Thanks for being a regular visitor to our website and also for the kind words. I am glad that you are now more aware about the value of investing in mutual funds.

Here you go with my suggestions –

1. Franklin India Equity Fund could not perform well in the last 1 and 3 year period. The fund failed in beating category and benchmark return in the last 1 and 3 year period. Therefore, it needs review. You can check a list of top performing multi-cap funds here Multi-Cap Funds are good for meeting your long term goals.

2. SBI Blue Chip Fund is one of the top performing funds in the large cap category. Assuming 12% annual returns, you can expect Rs 13.20 Lakhs after 7 years from the date of investment

3. Your son has invested in a top performing multi-cap fund and you should preach the ‘power of compounding’ (which you are already aware of) to him too so that he continues investing in it in the long run.

4. Franklin India Prima Fund has a long term track record of out-performance and thus you can continue to remain invested with it. With Rs 2,000 monthly SIP, you can expect over Rs 10 Lakhs after 15 years assuming 12% annual returns.

I have used this tool to calculate future value of your SIPs

Hope the above is useful. Wishing you the best !
