial services, BOI Axa small cap, Kotak Mahindra small cap, quant small cap, icici prudential technology funds, Canara rebecco small cap, Motila Oswal Nasdaq 100 FOF and kotak Mahindra FOF.

My holding time for these will be 10yrs.

Will my corpus be 45 lakh after 10 years?

Omkeshwar Singh: Too many small caps, however, if you have the risk appetite then no issues.

Yes, Rs 15 lakh can become Rs 45 lakh in 10 years, however there will be high volatility as majority of your investment is in small caps.
