    Dear Suresh,
    I read your post regularly to benefit from your research.
    I do NOT find ‘Axis Mutual Fund Schemes’ in your Lists of Best Schemes to invest in 2019.
    I have a regular SIP in the following Schemes:

    1. Axis Bluechip Fund (G)
    2. Axis Midcap Fund (G)

    Your comment, please

    • Darsha, Axis midcap fund is already listed in top midcap funds in above article. You can continue to invest in that. Axis Bluechip fund is also good one, you can invest in them.

    Hello Suresh,

    This is a very nice article. Could you do an article on mutual fund houses that all US tax payers(as we are moving to USA this month) to invest in india.

    Other topics if possible, my suggestions are:-
    – When moving to USA, what to do with your Mutual funds – how to save taxes(as there is taxation in USA every year that we have to pay)

    – How to liquidize and where to invest when you are moving to USA or any other country?

    Thanks,
    Prisha

    What is your suggestions

    Thank you sir

      • Thiru

        Thank you sir
        Some times its confusing as a retail investor.
        Some financial advisers recommend
        1 multicap
        1 mid cap
        1 small cap

        Thats it then invest into those 3 funds selected.
        What is your openion and strategy on the above model?
        Thank you sir

        • What happens if such 1 single fund in each category would under perform. Hence I would fee, one should invest in atleast 2 funds from each cateogory so that one fund under performs, other one should help you to grow money. In this case you can select 2 funds each from multicap, midcap and smallcap segment totalling to 6 funds. You can distribute your SIP investments among these 6 funds and start investing.
