How many funds or stocks should you diversify your portfolio over?

A single mutual fund is itself a fair diversification as it often holds 25 stocks from different sectors. If you have about three  such generic equity funds, you will likely hold most of the top 100 market stocks. More funds only lead to overlapping holding of same stocks, not further diversification. 

Follow the simple thumb-rule:

Long term goals - 1 equity diversified fund

Short term goals - 1 debt fund

Mid term goals - 1 hybrid fund

Tax saving - 1 ELSS fund
