Thank you for your kind words. I hope you have taken sufficient Term Insurance to secure your future. If not, do that on priority basis.
You have a very good selection of funds. You do not need to tinker too much with them. Your 2 lumpsum investments in SBI magnum Multiplier Plus and ICICI Prudential Infrastructure can continued to be held for now.
You have 2 sips in Kotak Opportunities Fund of 3000 each. While you continue with the Starkid Insurance sip, you discontinue with the other one and consider investing in
2000 Sip in Birla Sunlife International Equity Fund - Plan A (An international fund, and added bonus of Free Life Insurance of 2 lakhs)
1000 Sip in JM Contra Fund (Although you have SBI Contra, note that SBI Contra is more of a Diversified Fund rather than a Contra Fund)
Also, switch your sip investment in HDFC Growth Fund to HDFC Prudence Fund. This Fund has been a stellar performance since inception and continues to work its magic even in Bear Market conditions.
Just because you can stay invested for 20 years, does not mean "Invest and Forget". Keep reviewing your investments every 6 months or so to see any noticeable change in any fund's mandate/performance/attribute.
Slowly, as the years progress, switch out from Opportunities Funds to Large Cap Funds to give better stability to your Portfolio.
Anyway, good work. Keep going on.
Best of luck,
Srikanth Shankar Matrubai.
