    If you are looking for funds/investment vehicles, in which the value of the investment does not / cannot “ever” go down below the actual cost value. Then, you CANNOT:
    – invest in any mutual fund, whether equity/debt.
    – invest in any stock/share.
    – invest in Ulip / traditional insurance-cum-savings plan.
    – Real estate.

    What you have got left is:
    1. Bank FDs.
    2. PPF / NSC
    3. Post Office Schemes.
    BUT, the problem in all these schemes will be that you will bear the inflation risk. And your actual purchasing power will decrease.

    In the end, it is your decision.

    By the way, all 3 of your funds are well managed funds. And you should continue with these. You should also stop looking at the fund value every day!!

    I guess forum members can answer in a better way if you mention following things like
    1. your investment goal and tenure for the investment
    2. your thought process behind selecting the above funds
    3. your returns expectation and your benchmark to evaluate your fund performance
