    Hi Experts, I want to start a SIP for long term ( Say 10 yr).I already have a SIP in DSP-BR India TIGER – RP (G) since Jan 2010 which ( Net gain as of today is – -6.78% ). I also have invested a small lump sum amount in HDFC Top 200 Fund (G) ( Net gain as of today 14.22%) and Reliance Diver. Power – RP (G)since 2010 ( Net gain -27.23%%). Could you please suggest me one good MF to start the SIP for 10 Year? One more thing , I realized that DSP-BR India TIGER is not doing well and same is applicable to Reliance Power. Should I redeem/switch these funds. I invested in these MFs as my long term investment. Thanks alot in advance.

    1. Dear premneedhelp, out of the 3 funds you are investing in as of now, DSP TIGER & Rel. Div. Power are sectoral funds & these should be in your core portfolio.

      My take ‘ll be to STOP SIP in DSP TIGER & Rel. Div. Power & divert the amount into Quantum Long Term Eq. fund.

    a simple advice would be withdraw all those porfolio if it has free of lock in period and invest into fund like HDFC Top 200

    You will loose out on opportunity cost if you wait on until you get back what you paid.

    Birla Sun Life Midcap i am not sure of its performance ,,you might want to take a look at IDFC Premier Equity A or Birla Sunlife Dividend Yield Plus for mid cap.

    HDFC top 200 is excellent fund and you can continue on it
