    I have invested Rs 25,000 in the following mutual funds two years ago:
    Nippon India Small Cap Fund
    Tata Equity PE Fund
    L&T Emerging Businesses Fund (G)
    IDFC Focused Equity Fund
    L&T Infrastructure Fund
    HDFC Small Cap Fund
    DSP Natural Resources and New Energy Fund

    All the schemes are giving double-digit negative returns. Should I hold these schemes?

    Suresh Sadagopan, Founder, Ladder7 Financial Advisories, responds:


    It looks like you have a very high risk appetite. If not, you might have invested in these schemes based on the returns they had given in the past. If that is the case, it is not the right investment approach. It is important to invest in the mutual fund schemes that are in line with your risk profile.

    Most of the schemes you have chosen are very high-risk schemes. If you are not comfortable with the higher risk element, you need to reallocate the amount in schemes that suit your risk profile. I would advise you to take the help of a mutual fund advisor, who works on a fee-only basis, and then proceed.

    you need consult with mutual fund advisor.
    Anyway,
    you have many schemes, unnecessary you spend valuable money of â ¹25k, on high risk mf schemes.
    your investment mostly tilt towards sectorial thematic, focused, mid&small schemes. Definitely you get double digit negative return. You should reconstruct your portfolio, no need to take bunch of schemes. Four schemes are sufficient with â ¹25k monthly sip investment.
    Sip investment with â ¹25k..
    1.Axis bluechip â ¹7k
    2.Mirae assets bluechip â ¹8k
    3.Parag long term equity â ¹8k
    4.Sbi smallcap â ¹2k
