After using LXME’s eye opening Retirement Calculator, she realized she needs a whooping 8.84 crores when she retires! She immediately starts a SIP of Rs, 15,922. She recommends the calculator to her 25 year old sister who needs the same amount at the time of retirement, but started with a SIP of 7,877. Why the difference between Mansi and her sister? That’s because of compounding. When you start early, you can set aside small amounts because you will have more time for your money to grow.
