I have SIP in following funds since last 3 years should i continue or switch:

1.ABSL Pharma fund growth
2.ABSL digital fund growth
3.ABSL low duration fund
4.ICICI asset allocator fund
5.SBI Banking and finance fund
6.ABSL Banking and finance fund

Ans: In Large Cap: Axis Bluechip Fund - Growth is a better option

Too many Sectoral Funds; the risk of concentration is high; instead diversified funds are better option.

  1. UTI Equity Fund – Growth
  2. DSP mid cap Fund – Growth
  3. Tata Large & Mid Cap Fund - Growth
  4. Canara Robeco Emerging Equities – Growth

Above funds have decent exposure to Pharma, Banking and Technology

Rest of the funds are okay.

Ans: Evaluating Your Investment Portfolio: Should You Continue or Switch?
Understanding Your Current Portfolio
Your current investment portfolio consists of a mix of actively managed mutual funds across various categories. Let's delve into each fund and evaluate its performance and potential.

Assessing Fund Performance
SBI PSU Fund: This fund invests primarily in stocks of public sector undertakings. Over the past year, its performance may have been affected by market conditions and the performance of PSU stocks.
SBI Healthcare Opportunities Fund: Focused on the healthcare sector, this fund may have seen fluctuations due to sector-specific factors and market dynamics.
SBI Contra Fund: As a contrarian fund, it aims to invest in undervalued stocks. Its performance depends on the fund manager's ability to identify such opportunities.
Quant Small Cap Fund & Quant Mid Cap Fund: These funds target small and mid-cap stocks, which can be volatile but offer growth potential.
Nippon India Small Cap Fund: Similar to the Quant funds, this one focuses on small-cap stocks, which carry higher risk but can deliver higher returns over the long term.
Considering Switching Options
Switching investments should be driven by changes in your financial goals, risk tolerance, and the performance of your current funds. Here are some considerations:

Performance Comparison: Evaluate the performance of your funds against their benchmarks and peers. Consistent underperformance might warrant a switch.
Diversification: Assess the diversification of your portfolio across sectors and market caps. Switching may be considered to achieve better diversification.
Expense Ratio: Actively managed funds typically have higher expense ratios compared to index funds. However, they may offer the potential for outperformance, which needs to be weighed against the higher costs.
Decision Making
Review Your Goals: Reflect on your financial goals and investment horizon. Ensure that your investment choices align with your objectives.
Risk Tolerance: Consider your risk tolerance and whether you are comfortable with the volatility associated with certain sectors or market segments.
Consultation: Seek advice from a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) who can provide personalized guidance based on your individual circumstances.
Conclusion
In conclusion, the decision to continue or switch your investments depends on various factors including performance, diversification, and alignment with your financial goals. A thorough evaluation of each fund's performance and your investment objectives is crucial in making an informed decision.
