Who can invest in this smallcap fund?

Earlier we analyzed 10 mutual fund schemes that generated highest SIP returns in 10 years which includes various market cap categories.

Mutual funds can perform better in medium to long term. This mutual fund scheme is small cap fund and is very high risk. Smallcap or midcap segment can outperform in long term and may or may not perform well in short to medium term.

Don’t carry away with such high SIP returns of this fund.

If you are a high risk investor and want to invest for a medium to long term, you can invest in such funds. You need to have patience in case such mutual funds underperform in short to medium term. You should invest in a diversified portfolio of mutual funds consisting of large cap midcap and smallcap funds so that underperformance of one segment should not affect your portfolio.

    • You have too many funds, reduce them to 5-7 (if you can). e.g. you don’t need focused fund or too many midcap funds or small cap funds. You can consider portfolio like this (as an example)
      1) CR Smallcap fund
      2) Invesco Infra fund
      3) PGIM Midcap fund
      4) Parag Parikh flexicap
      5) Tata digital fund
      6) ICICI Bluechip fund

      and tax saving one (if planning for tax savings)

    I am investing in Mutual funds from past 7 to 8 months with 12500.

    UTI index fund 4000
    Paras parig flexi cap 3000
    Axis long term equity Elss 2000
    Canara robecco blue chip fund 3500

    Are these funds okay or should I remove/add funds?
    Are the allocations fine? Should I increase or decrease ?
    Are the stocks overlapping?

    Axis Blue Chip 20%
    SBI Small Cap 20%
    Motilal Oswal Nasdaq 100 FOF 15% (especially this one as there are foreign investment regulations)

    • Dev, Good funds. You have largecap fund, flexicap fund, smallcap fund and international fund. If possible, you can add one midcap fund too.

    • Dev

      Thanks to your posts that I could choose these funds.
      I will have to go for ELSS fund also this year.
      So, I might not be comfortable adding one more fund. Still, I will research on midcap funds and then will decide.
      Thank you so much!
