I will be able to invest max Rs. 2,000 every mth in SIP’s (preferably Equity segment over time horizon of 8-10 yrs). (Will gradually increase this amount of 2,000 subsequently)
My question is:

  1. should I spread out this 2,000 over 2 MF’s SIP or should I just stick to 1 MF…? What could be the possible pros and cons of spreading this amount over 2-3 MF’s)

  2. Also should I consider hybrid MF’s owing to the high volatility in current days in equity markets or stick to equity segment only considering long time horizon of investment? (Consider risk appetite to be moderately high)

Dear sir, I have read lot of about side pocketing. Can you please explain the concept?
