If I am willing to take risk should I invest in Infrastructure funds through SIPs

I'm planning to start the following SIPs from September. I'm 26 years old and I'm willing to take risks since my investment horizon is 10 years. Please let me know of your thoughts? 1. Reliance Tax Saver - 10k, 2. UTI Transportation and Logistics - 4k, 3. ICICI Prudential Value Discovery - 4k, 4. Franklin Smaller Companies - 4k, 5. Franklin Build India - 4k, 6. Kotak Infrastructure and Economic Reform - 4k. Total = 30k/pm. Chose 5 and 6, because I feel infrastructure will get a big boost in the next 2/3 years. Please advise?

Just because your risk taking appetite is high does not mean that you should invest in Infrastructure funds through SIPs. If you feel that this sector will do very well in next 2- 3 years, then why do not you invest some lumpsum amount in these funds?

It always makes sense to go with diversified equity funds for doing your long term SIP investments. However, if your risk taking appetite is high, as you have mentioned it is, then you may also invest through SIPs in mid and small cap funds. They would be much better off, hopefully, than infrastructure funds in the long run.
