Dear Sir,

I’ve been following your blog for some time now & I’m really impressed. I’ve deceided to invest via SIP into mutual funds & before that I would like to run it by you.

I’m 25 with annual income  3 lakhs p.a. I’ve planned on investing 6000 p.m. in mutual funds via SIP with the following mutual funds with growth option:

DSPBR top 100 equity REG  , HDFC Equity G, HDFC Prudence, IDFC GSF PF plan B, Templeton India Low duration, UTI Ctrs 81, UTI opportunities respetively in the following ratio 9:8:10:10:5:9:9. 

My risk appetite is moderate & I’m looking for long term investment.

Do I need to furthur streamline the number of funds from this list? Or is this selection fine with my risk appetite.
Is payment by growth scheme fine for these funds??

  1. Dear Homagni, on what basis you opted 7 funds? had you checked the underlying portfolio of all the 7 funds? How much diversification is there?

    Its good you are starting the investment and SIP is a good mode of investing in MF

    Why do you need 7 funds. It will just create overhead and doesnt help in diversification

    Just keep the 2 funds from the list

    DSPBR top 100 equity REG 3000
    HDFC Equity G 3000

    This will give enough diversification that you need. If you are compelled then you can add a balanced fund
