    Your mutual fund portfolio lacks focus. The portfolio has too many schemes in it. You don’t need more than three to four schemes in your portfolio. Also, it is not clear why you are investing in an international fund, a money market fund, and low duration fund. You also shouldn’t invest in mid cap and small cap schemes, as these schemes are meant for aggressive investors with a very high risk appetite and ability to withstand volatility.

    You should sharply define your risk profile and recast your portfolio. If you have a moderate risk profile, choose two good multi cap schemes like Kotak Standard Multicap Fund and Parag Parikh Long Term Equity Fund and invest in them to build your retirement corpus.
