 pl advice on consolidation .

Omkeshwar Singh: Too many funds, almost all stocks available are there in this combined portfolio. Overdiversification is killing the performance; at present markets are high, so it would not have impacted, however in the downturn it will underperform hugely.

Kindly break the portfolio person wise along with age of the person and share details

Equity / Hybrid Schemes and Couple of Debt funds should be sufficient for each person.

Devaki Shah: My Age is 40 and my salry is 27000/- pm and saving per month is hardly 6000-7000.

I want monthly 20000/- something monthly income after 55 age. Currently, I am investing in following funds started just last month

1. HDFC Low Duration ( G) Rs. 2000

2. ICICI Pru Asset Alloc ( G) Rs. 2000

3. Mirae Asset Midcap (G) Rs 2000/-

Kindly suggest should i continue or change anything.

Omkeshwar Singh: To create corpus better invest in equity oriented funds and then post 15 years switch them to debt and hybrid – balanced advantage

Rs 6000 monthly investment can create a corpus of Rs 33 lakh to Rs 35 lakh; below schemes can be considered: Rs. 2000 each for 15 years

a)   UTI Flexi Cap – Growth

b)  Parag Parikh Flexi- Cap Growth

c)   DSP Mid Cap Fund – Growth

Post 15 years when you are 55, shift the above investment to (in equal proportion i.e. Rs. 11 to 12 lakh)

1) Aditya Birla Corporate Bond fund – Growth

 2) HDFC Banking and PSU fund – Growth

3) ICICI Pru Balanced Advantage fund - Growth

Then do a SWP of Rs. 6700 for each of the 3 funds for monthly Rs. 20000 requirements

Shailesh Jain: I have below investment in MFs and I want to accumulate 3 crore by 2030, I want to invest 50K monthly (currently 27500 SIP and rest lump sum invest in other funds based on condition).

Please suggest if to continue or shift to other options. Also any new funds to add to have aggressively diversified portfolio.

Omkeshwar Singh: Rs 1,20,000 investment in equity oriented funds per month is required to create a corpus of Rs 3 cr in 10 years.

Both schemes of Axis and Mirae along with Kotak Nasdaq are good schemes to be continued

Debt funds will not be able to generate the kind of returns required to achieve the corpus

HrushikeshPatnaik: I have been investing in MF since last 5 years with a diversified portfolio.

For faster growth, I am interested in topping-up SIPs in good performing funds, but understood that I can't top-up SIPs in already running funds. This has to be by cancelling current SIPs and starting a fresh with top-up instruction. I am not comfortable with this idea as I want to create a long term portfolio and starting afresh will impact growth.

Alternate way is to invest lump sums every month through "Additional purchase" request which I am OK with. 

Wondering if this is ok if I keep adding additional sum every month through Lump sums along with SIPs in the same funds and in the same folio? Please advice.

Omkeshwar Singh: There are options available for top up with AMCs, and it happens automatically without any need to cancel existing schemes and start afresh.

However most of the digital platforms don’t have this option, therefore, if you are comfortable, you may do additional purchases per month in the SIP schemes as lumpsum.

ashren grover: I have been investing in various mutual funds over last few years. I am currently 42 and plan to continue investing for next 10-15 years minimum to create substantial corpus for child's future and retired life. Below is my portfolio, please suggest further:

1 Axis Bluechip Growth 1,72,491 1,70,996 7,500
2 Aditya Birla Sunlife Frontline Equity 4,09,998 6,09,368 5,000
3 HDFC Mid Cap Opportunities 5,49,998 8,57,188 5,000
4 Kota Flexi Cap Regular Plan Growth 6,34,995 9,45,700 5,000
5 Kotak Gold Regular Growth 34,998 32,944 10,000

Omkeshwar Singh: Continue with 1; rest need change

Change 2 to Parag Parikh Flexi -Cap – Growth

Change 3 to DSP Mid Cap – Growth

Change 4 to UTI Flexi Cap – Growth

Change 5 to Axis ESG Fund – Growth
