Note: This post was edited on January 12th 2018 because the graphic showing return on investment for 8 months was wrong, as pointed out by commenter NMK. I try very hard to avoid mistakes, but shit happens! Always grateful to readers who point it out. I’ll also ensure that it doesn’t happen again. Check, double check, triple check! Thank you.
Why SIP Mutual Funds?
About two years ago, I began investing a portion of my salary into an SIP Mutual Fund. I chose to invest in an SIP Mutual Fund for two reasons – the first reason was that I was investing for the long term, and so, I could take on a greater amount of risk. The second reason was that SIPs allowed me to make small investments every month, as opposed to a large one time investment (which I didn’t have the money for). I’ve been paying out instalments for 22 months now, and I thought I’d share how it’s working out for me so far.
