One, it is not possible to comment about your mutual fund portfolio because you have not shared when you started investing or your reasons for investing in these schemes. You should consult a financial advisor to help you to consolidate your portfolio and map your investments to your various goals. You can hire a fee-only advisor who will offer you help since you take care of your investments.

First, find out your risk profile. We always recommend our readers to choose mutual funds based on their goals, investment horizon, and risk tolerance. Two, don’t invest small amounts in too many schemes to benefit from diversification. Often it results in portfolio overlap and drag down returns. Three or four schemes are good enough to offer diversification and optimum returns. Just make sure you choose schemes that match your objectives.

Assuming an annual return of 12%, you need to invest around Rs 16,000 every month to create a retirement corpus of Rs 3 crore in 25 years. Similarly, you need to invest around Rs 21,500 every month to create a corpus of Rs 50 lakh in 10 years. Note, this is just to give you a rough idea. You need to work with real numbers, provide for annual inflation, and taxes to make it more accurate. If you find it difficult, seek the help of an advisor.
