A: You can continue with your term and health plans.
Child’s education – Rs 1 crore in 20 years With your current investments, you’ll be able to accumulate close to Rs 65 lakh. We would suggest you to increase your investments to Rs 15,000 and keep increasing it gradually. You can continue to invest in ICICI Pru Bluechip Fund and ABSL Tax Relief’96. Instead of ABSL Focused Equity, we would suggest you to invest in SBI Focused Equity Fund. Child’s marriage – Rs 1 crore in 27 years You will able to accumulate close to Rs 1.5 crore with your current investments for this goal. If you want to beat inflation, we would suggest you to increase the SIP every year. You can continue to invest in HDFC Mid-Cap Opp fund. We would suggest you to redeem your investments in PPFAS Long-Term Equity and invest in Kotak Standard Multi-Cap Fund. Retirement – Rs 4 crore in 32 years You’ll be able to accumulate around Rs 5.5 crore with your current investments. You can continue to invest in Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund.
