Stick to broad equity funds instead of sector funds to achieve your goal

You have selected 5-star funds such as HDFC Top 200 a large- and mid-cap fund and ICICI Discovery, which is a mid- and small-cap fund. Both these funds have proven track records and performance history which should help your investments. However, your selection of a pharma, banking and infrastructure fund is a bit confusing. Thematic and sector funds work well when these match the need to emphasise the bias that the sector or theme brings into your overall portfolio. Investing through SIPs in these funds is best avoided. Stick to broad equity funds with large- and mid-cap funds for a portfolio that is stable and also grows with time. Consider moving from these three and include a large-cap fund such as Franklin India Bluechip or IDFC Imperial Equity Plan A.
