I want 1 crore for corpus. I invest monthly SIP 30000/- . Pls suggest best fund.
Ans: the best fund for you depends on several factors, including:

Investment Horizon: How long do you plan to invest until you need the Rs. 1 crore? A longer timeframe allows for more aggressive investments with higher growth potential but also higher risk.
Risk Tolerance: How comfortable are you with potential losses? Lower risk tolerance suggests a more conservative portfolio with a larger debt allocation.
Financial Goals: Is this Rs. 1 crore for retirement, a child's education, or another goal? Your goals will influence your investment strategy.
Here's what I can recommend:

Consult a Certified Financial Planner (CFP): A CFP can consider your unique circumstances and create a personalized investment plan to achieve your Rs. 1 crore goal.

Consider a Diversified Portfolio: Don't put all your eggs in one basket. A diversified portfolio with a mix of asset classes (equity, debt, etc.) can help manage risk. Actively managed funds involve experienced fund managers who try to pick stocks to outperform the market. Actively managed funds come with higher fees compared to passively managed funds.

Start an SIP in Equity Funds: If you have a long investment horizon and a moderate risk tolerance, consider a Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) in diversified equity mutual funds. SIPs help you invest regularly and benefit from rupee-cost averaging.

Here's an example (not a recommendation):

Invest in a Multi-Cap Fund (SIP): A Multi-Cap Fund invests across market capitalizations (large, mid, small).

Invest in a Flexi-Cap Fund (SIP): A Flexi-Cap Fund allows the fund manager more flexibility in choosing companies across market capitalizations.

Invest in a Debt Fund (SIP): A Debt Fund provides stability and regular income.

Remember:

There's no guaranteed path to Rs. 1 crore. Investment markets are volatile, and returns cannot be guaranteed.

Review Regularly: Review your portfolio (at least annually) with your CFP to ensure it remains on track.

By consulting a CFP and building a diversified portfolio, you can increase your chances of achieving your Rs. 1 crore goal!

Ans: Creating a corpus of 5 crores in 10 years is an ambitious goal, but with careful planning and strategic investments, it's achievable. Your current investment portfolio and savings habits provide a solid foundation for reaching this milestone.

Given your age of 34 and the 10-year time horizon, we'll need to focus on a growth-oriented investment strategy while ensuring diversification and risk management.

Let's start by optimizing your mutual fund portfolio. While you have a diversified mix of funds, we may need to make some adjustments to align with your goal. Consider increasing allocations to high-growth potential funds like mid-cap and small-cap funds, which historically have outperformed broader market indices.

Regularly review your portfolio to monitor performance and make necessary adjustments based on market conditions and your evolving financial goals.

Additionally, continue your disciplined approach towards savings. Your LIC, PPF, and NPS contributions provide stability and long-term growth opportunities. Ensure you maximize contributions to these instruments within permissible limits to harness their full potential for wealth accumulation.

Remember to stay patient and committed to your financial plan. Building a significant corpus requires time and consistency. As a Certified Financial Planner, I'm here to guide you every step of the way and help you navigate through market fluctuations and uncertainties.

With determination and strategic financial planning, you can achieve your goal of creating a 5 crore corpus in 10 years.

Ans: Assessing Your Financial Goals
Introduction
You have a strong income and diversified investments. Achieving a corpus of ?4-5 crore in 10 years is ambitious but feasible with strategic adjustments.

Current Investments
Shares: ?15 lakh
Mutual Funds (SIP): ?7 lakh
Gold Bonds: ?7 lakh
Physical Gold: ?16 lakh
Life Insurance (PLI): ?20 lakh (?6.7k/month)
ICICI Prudential: ?1 lakh/year
Tata AIA: ?4k/month
NPS: ?2 lakh (?18k/month)
Monthly Income Scheme: ?9 lakh (?5550/month reinvested in Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana)
Fixed Deposit: ?5 lakh
Monthly Expenses and Income
Monthly Income: ?1.5 lakh
Monthly Expenses: ?20-30k
Investment Strategy
Surrender Unnecessary Insurance Policies

Insurance policies like PLI, ICICI Prudential, and Tata AIA may not yield high returns. Consider surrendering these and redirecting the funds to higher-yield investments.

Enhance Mutual Fund Investments

Regular and index funds are a good start. Actively managed mutual funds can offer higher returns than index funds. Focus on diversifying across equity and debt funds.

Increase SIP Contributions

Increase your SIP investments gradually. Start with an additional 10-15% increase and review every 6 months.

Maximise NPS Contributions

NPS offers good returns and tax benefits. Continue the ?18k/month contribution and increase if possible.

Reinvesting Surrendered Insurance Funds
Mutual Funds

Redirect funds from surrendered insurance policies to mutual funds. Choose a mix of large-cap, mid-cap, and small-cap funds.

Equity Investments

With ?15 lakh already in shares, consider blue-chip stocks for stability and growth. Diversify across different sectors.

Debt Investments

Maintain a portion of your portfolio in debt instruments for stability. Consider debt mutual funds or fixed deposits.

Monitoring and Rebalancing Portfolio
Regular Reviews

Review your portfolio quarterly. Ensure your investments align with your risk tolerance and goals.

Adjust Allocations

Adjust your allocations based on market conditions. Increase exposure to equities in a growing market and shift to debt in volatile times.

Planning for Corpus Growth
Targeted Growth Rate

Aim for a balanced portfolio with an average return of 10-12% annually. Equity investments should drive growth, while debt instruments provide stability.

Reinvestment of Returns

Reinvest all returns and dividends. Compounding will significantly boost your corpus over time.

Achieving Your Goal
Projected Corpus

With disciplined investing and strategic adjustments, reaching ?4-5 crore is achievable. Utilize the power of compounding and regular contributions.

Avoid Real Estate

Real estate may not provide liquidity and returns comparable to equities and mutual funds. Focus on market-linked instruments.

Final Recommendations
Consult a CFP

Regular consultations with a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) will help fine-tune your strategy and keep you on track.

Stay Disciplined

Maintain your investment discipline. Avoid impulsive decisions based on market fluctuations.

Conclusion
Your financial foundation is strong, and with strategic adjustments, your goal of ?4-5 crore in 10 years is achievable. Focus on high-yield investments, regular reviews, and disciplined investing.
