I need analysis on this whether to continue or close the mutual funds
Ans: Overall, you have over-diversified your investments. It is always better to invest in one or maximum two funds of the same category.
Although, all funds chosen by you have good fundamentals, but they carry a high level of risk with them. Without the risk profile and investment time horizon, it is difficult to comment on how long to stay invested in these funds. We should not only focus on funds’ performance but also our risk appetite and investment time horizon.
Special recommendation on sectoral/thematic funds are as follows:
Tata Digital India Fund Direct Growth: It invests primarily in companies related to digital technology and innovation in India. The fund has delivered average annual returns of 20.65% since inception. You may need to review it every six months or in case of any material change in the fund or industry. As of now, the fundamentals seem good, but sectoral funds come with very high risk.
ICICI Prudential Commodities Fund: It invests in equity-related securities of companies engaged in commodities and commodities-related sectors. The fund has delivered a higher return as compared with the category average, and should be reviewed every six months or in case of any material change in the industry.
