    Hi Ashal/Sharad,

    Objective of this SIP investment is my niece marriage in next 6-8 years.

    Apart from this i would be investing 25-30K monthly in equity too for next 3 years , This objective of this investment would be starting my business in 5 years.

    Hi Manish,

    Your objective at the end of 5-6 years might help in defining the asset allocation across debt/equity schemes.

    Then we can help in specific fund selection.


  3. Dear Manish, is there any goal for your invest to reach after 8-9 years or you are investing just for sake of it. Please clarify.
