Raghav: Hi Nikunj, I’m turning 35 by this year end and investing in SIP's since last 2 years. I had to sell most of the SIP's last year to purchase a vehicle. Now I am investing below.
I want to build up minimum Rs 50 lakh for my child's higher education by 2035.W
Quant tax plan- 3000/month (4 months old)
Kotak tax plan-2000/month (4 month old)
Mirae asset tax saver fund- 1000/month (27 month old)
Parag Parikh tax saver fund- 2000/ month (1 month old)
Mirae asset tax saver fund- 1500/month(1month old).
Hello Raghav. Based on your requirements, the selected schemes are well aligned with the market. As your target amount is for over 10 years, I recommend you diversify by category.
Additionally, it is recommended that you increase your SIP to 14k in order to achieve a corpus of Rs 50 lakh. You may consider small-cap, mid-cap, and multi-cap funds for your increased SIP amount.
Vivek: My investments as per month
Parag Parikh flexi cap - 5k
Mirae Asset Tax Saver - 6k
ICICI liquid fund - 5k
SBI gold fund - 2k
Rd - 20k for 2 years
I earn around 80k per month.
Am planning to open sip of 10k in one small or mid cap for at least 3 years.
Please advice should i continue with this or do some changes. My age is 26 years.
Hello Vivek. Considering your age factor and requirement, I would advise you to reconsider ICICI liquid fund and start investing in Large & mid cap for the same AMC.
The rest of your portfolio report sounds good.
Additionally, you can consider midcap fund for your future investment.
Anonymous: Sir, I am a working professional with kids aged 1 and 5 year and want to set aside some amount right now (10-20 lakh) that could be used for their higher education and wedding.
What is best instrument among following where money might multiply fastest by the time of its utility: Equity MF Plots Any other scheme?
Hello Value Investor.
For the children's education and marriage, it is suggested you reconsider equity mutual funds.
Assuming your required goal is for 17 and 13 years. You may consider small-cap, mid-cap, flexi-cap and large-cap fund for your portfolio.
Additionally, you may start SIP with Rs 5k monthly.

Hello Value Investor.
I can see over diversification with your current investments with the SIP amount.
I would suggest that you concise your MF investments and reshuffle the portfolio.
Additionally, reconsider Aditya Birla Sun Life Tax Relief 96 Fund, Axis Long Term Equity Fund and SBI Focused Equity Fund for your portfolio.
You can achieve your target till retirement with your current SIP amount.
Debashish: I am investing Rs 2500 every month in SIP of SBI MF like Bluechip, banking and financial, gold fund and SBI equity savings with a target for 20 years. Completed 4 years. Shall I continue?
Your portfolio report sounds good. I can see that 100% of the investments are in SBI AMC. Hence, will suggest AMC-wise bifurcation for future investment.
You can reshuffle the current SIPs or start investing in AMCs like ICICI Pru, Nippon, Parag Parikh, etc. AMC diversification is also required in your portfolio.
