In your hurry to invest, you have invested in seven funds, majority of them invested in the NFO. Moreover having four multi-cap funds, a large-cap fund, an international fund and a thematic fund does not amount to diversification. The impact of such haste in investment is reflected in the performance of the funds. You can learn a lesson from this investment, fund selection is important at the time of investing and you should look for funds that have a performance history and track record.
