A: You can continue to invest in provident fund and ICICI Pru Insurance Policy. In order to fulfill all your goals, we would suggest you to increase your SIP amount every year. For ICICI Wealth Builder ULIP Plan, we would suggest you to keep your investments and insurance separate. You should avoid investing in traditional policies and ULIPs as they generate around 4-5 percent returns and do not beat inflation in the long run.
Since you already have an insurance policy, we would suggest you to redeem your investments from ULIPs and invest in equity mutual funds. For mutual funds, you can continue to invest in Axis Bluechip Fund, L&T Mid-cap and SBI Small-cap Fund. You can redeem from Invesco India Contra, Reliance Pharma and Parag Parekh Long term equity and invest in Kotak Standard Multi-cap, Canara Robeco Emerging Equities fund.
