  3. Dear Srinivas, what’s your take on dear Pattu’s suggestion of hiring a paid Financial planner for yourself? Why I’m asking? You put a lot of info from which, a lot of cross suggestions may come to you. How ‘ll you decide to move on? Regarding the taking help from Jagoinvestors, well my dear friend, just by reading past discussions, you could help yourself.

    Please think over it.

      Hi Ashal,
      Taking paid financial planner is not a bad idea, but definitely prior to that as suggested I will spend some time reading past discussions to see how much I can help myself. I will come up with with a list and you may extend your expert advise on that. Thank you very much for giving your valuable time.

    Hi Indrajit,
    Thanks for your response and suggestions. Based on your recommendations. please suggest if following steps will help.

    1. Stop all LICs and Ulips
    2. Quit unwanted MFs
    3. Take term plan of 50L each for me and wife from Aegon Religer iTerm plans
    4. Continue with only Franklin Bluechip & Hdfc Top 200 and Hdfc Prudence balance fund with 3000 pm instead of 1000 pm.

  7. Indrajit Ghosh says:

    As soon as possible stop those LIC n Ulip.
    Purchase a Term Plan of 1 crore for Both of you. And purchase adequate health insurance for your family.
    For MF investment you have made too much funds. Only two or three funds can serve your purpose.
    Franklin Bluechip & Hdfc Top 200 alone are quite good.
    Third you can add Hdfc Prudence as a balance fund.
    Cut down your investment to this. Quit all the thematic and sectoral and all other funds.

  8. Dear Srinivas,

    Your investments are in a mess. At 41 year you need professional help in tidying up your investments. Please consult a financial planner instead of seeking arbitrary generic advice in forums like this. A good financial planner will cost you only Rs. 15000. It is not much considering the premiums you are paying. A comprehensive financial plan will help you take control of your life. At you age you dont have time to make more mistake. Quick professional remedial action is needed.

    ps. As you yourself have noted term insurance health insurance a healthy emergency fund is very important before touching the above.
