Like all magics, the magic of compounding must be seen to believe it. Investing consistently over a long period of time can grow to become a vast amount of wealth.

Sample this. If someone were investing 8,000 a month consistently since the launch of Quant Mid Cap mutual fund on March 20, 2001, the accumulated wealth would have grown to more than one crore.

Since inception, this mutual fund scheme has given a CAGR (%) of 12.88 percent as on November 30, 2022. This means if someone had invested 10,000, it would have grown to 1,38,451 by now.

But when you keep investing a small SIP (systematic investment plan) of 8,000 every month, the mutual fund scheme would have given a compound annual growth return (CAGR) of 12.85 percent per annum, thus accumulating a whopping 1.14 crore by now.

 Tenor Total amount invested After CAGR (Rs) 5 years ₹4,80,000 8,28,594 10 years ₹9,60,000 24,28,712 15 years ₹14,40,000 43,81,170 20 years ₹19,20,000 89,76,806 Since inception ₹20,88,000 1,14,16,300

[Based on CAGR as shown by AMFI for past 5 and 10 years, and 12.85% (i.e., returns since inception) for other tenors]

As one can see in the table above, the systematic investment plan (SIP) of 8,000 when invested for 5 years can swell to 8,28,594 after investing 4,80,000, giving a return of 20.04 percent.

Likewise, when you continue to make an investment for 10 years, the accumulated sum would have grown to 24,28,712 after investing 9,60,000, thus giving a CAGR of 16.38 percent.

Similarly, by investing only 14,40,000 over a period of 15 years, the investment would have grown to 43,81,170, giving a compound annual growth return of 12.85 percent.

And in 20 years, an investment of 19,20,000 would have grown to 89,76,806 and since inception – an investment of 20,88,000 would have swelled to 1,14,16,300.
