I want to start five-monthly SIPs of Rs 1,000 per month for my spouse. She is 30 years old and this is for her retirement goal and I do not intend to take this money out for any other expenses. Please let me know which are the top five mutual funds that will give me the maximum benefit in the long term. My risk profile is moderate.

We typically recommend multi cap schemes to equity investors with a moderate risk profile. Multi cap schemes have the freedom to invest across market capitalisation and sectors based on the outlook of the fund manager. These schemes are considered ideal for investors looking to grow wealth over a long period without too much risk. They are riskier than large cap mutual funds, but a lot less riskier than mid and small cap schemes.

Do not start SIPs in five schemes. Since you are investing a modest amount, you can invest in one or two schemes.

Finally, do not go on investing Rs 5,000 to create a retirement fund for your wife. You should increase the investment in line with hike in salary so that you have a sizeable amount to take care of your wife’s living expenses after retirement. Also, try to quantify the living expense, provide for annual inflation, and look at taxation of proceeds from your investments to reach a realistic target for the retirement kitty.
