Subbu's Solution

I am 25 years old and have just started two monthly SIP`s of Rs 1,000 each, in ICICI Prudential Focused Bluechip and Birla Sun life Frontline Equity fund. I have also started a recurring deposit of Rs 2,000. I can further invest Rs 3,000-5,000 a month.

Where should I invest?

It’s great that you are thinking of saving and investing when most people of your age are only busy spending! You’d have about 3 decades of investing time and if you keep a disciplined approach, most of your life goals should be met smoothly with your investments. Presently you have allocated 50-50 to equity and fixed income respectively. Typically for your age this ratio can be 75-25. Gold is also a must-have for any long term portfolio. So you could invest about 5% of your total amount in a Gold ETF if you have a demat account, else in a Gold Savings Fund. The rest – 20% can be in a liquid fund and an RD. The equity investments could be among 2-3 diversified fund & mid cap equity funds. It is important that you choose the individual funds right and also maintain your portfolio balance among different asset categories. While choosing equity funds it is important to see the process followed by the fund manager. Do not look at the near term returns of the fund, but look at the fund returns over long periods and in different situations. Moreover you could also consult a financial advisor to suggest you a scheme.
