Am I investing in the right portfolio as per my risk profile, investment horizon and goal? Are these the right SIPs to invest based on my risk profile?
-Sreedeep S Nair
A conservative long-term investor is typically asked to invest mostly in large cap funds or aggressive hybrid funds. That means the first two schemes- Axis scheme and UTI scheme- are in line with your risk profile. Large & mid cap scheme, flexi cap scheme, and international scheme – your other investments- are meant for investors with a higher risk appetite.
Your definition of long term is wrong. Seven years are considered the minimum period to invest in equity funds. Assuming an annual return of around 12%, your monthly investments of around Rs 30,000 would make around Rs 69.70 lakh at the end of 10 years.
Lastly, do not assume a nice round figure like Rs 1 crore will be enough to take care of your future goals. Work with real numbers, inflation, and taxes to arrive at realistic targets.
