All the three targets that you just plan to work on are long-term in nature and mutual funds can play an essential position in working in direction of these targets.

Similarly on your retirement, the current funding of ₹2,000 per thirty days will make it easier to accumulate round ₹9.5 lakhs after 15 years at a 12% return every year. This quantity is probably not ample so that you can retire as post-retirement life is normally 20 to 25 years in India. You will want an affordable quantity each month to handle your post-retirement life. Hence, you will have to considerably improve your month-to-month funding for retirement or postpone your retirement by few years.

On the funds that you’re investing in, you might contemplate making few adjustments to additional optimize it if it fits your profile. Since your funding interval is 15 years for all of your targets, you possibly can take a look at investing SIPs in Large Cap Equity Funds as a substitute of Balanced or Hybrid Funds. 

Across all of your SIPs, you might be investing 25% in a small cap fund that carries a excessive danger as small cap firms are extra unstable. You can cut back the allocation in small-cap funds by both including your future SIPs in giant cap oriented funds or cut back the current SIP quantity of the small cap fund and make investments it in a big cap or Nifty Index Fund. Ideally, attempt to limit the allocation in direction of small cap funds between 5% to 10% of your general funding as these investments have excessive danger.
