Do you want to invest Rs 5000 per month ? Start a SIP in Equity Mutual Funds. Over the next 5 to 20 years you can create significant wealth.

Here is how much your money can grow at the rate of ~12% per annum if you invest Rs 5000 per month.

**After year 5, you can have: Rs 4.3 lakhs****After year 8. you can have: Rs 8.3 lakhs**

If you continue doing this, you can have the following amounts in:

**Year 10: Rs 12 lakhs****Year 15: Rs 25 lakhs****Year 20: Rs 48 lakhs****Year 25: Rs 90 lakhs****Year 30: Rs 1.6 CRORES****Year 35: Rs 2.9 CRORES**

Imagine if you are a 25 year old who starts investing Rs 5000 and continue to do it till you retire at the age of 60 – Your small saving per month can grow from Rs 21 lakhs (5000 x 12 months x 35 years = Rs 21 lakhs) to Rs 2.9 crores.

That’s the magic of compounding and investing in the Equity asset class on a regular basis.

**Note**: The 12% return is a conservative assumption as Equity as an asset class has given a return of 16 – 17% per annum over the last few decades. However, there is no guarantee that it will grow at such rates hence the 12% assumption.
