Asked on - Apr 22, 2023Hindi

Presently I am investing SIP of Rs. 1500/- p.m. in Nippon Mutual Fund, earlier it was Reliance. This SIP is in Growth Mutual fund. Is it ok to continue or I can invest same amount of SIP in another Mutual Fund. Please guide. PRASHANT KULKARNI, PUNE
Ans: Dear Prashant,

Thank you for reaching out with your query. I understand you're currently investing Rs. 1500 per month in a SIP with Nippon Mutual Fund (previously Reliance), and you're seeking guidance on whether to continue with the same or consider another mutual fund.

As a financial advisor, my advice to you would be to first assess your financial goals, investment horizon, and risk appetite. These factors will help you make a more informed decision about your investments. Since you've mentioned that the current investment is in a growth mutual fund, it's likely that this fund is focused on capital appreciation by investing primarily in equity stocks.

To determine whether you should continue with your current SIP, consider the following:

Fund performance: Analyze the past performance of the Nippon Mutual Fund you're invested in by comparing it to benchmark indices and peer funds in the same category. A consistent track record of outperforming its benchmark and peers could indicate that the fund is being managed well.
Fund manager's experience and strategy: Look into the fund manager's experience and investment strategy. A fund manager with a successful track record and a strategy that aligns with your investment goals can be a positive sign.
Diversification: It's always a good idea to diversify your investments across various sectors and fund houses. If the Nippon Mutual Fund is your only investment, you may want to consider adding another mutual fund from a different fund house to your portfolio. This will help in spreading the risk and potentially enhancing returns.
Costs: Evaluate the expense ratio of your current fund and compare it to other funds in the same category. A lower expense ratio can result in higher returns over time.
If, after considering these factors, you find that your current mutual fund aligns well with your financial goals, investment horizon, and risk appetite, you may continue with the SIP. However, if you feel that there's room for improvement, you may consider exploring other mutual funds that better suit your requirements.

Please remember that past performance is not a guarantee for future returns, and it's always important to review your investments periodically to ensure they remain aligned with your financial objectives.

I hope this helps, Prashant.
