  1. before investing in any product one should be clear about:

    1. why am I investing?
    2. when will I need the money? For goals more than 5 years away most of my money can be in MFs for less 5 years away one a small portion. For less 3 years away no MFs at all.

    For goals more than 5 years away I will have 60-70% in equity MFs and rest in debt products (MFs, FD, bonds etc)

    For equity MFs choose large caps as the core holding and small- and mid-cap funds as satellite holding.

    ICICI Discovery is a good fund but it should part of the satellite holding that is your main MF mutual fund investment should be in a large cap fund and then some portion in this.

    See this for a step by step to choosing a MF
