Shweta: I wish I was a Millionaire. I could have crores of rupees at my fingertips, and I could do whatever I want.
Seema: Agreed we could have had so much fun.
Shweta: but we can’t. There is no way we can earn that much with our salaried income.
Seema: That isn’t true. We can also have crores of rupees by investing smartly.
Shweta: I don’t believe it. How is that possible?
Seema: Well, it is quite possible and all it asks for is some patience, dedication, and consistency.
Shweta: That sounds interesting. Please tell me more.
Seema: There are different ways to invest over a period of time to achieve your goals and targets. One such way is the 15-15-15 rule to accumulate a corpus of 1 crore. you can achieve this by being dedicated, consistent, and patient towards investing.
Shweta: If these things can get me 1 crore, I am ready to start with this for sure.
Seema: Okay, let me explain this rule to you in detail,
What is the 15-15-15 Rule?
– This is one of the ways that help you target a corpus of 1 Crore at the end of your investment tenure. Under this rule, the first 15 stands for the monthly investment that you need to make. That is, your monthly SIP amount will be Rs. 15,000.
– The second one stands for your investment tenure of 15 years i.e., to achieve the mentioned goal of 1 crore, you need to invest 15000 every month for 15 years.
– And the last one stands for 15% which is you need to invest the mentioned amount for the said tenure in an investment instrument that will target an average of 15% returns per annum.
Seema: Now, in your mind, you might have a question about where to invest in order to get a 15% return p.a. right?
Shweta: Yes, the exact question came to my mind!
Seema: Yeah! I can read your mind 😜
Where to invest?
As we have seen earlier, we need to earn 15% p.a. on average so, in order to achieve that you need to invest in equity-related instruments as they target returns around 12%-15% p.a. in the longer term.
Then what are the ways to invest in equity-related investment instruments?
You can invest through mutual funds or directly. Mutual funds are one of the investment instruments through which you can get the benefit of professional fund management at a minimal cost. And you can start your investments in mutual funds with as low amount as Rs.100 and get the optimum benefit of diversification. As mutual funds are professionally managed by fund managers any common person who doesn’t have much knowledge can also invest in the same.
While Investing in equity directly needs adequate knowledge and analytical skills in order to invest in the right stock and also time to track the market.
Equity mutual funds are a type of investment fund that pools money from multiple investors to buy stocks (shares) in various companies. When you invest in an equity mutual fund, you essentially own a portion of the entire portfolio of stocks held by the fund.
The value of your investment in the fund grows based on the performance of the underlying stocks held by the fund. Overall, equity mutual funds can be a good option for investors looking to participate in the stock market and potentially earn inflation-beating returns over time.
However, in India, there are more than 2500 mutual fund schemes, and it might be difficult for a common person to choose the best-suited mutual fund for themselves. Don’t worry LXME’s got you covered!

One should invest in equity mutual funds for the long term as the markets are volatile in the short term.
To summarize what we learned today, by simply investing 15000 every month for 15 years in Equity based mutual funds that target a return of 15% p.a., you can aim at becoming a crorepati at the end of your investment horizon. Be consistent, Stay invested and by investing dedicatedly.
