What to do with non-performing Mutual funds and re-invest into better funds

I have been investing in MFs since 10 years but now, I am facing a situation where one of my funds SBI Magnum Tax Gain Growth is not performing well since 3 years. Been patient enough for the fund to improve it's performance but to no avail. So, I am contemplating to redeem and re-invest in some other multicap/diversified equity fund. Please guide me to resolve my confusion. I have - 3 ELSS Funds (ABC'96, Axis LT Eq, Rel Tax Saver) - ongoing SIPs, Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund - ongoing SIP, SBI Magnum Tax Gain Growth - No SIP. All units can be redeemed. HDFC Tax Saver - No SIP, HDFC Top 200 - No SIP. SBI Magnum Tax Gain is not performing well since past 3 years. So, I want to redeem (all the corpus Rs. 6 lakhs) and subsequently invest in existing ELSS or buy new Multicap Fund. My questions are - 1. Should I invest in existing ELSS (ABC'96/Axis LT Eq) or a new Multicap fund? (Do you think that ELSS Funds, because of their 3 years lock-in, give additional freedom in comparison to other multicap funds for the fund manager to take long term calls eventually translating into better performance? Note - I do not need this money for next 7-10 years.) 2. Should I redeem in one go or in parts (say, 3 nos) from SBI Magnum Tax Gain and then re-invest that money? 3 As of now, SBI Magnum, though a diversified equity fund, has more (approx 70%) Large Cap exposure. If the ELSS or Multicap fund has more Mid-cap exposure. (eg. ABC'96 has approx 50% exposure), do you think it makes sense to invest via SIP (6-9 nos.) or should I invest lumpsum without worrying too much about Mid-cap exposure and volatility because I do not need this money for next 7-10 years?

Yes, you are right ! Once a marquee fund SBI Magnum Tax Gain failed in performing compared to its peers and therefore, your idea of redeeming from it and investing in some good performing funds is okay... Read More

Should I invest more in small and midcap mutual funds

I want some advice regarding my investments. I am investing 50k per month equally distributed in 5 mutual funds - 1. ICICI Pru Focussed Bluchip, 2. SBI Large Cap, 3. ABSL Equity, 4. ABSL Small and Midcap, 5. L&T Midcap Fund. I am a Govt. employee and I do not have any immediate need of money in next few years. I have tried to pick funds with long term proven returns. Please help me with my investments. Also, we generally say that if we have long investment period, then only we should invest in small or midcap funds. Now, if I say that I am ok with my money locked for next 10 years, why I should be investing 100% in small or midcap fund to maximize returns. What is the possible downside?
