Puneet Oberoi, Founder, Excellent Investment Advisors, responds:
You have 10 years for your son's education fund and approximately 11 years for your retirement. Both your goals will fall at the same time. But what you have not mentioned is how much you have already saved for these goals and how much more do you need for these goals.
An SIP is a good way of investing regularly for 10 years. You can invest via an SIP, but how much should you invest depends on the amount you need to achieve these goals.
You can consider investing in the following funds and in the mentioned proportions through SIP
Axis Multicap Fund: 30 per cent
Kotak Equity Opportunities Fund: 25 per cent
Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund: 30 per cent
SBI Small Cap Fund: 15 per cent
