GETTING PERSONAL – Even the worst of SIPs would have given you more than your PPF returns

Regular investments in mutual fund equity schemes have been rewarding for investors in the last 15 years. Investments in equity schemes done through Systematic Investment Plans (SIPs) have outperformed traditional products such as fixed deposits and public provident fund (PPF). Tax-saving fixed deposits and PPF have returned a little over 9% every year in the last 20 years. Meanwhile, average returns in equity schemes through SIPs over a 15-year period have been 21.54% every year with the worst performer giving 13.71%.
