Thank you Dev, for considering my previous question, Dev. i have one more inquiry. This pertains to my long-term investment portfolio, which I've been managing since 2018. Previously, I was using a broker's services, but I've since transitioned to direct funds, I have allocated approximately 19.5 lakhs into the following mutual funds through a systematic investment plan (SIP) over the course of 5 years (starting in 2018-Dec). As of the current date, the total corpus stands at around Rs. 28.4 lakhs, with an XIRR of 15.4%. I have been investing in these funds through a broker and this i have stopped now and now doing it direct mutual funds . My intention is to leave the previous one untouched for another 5 years, using them to finance the construction of my house. Could you please confirm whether I should make any adjustments to this investment if I choose to maintain the status ? What could be the approximate corpus can i assume in next 5 years for it ? below are the funds, where i have invested which shows current XIRR against each with overall XIRR 15.4% Axis Bluechip Reg-G 9.8% ICICI Pru Bluechip Reg-G 19.6% SBI Bluechip Reg-G 16.1% Axis Focused 25 Reg-G 13.4% Axis Midcap Reg-G 19.0% DSP US Flexible Eqt Reg-G 10.6% ICICI Pru Tech Reg-G 24.5% Kotak Flexicap Reg-G 17.2% Mirae Asset Emrgng Bluechip Reg-G 21.5% PGIM Ind Flexi Cap Reg-G 14.1% Out of total 19 .75 lakh invested, this is breakdown of Categorization Large-cap Rs. 8 lakh Mid-Cap Rs. 1.9 lakh Mid&large-cap Rs. 1.35lakh Flexi-Cap is 5.31 lakh International is 1 lakh IT-sector : 2 lakh
Ans: It's essential to acknowledge your decision to transition to direct mutual funds. However, direct mutual funds require more active management and may not offer the same level of handholding as investments made through a broker. Given the importance of your long-term investment portfolio, it might be worth considering whether the potential benefits of lower expense ratios outweigh the need for professional guidance and advice.

Regarding your current investment allocation, maintaining the status quo may seem reasonable, especially with an XIRR of 15.4%. However, it's crucial to reassess your portfolio periodically and ensure it aligns with your financial goals and risk tolerance.

As for the potential corpus in the next five years, historical performance suggests it could grow to around Rs. 56 lakhs, assuming a similar XIRR. Nevertheless, market conditions can change, and actual returns may differ from projections. Regular monitoring and adjustments to your portfolio may be necessary to stay on track with your objectives.

Consider seeking advice from a certified financial planner who can offer personalized guidance tailored to your specific circumstances and goals. They can help you navigate the complexities of investing and make informed decisions to optimize your portfolio's performance.

dear Dev, First of all, thank you for taking the time to review questions from viewers. Your efforts are truly appreciated from the bottom of my heart. I would be really grateful if you could review my investment portfolio. I invest 64,000/- every month in a direct mutual fund, and my plan is to continue this for the next 10 years. ICICI Pru Bluechip - 12,000/- Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip - 4,000/- Axis Mid-cap - 5,000/- HDFC Mid-cap Opp - 5,000/- Axis Small-cap - 6,500/- Quant Active - 6,500/- Parag Parikh Flexi-cap - 8,000/- UTI Nifty 50 - 6,000/- Navi Nasdaq - 6,000/- Tata Digital Industries - 5,000/- Please let me know if you see any need for corrections or changes in my portfolio. Thank you.
Ans: You don't need to invest in so many schemes. There is a lot of overlap in your mutual fund portfolio holdings if you look at individual scheme's portfolios. So just investing the same monthly amount in up to 4 funds would be more than sufficient. You can pick one from Largecap Index Fund, 1-2 from a Flexicap/Large&Midcap Fund, 1-2 from Mid/Smallcap funds and that should be sufficient. In general, most investors are better off avoiding thematic/sectoral funds.
