Key Take aways for investor from the above table:
- Staying Invested for longer periods in equities not only helps in creating wealth but also reduces the risk of negative returns
- While markets can turn volatile in the short term, they deliver positive returns in the long run
- Investors can continue to invest in equities especially via SIPs to tackle interim volatility while they amass wealth over the long term.
3 Reasons to start SIPs now:
• Volatile equity market
Investing in a volatile market can help you accumulate units at a lower cost over a market cycle, which works in your favour as you go about accumulating wealth over the upturn
• Benefit from rupee cost averaging:
Investing a fixed amount of money at regular intervals gets you more units when the NAV of the fund reduces over a market cycle.
• Avoid emotional biases:
While a lot of emotional biases can cloud your investment decisions especially due to market volatility, starting an SIP enables you to invest at regular intervals without letting any human biases in your way
