  1. These carefree days may not last more than a few years
  2. You get older – your earnings increase as do your expenses. A house, a car, school fees…

There’s no rule that says you can’t spend when you have the disposable income.

Just as drops of water make an ocean, small but regular investments can go a long way in building wealth over a period of time.You may have to choose from various investment options available if liquidity concerns you

SIP is a method of investing a fixed sum, regularly, in a mutual fund scheme. SIP allows an investor to buy units regularly on a specific date of the month. This will help in building wealth in the long term. Due to the principle of cost averaging, more number of units are bought in a falling market and fewer units in a rising  market. SIPs allow you to take part in the stock market, without trying to time it, also bringing discipline to your investments.

It’s the key to investing success. Regular investment makes you disciplined in your savings and also leads to wealth accumulation. Systematic investing is a time-tested discipline that makes it easy to invest automatically. Investing regularly in small amounts can often lead to better results than investing in a lump sum.INVEST NOW
