Best mutual funds: As investors, you would be wondering how to make as much money as possible from the funds available to you through your income and savings.

To help you in your bid to make money, Zee Business' financial expert Alok Agrawala has some very useful tips.
Some of the questions that you would be dealing with on a regular basis could be as to how many funds you should be keeping in your portfolio? How to diversify the portfolio? What is the difference between diversification and over-diversification? How many funds should be there for the purpose of tax benefits? When is the right time to review your portfolio and when to stop a fund or withdraw funds etc?
The size of a portfolio depends upon person to person. Your financial goals and the fund allocation that you can do determines the size of the portfolio. If you have a big equity portfolio, then you may have large-cap, multi-cap, mid-cap, and small-cap stocks. Ideally, a big equity portfolio should have 5-6 schemes. You can include focused, thematic or sectoral funds too. You can have short, medium and long duration schemes too.
If you have a small equity portfolio, you may keep multi-cap and focused funds. The size can be between 2-3 funds at any time.
Always analyse the risks and rewards in new funds.
