My name is Saurabh Singhal i am working in MNC company and my age is 23 yrs. My Monthly hand on salary is 20000. I had already invested (1000rs) in UTI mutual fund (UTI Oppurtinities Fund-Growth Plan). Also I have taken a LIC (Jeevan Anand Plan) of 3 lacs. I have also a term insurance of Rs 20 lacs. My current saving in bank is approximately 50,000. I am also investing regulary Rs 1000 in my PPF account.

Now from onwards, i want to invest 2000 Rs as a sip for a long period. Could you please help me find a suitable fund for me. My personal choices are:

SBI Emerging

ICICI Discovery

HDFC Prudence Growth

Please suggest.

    among the three, go for ICICI Pru Discovery.

  2. Dear Saurabh, do you really need term cover at this age? Why are you investing on mly basis into PF & not lump sum say 10 or 15K?

    Please clarify.



  3. The first question to ask yourself is:

    Why are you investing?
    When do you need the money?
    What are your return expectations.

    MF choices is secondary.

    Because: For period of 10 years above, ANY large cap fund has given returns well above average inflation. Which is the central reason for investing in equities.
