  • Compunding Power - Use the compounding effect to the max. Get the asset allocation and the time work for you. You need to invest for a sufficient duration in the right asset and in the right proportion of your invetments in totality.
  • Early Starter - Have great edge over all others just bystarting to save early is the time that matters not the amount of savings!! Altleast start small when you are not ready for big investments once you gain the confidence you can be a agressive investor...
  • Invest in Right Assets - Most people have every think right except the most important thing - the right asset class for investing. For long term investing - equities offer the highest returns, even after taking the tax benefits of other avenues into consideration. As seen above even a couple of % returns difference over a long term can make a lot of difference, compounded to your wealth. But one thing is very important - 'Score more or atleast equal runs' as the 'reqd. run rate', i.e inflation.
  • Never say No - Many people believe that they are saving the best they can and have nothing more. The fact is if you make small efforts you can still make substantial additions to your savings and networth. There is always an oppurtunity to take a chance... just be more carefull at the markets.
  • Invest Systematically - Possibly the best way to invest - especially for small investors, in equity MF schemes is through SIPs. You get the twin benefits of Rupee Cost Averaging and Automatic Timimg, meaning that the average purchase cost of units will be less and you will be purchasing less units at higher prices and more units at higher prices. In short, it is an ideal way to invest. Invest in a normal way whether it's the rising market, faling market or volatile market.
  • Money Doubler - Check the time taken by your investment to double. it will give you fair amount of idea about how your investments are performing. You can put surplus amounts at regular intervals to double, choosing the assets suited to your needs and risk tolerance. by doing this frequently you would enjoy a healhty cash flow and accumulate wealth over time.
Even bulk investments should ideally be avoided for long investment horizons. Break down your investments and invest more regularly is the mantra.
