Dear Ashish,

I am doing good and trust the same with you too!

May I know, why do you want to allocate some amount in fixed income options?

Do you have any existing investments or on-going investments for the mentioned financial goals? If so, kindly share!

In addition to my previous 20 L investment , could you also suggest fund to invest 5000/Month in SIP for 10 years for the purpose of turn down loan interest.


Dear Ashish,

I could notice that you have lot of allocation to mid/small cap funds.

Suggest you to first check the portfolio overlap of these funds on this portal..

Investing in too many funds with same risk profile may not be advisable though your investment horizon is long term.

Sir, I don't invest from my decision instead I follow my Financial advisor recommendation.

I've inform him about conflicting fund and same kind of fund in my portfolio.

Could you please suggest good investment option to new investment as well as to shuffle current investment to have reduced risk


My suggestion would be not to invest in MANY funds. Over diversification is not required.

You may pick one large cap index fund, one flexi cap fund, one mid-small cap fund and a hybrid equity fund.

Has he/she suggested any correction to your portfolio?
