Q: 31-year-old Pushpendra Mahajan writes to us from Pune. My son is 1-year-old. I want to create wealth of Rs 1.5-2 crore for my kid's education. My investment horizon is 18-20 years. With this objective, I have started SIP of Rs 2,000 each in five funds namely ICICI Pru Bluechip Fund, Kotak Standard Multicap Fund, Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund, Reliance Small Cap Fund and L&T Emerging Business Fund. All are growth options. I am investing from last three months. Please judge whether fund selection and allocation is proper. If any changes needed in fund, please suggest. I am willing to increase SIP as my income increases.
A: With your current investments, you will be able to accumulate around Rs 1 crore at the end of 18 years. We would suggest you to increase your SIP amount by at least 10 percent every year in order to meet your goal. You can continue to invest in ICICI Pru Bluechip Fund, Kotak Standard Multi Cap Fund, Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip and Reliance Small Cap Fund. You can redeem from L&T Emerging Businesses Fund and invest in Canara Robeco Emerging Equities Fund.
