    Firstly, your goal arrive in the years which u mentioned. Its nt necessary to invest in d same funds for so many years. So, try investing in mfs for 3 years post which you can change the funds depending on the innovation which happens at that point in time.

    Remember each goal has a behavior and your selection of funds should be according to that. The same fund may not be the answer to every goal.

    Do consult a planner and implement.

  3. Dear Himanshu, Please invest directly with the MFs of your choice. if I’m in your place, I w’d start my journey with only 2 funds.

    1. Franklin India Blue Chip
    2. Quantum Long Term Eq.

    Please invest all the different amounts equally into these funds only.
