How to become Crorepati?
Systematic Investment Plan

Inflation reduces the purchasing power year by year & increases the cost of goods and services. We should look for an investment vehicle which can provide a higher return over & above inflation. You can protect yourself from the effect of inflation with the help of a diversified portfolio of various asset classes like direct equities, mutual funds, real estate, debt, cash & gold.

Value of money/purchasing power is decreasing every year because of Inflation (Inflation assumed at 6%)

Year Amount
1 1,00,000
2 94,000
3 88,360
4 78,075
5 73,390
6 68,987
7 64,848
8 60,957
9 57,299
10 53,862

Cost of product & services are increasing every year:

Let’s take a simple example: if you are planning for your Children’s higher education which currently cost Rs. 5 lacs & money will be required by your child after a period of 15 years.

Let’s assume cost of education is increasing by 8% per annum. How much money will be required by your child after a period of 15 years from now??

Your child will require a sum of Rs. 15.86 lacs approximately.

Hence, whenever you are looking to buy a product to achieve the above mentioned goal, keep tax & inflation in mind. You need to calculate the net yield post deduction of inflation & taxes.

You need to understand that whether the return is positive OR negative, if you take inflation & tax into account.

If you fall into a tax bracket of 30% and inflation is 6% PA then your require rate of return would be 8.57%. This would be the minimum rate of return, you should be looking for in order to keep the value of your money intact.


I have had never invested money in equity. However, I have been advised to start investing money in equities by Mutual Fund SIP. Now I know, how to take advantage from the equity as an asset class. Thanks for the great advice.

The simplicity & clarity in the approach adopted by financial café is remarkable. Their step-up approach is very pragmatic and easy to implement. I found portfolio rebalancing generating better returns as you put more money in equity when share market are lower level and withdraw money when markets are at their peak.
