I am 32 years old salaried person. Monthly salary is 50k. I want to diversify 80k in large, mid and small cap mutual funds. Which plans should I choose? Please help as I am new to mutual funds.

Ans: It is not clear how you want to invest 80K from a 50K monthly income. If this is a typo and you meant 8K per month, then for this amount, you don't need to diversify too much. Just pick one passive index fund and a flexicap fund for this and start your SIPs. Even picking one from these two is sufficient. When picking funds, look at the fund vintage and investment philosophy of the AMC/fund manager handling it. Better to go with funds which have seen a full market cycle instead of yet-to-prove newer ones.

If you meant one time Rs 80K to be distributed into funds, then also you can follow the above suggested fund categories.

Good Morning Sir, I am 52 years old and wish to start investing in Mutual Fund with 10K per month as a beginner for a period of 3/5 years Kindly advise me how would I diversify / allocate the money in different funds so as to get the maximum returns Regards Sangeeta Das
Ans: Sangeeta! It's great to hear that you're considering starting your investment journey with mutual funds. Since you have a monthly investment amount of 10,000 INR and a time horizon of 3-5 years, here's a suggested approach to diversify your investments:

Large Cap Funds: These funds invest in well-established companies with a track record of stable performance. They can offer stability to your portfolio.
Allocate around 30-40% of your investment amount to large cap funds.
Mid Cap Funds: Mid cap funds invest in companies with medium market capitalization, offering higher growth potential than large caps but with slightly more risk.
Allocate around 20-30% of your investment amount to mid cap funds.
Small Cap Funds: These funds invest in small companies with high growth potential but higher risk. They can add growth opportunities to your portfolio.
Allocate around 20-30% of your investment amount to small cap funds.
Diversified Equity Funds: These funds invest across market caps and sectors, offering broad diversification and potential for higher returns.
Allocate around 10-20% of your investment amount to diversified equity funds.
Balanced Funds: Balanced funds invest in a mix of equities and debt instruments, offering a balance between growth and stability.
Allocate around 10-20% of your investment amount to balanced funds.
Sectoral Funds (Optional): If you have a specific sector or theme in mind that you believe will perform well, you can allocate a small portion of your investment amount to sectoral funds. However, be cautious as these funds can be more volatile.
Limit the allocation to sectoral funds to around 5-10% of your investment amount.
Remember to review your portfolio regularly and rebalance if necessary to maintain your desired asset allocation. Additionally, consider factors such as expense ratios, fund manager track record, and historical performance when selecting mutual funds.

Lastly, it's always a good idea to consult with a financial advisor to ensure your investment strategy aligns with your financial goals and risk tolerance. Happy investing, Sangeeta!
