As Retirement is still 5-10 years away, Equity Mf is a suitable asset class for investment in this time horizon. We would suggest you to invest in Tax Savings Schemes of Mutual Funds which invest in Equity as their returns are pretty good . Morever these funds are consistent as their capital is usually more stable than regular schemes. We would suggest you to invest in either Icici Prudential Tax Plan or Hdfc Long Term Advantage Fund. Both these funds are consistent performers and will also provide you a tax break.
