I have a target of 3-4 crores in 10 years. Please advice. I am also thinking of increasing my investments by ~10% year by year.
Nikunj Saraf: Hi Manish. You have over diversified your portfolio, which may negatively impact your long-term returns. It would be better to re-concise and reshuffle your portfolio. A maximum of two schemes are suggested for each category if there are few categories.
Despite the well-chosen funds, I recommend continuing one scheme from each category while holding the rest schemes.
Ensure that you diversify in accordance with your AMC as well. To reach the target amount of 3 crore, a monthly sip investment of 1 lakh is required.
Pushpender Sharma: I have invested in following schemes:
1. PGIM India Mid Cap – 17500
2. Parag Parikh Flexi Cap – 17500
3. Quant Absolute Fund – 17500
4. Canara Robeco blue chip Equity – 7500
Want to build around 2-3cr corpus in next 2-3 yrs? Is this selection is correct do I need to rebalance it.
Nikunj Saraf: Greetings Pushpender Sharma. With currently monthly sip of 60k in the portfolio. Your portfolio is in good shape. You can reconsider Parag Parikh AMC. Also, to achieve the goal of 2-3 cr, in next 2-3 years, I would suggest increasing the sip to 4.38 lakh on monthly basis. Your portfolio does not require rebalancing.
Santosh Sahoo: Sir I Am Small Investor Having Monthly SIP In Canara Robeco Small Cap Fund Direct Growth(1000), PGIM India Midcap Opportunity Fund Direct Growth(1000) And Quant Tax Plan Direct Growth(1000).
I Have Set A Time Period Of 30 Years Of Regular Investing. PLEASE SHARE YOUR VALUABLE OPINION REGARDING MY INVESTMENT STRATEGY AND ALSO ADD MORE VALUE TO MY INVESTMENT PLANNING.
Nikunj Saraf: Hello Santosh. It appears that you have conducted thorough research into the current MF industry. Your selected sips are finely chosen. In order to provide a 30-year future vision, I suggest an annual add-on to the current sip amount. Additionally, try to curate a diversified portfolio with no more than 4-5 schemes in future.

Nikunj Saraf: Hi Vinay Rao. Looking at your current sip allocation, I would suggest reshuffle and rebalance your portfolio. Introduce some new schemes like Quant, PGIM AMC in place of Kotak Flexi cap fund. Try to reduce your AMC allocation which may have overlapping effect in holdings. Axis Bluechip fund can be reconsidered.
Kiran Garde: Age 45. Currently I am investing 25k in SIP.I can take my SIP upto 50k per month. My goal is 2cr in next 13 years.
PFB my current SIPs:
Tata Digital India Fund Direct Growth — 3000

Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund Direct Growth — 2000
DSP Tax Saver Direct Plan Growth — 5000
IIFL Focussed Equity Fund Direct Growth — 5000
Parag Parekh Flexi Cap Fund Direct Growth — 5000
Nikunj Saraf: Hello Kiran. With your current portfolio allocation, I would suggest shuffling and rebalancing your portfolio. For future sips, you may consider considering few schemes like ABSL Tax and Parag Parikh Flexi Cap Fund. To add more sips, try adding to the modified portfolio. It is not suggested to increase the current number of schemes. To achieve the corpus of 2Cr in next 13 years, the required sip amount is 50 k approx which you are already willing to start.
