    Thanks Suresh Sir,
    Which other fund I need to consider for investing debt, equity, small cap or multicap to diversify my portfolio. I am planning to invest in Mirae assete tax saver fundz. Is it ok

    • Hello Savaeesingh, Since you have 1 bluechip fund and 1 midcap fund (other than hybrid FOF fund which you may review and exit), you may consider one hybrid balanced fund. You can pick one of the fund indicated in the article. Regd mirae assets tax saver fund, it is good fund to save tax, however it has < 5 years of history, hence I would advice you to go for long term performance fund.

      2) Invesco India midcap – One of the best performing midcap fund – Continue to invest
      3) ICICI Assets allocator FOF – This is balanced hybrid fund, but fund of funds. I would advice you to review and invest in a good balanced fund which is regular fund and not fund of fund

    1. HDFC Mid-Cap Opportunities Fund (Direct)
    2. HDFC Hybrid Equity Fund-Dir-Growth
    3. ICICI Prudential Focused Bluechip Equity Fund

    Other current investment – PPF.

    Also, I am thinking about FD/RD in a small finance bank (Suryoday). Please let me know your suggestion if this is the right move.

    Thanks

    • Hello Suresh CM, Good to hear about you. These are good funds and you can continue. Pls note that HDFC Midcap is under performing as all midcap/smallcap segments are underperforming now. Regd Suryoday small finance FD, these are small finance banks, hence little riskier compared to regular banks as they have limited operational history. If you are high risk investor, you can invest.
