I have a moderately medium risk appetite with focus on maximum corpus build. Please give your opinion and suggest if some changes are required. Thanks much in advance.
Ans: Hello Value Investor. I can see over diversification with your current investments with sip amount. I would suggest to concise your mf investments and reshuffle the portfolio. Additionally, reconsider Aditya Birla Sun Life Tax Relief 96 Fund , Axis Long Term Equity Fund and SBI Focused Equity Fund for your portfolio. You can achieve your target till retirement with your current sip amount.
