Thanks for appreciating our work. Your portfolio mix indicates 90% equity and 10% debt asset allocation. This is a fairly aggressive asset allocation but it should work for you because you mentioned that you have a moderate to aggressive risk appetite. All the funds selected by you are top performers and you can continue SIP in these funds. However, you should remember that top performers today may not be top performers tomorrow. So you should monitor the performance of the funds on a regular basis and take suitable actions if required.

Once you are near the end of your SIP tenure, by which time based on your information you will be around 50 years old, you should switch some of your equity funds to debt funds and / or MIPs to bring asset allocation to 60 (equity):40 (debt) or 50:50 and de-risk your portfolio.
