Having financially secure is a dream for many. However, you can likely achieve it via disciplined investment via SIP in this index fund. Read on to find out more about this fund.

It is quite often evident that due to a lack of financial literacy, people find life after retirement quite insecure. According to the Max Life Insurance’s India Retirement Study 2021 report, 45% of people would depend on children for retirement support. Almost 56% believe that savings would be exhausted within 10 years of retirement.

A retirement is a certain event, and there is a good chance that you will live on even after you retire. As a consequence, you will incur expenditures long after you retire.

In this case, the cost might be both anticipated and unexpected. Anticipated costs include home expenses, discretionary expenses, children’s school or college expenses, EMI, savings, and so on. Unexpected costs, on the other hand, include things like medical costs, a fund to compensate for job loss, and so on.

As a result, it is critical to have a retirement plan in place to cover these costs. When you hear the phrase retirement planning, your mind may race with ideas that might land you in a pickle.

Having said that, investing Rs 5,000 each month via Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) in UTI Nifty 50 Index Fund for 30 years accumulates to Rs 1.5 crore assuming it earns a 12% Compounded Annual Growth Rate.
