SBI Bluechip Fund: Rs 35,000 (lumpsum)
Aditya Birla Sun Life MNC Fund: Rs 35,000 (lumpsum)
L&T Midcap Fund: Rs 35,000 (lumpsum)
Axis Bluechip Fund: Rs 35,000 (lumpsum)

I would suggest you to sit with a certified financial planner or an RIA and write down your goals and then invest. Your portfolio is diversified but it is important to have a direction. You have not shared when you have started investing, what are your goals or when will your goals mature. These are few important requirements that you need to fulfill first for yourself.

  • >3 years Suggested Investment Horizon
  • 2.11 YearsTime taken to double money
  • 19.81%Annualized Return for 3 year
  • >3 years Suggested Investment Horizon
  • 4.10 YearsTime taken to double money

Investing with clear written down goals will help you in choosing your investments. Take the help of a CFP or RIA. They can help you in this as they are experts. Remember, choosing mutual funds for a lumpsum and SIP will have different strategies and hence you need to choose funds accordingly.
