  • Sreekesh M

    Sir
    Is it worthy in long run to invest a lumpsum amount in equity fund of which NAV is below 10 at present .Also I chose SBI Gold fund,Franklin Templeton Feeder India US
    Opportunities Fund, Edilwiess balanced growth fund as long term investment (all are Sips). Request your advice on this.

    • Hello Sreekesh, Less NAV does not mean that mutual fund is coming cheaper. There are several mutual fund NAVs which are above Rs 50, but give high returns too. One should pick mutual fund scheme based on risk appetite, past performance and based on financial goal tenure.

    • Hello Jey, you have smallcap in your portfolio. If you are high risk taker and willing to invest for 8-10 years atleaest, you can continue to invest in these funds. Otherwise, you should diversify and have largecap, midcap, balanced also in your portfolio. You can refer our article about 10 funds which are diversified across market cap

    • Hello, Subramanian, Your fund selection is good except for BNP Paribas Focussed 25 equity fund which is relatively new fund (< 3 years). Consider switching this to another multicap fund indicated in our article. Also your fund has over weightage of idcap and smallcap segments. Unless you are very high risk investor, you should have diversified portfolio of largecap, multicap also in your portfolio. Pls review and add some funds from these segments too
