    Desire to invest Lump sum Rs. 2L and SIP of 3 L for long terms 3-5 years of more
    Please advise which are MF to invest
    Thanks in advance

    • Kirnalli
      3 to 5 years is short to medium term, hence investing in equity funds is high risk.
      However, since markets have taken some correction, you can invest them in largecap funds like Canara Robecco Bluechip fund or Axis blue chip fund or index funds like UTI Nifty index fund or HDFC Nifty index fund

    Hi Suresh Sir,
    Please suggest investment options other than Fixed deposits for parking money till a period of 2-3 years.
    Please advice any index funds can be considered in our portfolio.

    • You would have seen RBI increasing rates. Bank FD rates would keep increasing for next 6m to 9months. Debt funds can show low returns (increase in interest rates, bond prices would fall). I would suggest you to invest in bank FDs for time being.

  • Madhu
