Firstly congratulations for your decision to start SIPs in equity mutual funds at a young age. If you invest through SIPs in a disciplined manner over a long investment horizon, you can create substantial wealth. Assuming you get 17 - 20% returns on your investment, you can accumulate a corpus of Rs 70 lacs to 1 crore through your SIP by the time you are just 40.

We do not specific investment advice in Advisorkhoj.com. However, to ensure good returns in different market scenarios, you can select a combination of large cap and midcap funds for your portfolio. Since you are starting with an SIP of Rs 5,000 you should not select more than 2 funds.
