First, we are assuming that you are investing in these schemes to meet your long-term financial goals. If so, it would be a better idea to quantify your goals and start an investment plan to ensure that you meet your goals with out fail. Random investments and targets would not help you to meet your goals. Often, it leads to unpleasant surprises.
Two, a long-term investor with a moderate risk appetite should invest mostly in multi cap mutual funds. The investor can also add large cap or aggressive hybrid schemes if she wants to diversify the portfolio or reduce the overall risk in the portfolio.
You are currently investing in two tax-saving mutual fund schemes, two mid cap funds, a large & mid cap fund, multi cap scheme and large cap scheme. Three schemes - large & mid cap scheme and two mid cap schemes – do not match your risk profile. They are meant for investors with an aggressive risk appetite. If you think you have the ability and appetite for higher risk and volatility, you may continue with them.
