Hi, we appreciate your choice of funds. We would suggest you to consolidate HDFC Top 200, HDFC Equity Fund and HDFC Growth Fund into just one fund either in HDFC Top 200 or HDFC Equity Fund as both are among the best funds. You may continue SIP in HDFC Prudence Fund and Reliance Growth Fund. Exit from Reliance Diversified Power Sector Fund as it is a poor performing fund and divert that SIP also in the consolidated fund. Our thumbrule for mutual fund investment - 1 Equity diversified fund for Long term needs like child's education, child's marriage and retirement needs; 1 Balanced fund for medium term needs (3 to 5 years ); 1 debt fund for short term needs (2months to 2 years).
