Greetings from PenguWIN:
PenguWIN wishes you a wonderful Vinayagar Chaturthi !!!
There is a sense of negativity in the market with investors doubting whether Indian Equities as an asset class has lost its mojo. Returns from lumpsum investments done 3 years ago, SIPs that are 4 to 5 years old are close to zero or even negative.
Will Indian Equities Deliver? The answer is a resounding “Yes”, Stay the course and Equities will deliver. As long as businesses thrive and make profits (Automobile sector woes are a passing phenomenon), you can be rest assured that equity investments will be able to deliver higher returns than any other asset class as picturised below.
Instead of being verbose I have attached charts based on actual data that will help increase your confidence level and conviction in equity. I have picked funds that have a minimum of 10 years history and not the best performers (to make the charts look better)
- 10 Jan 2008 was the all-time high reached by Sensex – 21206. Investment done at this point as Lumpsum is depicted. On 27 Oct 2008 Sensex reached a low of 7697. i.e. 64% down from high on 10 Jan 2008
- Lumpsum investment of 1 Lakh on 4 Jul 2014 and 10,000/- SIP per month starting Jul 2014
- Advancing the SIP start date (10K per month) from Jan 2013 instead of Jul 2014.
