Making money is always seems hard. It may be, but when it comes to building long term wealth we can build it by investing small amounts from our monthly income and taking the advantage of compounding.
Today I’m gonna tell you how you can be in the richest 1% of the world population. You might be wondering is this some kind of joke, people work hard all their lives and still, they can not fight out money problems.
Don’t worry all your doubts will get cleared in a few minutes. Let’s begin.
Have you heard of the stock market? probably yes
Do you invest in it? probably no
Stock markets are the greatest investment class rather than any other investment, be it gold, bonds, fixed deposits, real estate. but we park our money only on these options.
|Commodity||Amount Invested In 1979||Value in 2019(approx)||CAGR(compounded annual growth rate)|
|Real Estate||100||-(no exact data available)||-|
|Stock Market(Sensex)||100||39,000||17%(including dividends)|
If you want to read about what is stock market and how does it work you can read here.
stock market Index(Sensex and nifty) gives us a return of around 15 to 17%.
And if you are ready to put in some hard work and find some good companies to invest. then your return can go up to 24 to 25 %.
Now comes the question but how to make 100 crores??
Suppose your age is 25 and you have an investible surplus of 10 lakh rupees. If you invest 10 lakh rupees in the stock market and be able to generate a return of 24 to 25 % in 30 years these 10 lakhs will become 100 crores!!
Don’t believe me. Just do the math and see 10 lakh rupees compounded for 30 years become 100 crores.
|In first year||10,00,000|
|After 3 years||20,00,000|
|After 6 Years||40,00,000|
|After 9 Years||80,00,000|
|After 12 Years||1,60,00,000|
|After 15 Years||3,20,00,000|
|After 18 Years||6,40,00,000|
|After 21 Years||12,50,00,000|
|After 24 Years||25,00,00,000|
|After 27 Years||50,00,00,000|
|After 30 Years||1,00,00,00,000|
Now your next question is the value of money must have gone down after 30 years. Prices of all the things have raised due to inflation. yes you’re right but then also these 100 crore value 30 years later is also near 16 crore rupees
and that is sufficient enough to put you in the top 1% of the world’s richest people.
But I Don’t have 10 lakh to Invest, Nor I have the Knowledge about Stock Market? What Should I Do?
No Worries I am gonna also share a way of how to make an investible surplus of 10 lakh
