Mutual funds: Monthly SIP you need to accumulate ₹79 crore when you turn 60

Mutual funds are one of the most favoured investment options among those investors who are in the nascent phase of one’s career. It allows an investor to invest in stocks and get average return over the period of time if the investor has chosen systematic investment plan (SIP). So, mutual fund SIP is one of the good option for those who have high risk appetite and they want to accumulate wealth for their financial requirements post-retirement.

15 x 15 x 15 rule of mutual funds suggests that if an investor starts investing from 25 years of age, then starting a mutual fund SIP at the age of 25 for next 15 years with monthly SIP of 15,000, the investor can expect to get 15 per cent return on one’s SIP and 1 crore maturity amount. However, if we go by tax and investment experts’ views, one should increase one’s monthly SIP with increase in one’s income using annual step up plan. By doing this, the mutual fund investor will be able to maximise one’s return as he or she would get higher compounding benefit in long term.

How to become crorepati

On how to utilise 15 x 15 x 15 rule of mutual funds, Pankaj Mathpal, MD & CEO at Optima Money Managers said, “By investing 15,000 per month in SIP mode, a mutual fund investor can expect to get 15 per cent return on one’s money after 15 years and hence the maturity amount would become around 1 crore. However, my suggestion for the mutual funds investor is to increase one’s monthly SIP by 15 per cent after completion of each one year, as one’s annual income rise by 12 to 15 per cent and hence raising monthly SIP amount by 15 per cent won’t be a hectic task. By doing this, one would be able to get more than 2 crore maturity amount after 15 years.”

Advising mutual fund investors to start 15,000 at the beginning of one’s career and continue investing till one retires, SEBI registered tax and investment expert Jitendra Solanki said, “One should start 15,000 monthly SIP in equity mutual funds and continue investing till 60 years as it would enable him or her to maximise the benefit of early settlement in one’s career and enhance higher maturity amount in one’s retirement fund.”

On how early investment would benefit mutual funds investor, Jitendra Solanki said, “If someone begins mutual fund SIP at the age of 25, he or she would be able to invest for 35 years, leading to higher compounding benefit and maturity amount.”

On whether the mutual fund scheme chosen for long term would exist for that much long or not, Jitendra Solanki clarified, “If an asset management company (AMC) closes down then other AMC would take over and the scheme would continue further. At the time of takeover, new AMC gives old investors two options — to continue or exit. If the investor is convinced with the new AMC and its fund managers, it can continue with one’s mutual fund SIP without any hassle. In case, he exercises the exit option, the investor can choose other good scheme and divert the maturity amount there and continue investing in SIP mode at new scheme. This will allow the investor to continue the long term investment strategy without any impact on one’s investment goal.”

Suppose a mutual funds investor starts 15,000 monthly SIP at the age of 25 and continues investing in it for next 35 years maintaining 15 per cent annual step up, the as per the SIP calculator, one would get a maturity amount of 79,16,51,398 or say around 79 crore.

Out of these 79,16,51,398, investor’s net investment amount would be 15,86,10,628 and net return on one’s money would be 63,30,40,770.
