This is V Sridhar here a Specialist in Financial Planning. The funds selected by u comprise a really good portfolio. I would recommend u to add JM Emerging Leaders Fundy (small cap vaule fund, managed by Sandip Sabharwal - Ex SBI TaxGain Fund Mgr). Comment on the funds.

HDFC Cap Builder: It invests across caps. Tilts its porfolio to either mid or large cap depending on mkt situation. It is a avg performer when compared to it peers.

HDFC Top 200: This fund is primarily a large cap fund. It has above avg performance. Managed by Prashant Jain, a very good fund mgr. HDFC has a gr8 fund mgmt team.

Reliance Growth: Fund size has grown too large. It is primarily a mid to small cap fund. Hence it is difficult to perform with such a large fund size, eventhough it is being managed by a gr8 fund mgmt team. A better option would be JM emerging leaders fund. I have personally met the fund mgr - sandip sabharwal. And I feel more confident that he would perform better.
