I want to start a SIP for my son who is 21 years old. This is for 10000 per month with regular top ups for a duration of about 30 years. Which category of mutual fund would be advisable for this? And what kind of returns can be expected in percentage terms in this
Ans: Hi Akhilesh, thank you for writing to me. As your goal duration is long, your son will see the benefits of compounding.
As your goal seems to be long term wealth creation, I recommend you invest in equity and hybrid funds.
You can consider starting monthly SIP's in:
1-Samco Flexicap Fund- Rs.2,500
2-Edelweiss Nifty 100 Quality 30 Index Fund- Rs.2,500
3-DSP Quant Fund-Rs.2,500
4-HDFC Top 100 Fund-Rs.2,500
