    Dear Lucky, why did you stop after collecting just 11 funds? Please collect 89 more funds from different AMCs to make the list count to 100. That ‘ll be truly diversified portfolio.

    What the aggressiveness has to do with your money? If you want adventure, please join formula 1 racing, parasailing, rockclimbing, bugeejumping or some other adventurous sports.
