Invest In SIP
Systematic Investment Plans (SIPs) can turn a modest investment into a substantial fund. By investing Rs 5,000 monthly through SIPs, you can create a sizable fund.
Investing Rs 5,000 monthly for ten years could accumulate around Rs 6 lakh. With the potential for robust returns, extending this SIP investment for ten years could result in a fund of Rs 13.9 lakh.
A 40-year investment could yield returns of up to Rs 15.5 crore on an initial investment of Rs 24 lakh.
Considerations Before Investing
Before delving into investments, it’s vital to grasp the intricacies associated with risks. To minimize risks, avoid investing in a company’s shares solely based on high returns.
Short-term investments usually carry higher risks, making long-term investments a wiser choice. Diversify your investments across various platforms rather than putting all your money into a single type of investment. Initiating investments sooner can result in more substantial returns.
