Being a Senior Citizen, you should have to invest in Good Large Cap Funds and not Sector/Theme Funds and not even Opportunity Funds, as these funds take lot of time in giving you returns.
But, first of all, let me assure you that DSP ML is now DSP Black Rock, as Meriyll Lynch People had already their Asset Managemnt Company Worldwide long back. DSP had not yet changed the name of the company, which they have now done. Also, in India, all Mutual Funds are run by Trust where even a change in Company which forms the Trust to run the Mutual funds has NO say in the Day to Day Affairs of the AMC.
Coming to your investment, your investments seem to have been done in the Peak of the bull market and hence, seeing such a HUGE erosion. The Best option for you is to 'JUST STAY INVESTED' and hold on for now.
The funds are good except for DSP Tiger which is a Infrastructure Fund and does not look promising even on a three year horizon. You can switch the same to DSPML Equity fund and stay invested for some time till the markets stabilise and then take a call accordingly.
Best of luck,
Srikanth Shankar Matrubai.
