Gaining a crore through mutual funds sounds like a tough job but you can actually achieve it at ease in 15 years by paying even lesser than the quarter of 1 crore. You must understand that mutual funds come with different objectives and strategies and you can choose them according to your investment objective and risk bearing abilities.
Large-cap funds can provide 12-15% returns
Mid-cap funds can provide 14-16% returns
Small-cap funds can provide 16-18% returns
It is not mandatory that an equity mutual fund will provide the expected outcome. The returns depend on investment style and market conditions. In long tenure of 15%, the returns are generally adequate.
Coming back to the objective of 1 crore, you can achieve it if you invest a specific amount in the selected scheme.
For a scheme with 12% returns you need to invest Rs 20,000 a month
For a scheme with 15% returns you need to invest Rs 15,000 a month
For a scheme with 18% returns you need to invest Rs 11,000 a month
