As they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. The magic of compounding must also be seen to believe. For instance, if you were consistent in making an investment of ₹15,000 every month via systematic investment plan (SIP) in JM Flexi cap fund (growth), you could have accumulated around ₹74 lakh by now in fewer than 15 years.
This means if someone had invested ₹10,000 at the time of its launch, it would have swelled to ₹55,915 as on April 30, 2023.
As far as SIPs are concerned, if someone were investing ₹15,000 in regular doses in this scheme, the total wealth accumulation would have been ₹6,58,017 in three years by making an investment of ₹5,40,000 only.
In five years, by making a total investment of only ₹9 lakh via SIPs, one could have accumulated ₹12.54 lakh.
Likewise, if someone had invested ₹15,000 on a regular basis for 10 years, total investment would have been ₹18 lakh while the total wealth would have swelled to ₹over ₹35.92 lakh, giving an absolute return of around 100 percent.
|Tenure||Investment (Rs)||Wealth accumulation (Rs)||Difference (Rs)|
|3 years||5.4 Lakh||6,58,017||1,18,017|
|5 years||9 lakh||12,54,872||3,54,872|
|10 years||18 lakh||35,92,871||17,92,871|
|14 years 7 months||26.25 lakh||74,73,732||48,48,732|

And when we speak about the total returns since inception, the returns are even higher.
Let us suppose, if you were investing ₹15,000 in this scheme via SIPs on a regular basis since the scheme’s launch in 2008, the total wealth would have accumulated to nearly ₹74.73 lakh by investing only 26.25 lakh, giving an absolute return of 185 percent.
