Ans: According to my analysis of the portfolio, you have hugely over-diversified the amount in numerous funds of the same category. Ideally, we should have only 1 fund in each category. A brief view on funds held in your portfolio is as follows, but please note that selection and allocation of fund totally depends on your risk appetite, objective, investment horizon, and other peculiarities essential for making decision.

I would recommend reducing the number of funds to 4-6 in your current portfolio and increasing your SIPs by 10% or more if feasible based on income increment every year. Choose a fund totally based on your requirement and time frame. This will help you to grow your wealth substantially over time.
1. Quant Small Cap Fund – The fund invests in small-cap companies, which are riskier than large-cap companies. However, small caps have the potential to generate higher returns in the long term only (7-10 years).

2. Quant Tax Plan Fund – The fund provides tax savings up to Rs. 1,50,000 U/s 80C (Only if you choose the old tax regime) with a lock-in period of 3 years, and the fund's performance has been strong in the previous 5 years.

3. Quant Absolute Fund - The Fund is recommendable for investors who are looking for a moderate-risk investment with the potential for above-average returns. The fund's quantitative investment approach has helped it to generate consistent returns over the long term.

4. PGIM India Mid-cap Fund - The fund aims to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing in equity and equity-related instruments of mid-cap companies. It is suitable for investors who are looking for long-term growth (5-7 years) and are willing to accept some risk.

5. Parag Parikh Flexi Cap Fund – The fund is doing well in the current market and has the potential to produce significant returns in the coming market but with discipline. It is advised to invest in this fund or to raise your SIPs in this fund since it diversifies your investment across domestic and international markets.

6. Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund - This fund invests in large and mid-cap companies that are expected to grow persistently. The fund has performed well, and you are advised to continue.

7. ICICI Prudential Dividend Yield Equity Fund - This fund invests in companies that are known to declare high dividends. Dividend fund generally defeats the main aspect of growth and affects compounding in the long run. Thus, it is suggested to cease the SIP.

8. ICICI Prudential Equity & Debt Fund - This fund is a hybrid fund that invests in a mix of equity and debt. It is a good option for investors who want to reduce risk via proportionate 20-25% investment in debt-oriented fund.

9. ICICI Prudential Multi-Asset Fund - This fund is a multi-asset fund that invests in a variety of assets, including stocks, bonds, gold, and commodities. It is a good investment option giving a taste of various asset classes in a single recipe.

10. HDFC Long Duration Debt Fund – This fund has durations of more than 7 years. Adding such a high duration in a portfolio is totally dependent on the interest rate cycle. It is not suggested to continue the SIP.

Tax, Mutual Fund Expert - Answered on May 03, 2023

Kapil Padha: Kindly give your expert opinion regarding my monthly mutual fund investments of Rs. 28000 (all SIPs) I have been doing for the last 4 years. I am 39 yr old. I want to create a corpus of around 2 Crore in the next 15 years. Your expert opinion will be appreciated. 1. HDFC Children's Gift Fund - (Lock-in) - Regular Plan - Rs. 10000. 2. ICICI Prudential Midcap Fund - Growth - Rs. 5000 3. ICICI Prudential Multicap Fund - Growth - Rs. 2000 4. Axis Bluechip Fund - Regular Growth - Rs. 4500 5. Axis Focussed 25 Fund - Regular Growth - Rs. 2000 6. SBI Focussed Equity Fund - Regular Growth - Rs. 4500 Are the funds mentioned above good? Or do I have to change to some other funds?
Ans: Dear Kapil,

I appreciate your proactive approach towards building wealth for the future. I must say that you have chosen a diversified set of mutual funds which is a good start towards achieving your financial goals.

To begin with, your investment of Rs. 28,000 per month towards mutual funds is a commendable step towards wealth creation. Assuming a yearly growth rate of 12%, you can potentially reach your target of 2 Crore in the next 15 years.

Coming to your mutual fund portfolio, the HDFC Children's Gift Fund has a lock-in period of five years, which is ideal if you are investing for your child's education or marriage. However, you may consider shifting your investments to the HDFC Hybrid Equity Fund or HDFC Equity Fund, which have delivered good returns historically and have a lower lock-in period.

The ICICI Prudential Midcap Fund and ICICI Prudential Multicap Fund are excellent choices for investing in mid-cap and multi-cap funds, respectively. The Axis Bluechip Fund is a good option for investing in blue-chip companies, while the Axis Focused 25 Fund and SBI Focused Equity Fund are suitable for investing in focused portfolios.

Overall, your mutual fund portfolio seems to be well diversified, and you may consider making minor tweaks to it based on your risk appetite and investment goals. As always, it's essential to consult with your financial advisor before making any investment decisions.

I hope this helps!
