    Hi Jinesh,

    HDFC Top 200 has beaten its benchmark index 15 out of 18 years of its existence. This is according to the latest review by Outlook Money. I would suggest that you try and hold onto it for another 6 months as the Fund Mangers claim that there has been a reshuffle in the portfolio.

    If you are skeptical that the fund would improve in the near future then I would suggest the following based on your portfolio. You currently hold 3 Large cap funds, 1 Balanced fund and 1 Long Term Debt Fund.

    If you would like to invest for a period of more than 5 years then Mid-Cap Funds are an attractive option right now. Since the valuations of Mid Cap Funds are low it is a good time to enter and stay invested for a period of 5 years or more. This would also help you diversify your portfolio. There are quite a few Mid-Cap funds that are performing well but as you require an alternative I would suggest you go for HDFC Mid Cap Opportunities Fund.

    Regarding SBI Dynamic Bonds you will have to wait for a period of 1 – 2 years to see good returns. However, if you are looking to get returns in a short span of time (6 months to 1 year) then you can choose Tempelton India Ultra Short Bond Fund. Given below is a recent review of the fund posted in the FundsIndia blog.
