Mutual funds offer an individual to invest with small amounts at regular intervals which is suitable for all individuals with different income levels. Through the option of Systematic Investment Plan (SIP), an investor can invest a sum of money of at least Rs 500 periodically, monthly or quarterly. There is no upper limit specified so you can invest as much as you want.

Every individual has a different type of risk capacity, while his risk appetite changes as an individual grow old. Individuals, who are at an early stage of earning, have a high-risk capacity as compared to mid-earning or pre-retirement and retirement stage investors. So, investors with high-risk capacity can invest the amount in equity-related schemes in their early stage and further, can shift some proportion to debt once they get decent returns from the equity markets.
