Invest regularly and systematically for long-term wealth creation
28-Feb-2011 •Research Desk
I am 37 years old and plan to create a corpus of Rs 2 crore by the time I turn 55. I can currently invest Rs 6,000-Rs 7,000 a month. Can I achieve my target?

The way to wealth creation is to invest regularly in equity as an asset class through mutual funds. If you invest Rs 7,000 a month for the next 19 years and the investment earns an annualised 15 per cent, you will accumulate a corpus of Rs 77 lakh, which is way below what you desire. To reach your target of Rs 2 crore, you need to invest Rs 27,500 a month in a portfolio of funds that earn an annualised 15 per cent, which is possible.
