I think I am one of the earliest investors of mutual fund in India. I made my first investment in the year 1986 and have been investing since, reaping its rewards till date.
At the age of 34 when I got married my total investment was zero. Then I started monthly SIP of ₹500. Happy with my investment growing over time, I have now started investing ₹10,000 every month.
Bachpan se ma-baap paise bachana sikhaate hain. Unn paison ko invest karke, kamaana koi nahin sikhata... Picchle saal internet par mutual fund ke baare mein padha. Jhat se invest karna shuru kar diya!
I have a habit of spending. In April I realised, this way I'll never feel financially empowered. So I started investing ₹3000 through SIP on the 1st of every month. Now I know I have something to fall back on.
I come from a family where right from the beginning we are taught the importance of investing. So it wasn’t new for me. I just knew that I had to invest in mutual funds from the day I got my first income.
मुझे लगता था कि निवेश करने के लिए ढ़ेर सारे पैसे होने चाहिए। फिर ऑफिस की मैडम ने बताया कि सिर्फ ५०० रुपये भी हों तो SIP शुरू कर सकते हैं। उस दिन से मैंने निवेश करना शुरू किया।
My work is my passion but it doesn’t always pay much. My colleague suggested that I start investing early to have an additional income & that’s how I made my first investment 6 months ago.
"एक लड़की की शादी के लिए, माता-पिता सालों पैसा जोड़ते हैं। इसी लिए, जैसे ही मैंने जॉब शुरू की, मैंने अपनी पहली तनख्वाह से अपना पहला निवेश किया ताकि मैं अपनी शादी में खुद योगदान कर सकूँन और उनका भोज हल्का कर सकूँ।"
Once I started working, my father asked me to send ₹5000 back home every month as a contribution to the household expenses. Little did I know he was investing that money in SIP every month for my higher education.
I am a school teacher and most of the time I am the one giving lessons to kids. But the biggest learning for me came from my daughter when she started working for a finance company. Her first day at work was my first day of investment.
When I chose film-making as my career, my family was worried of my irregular income. I did my research and made sure I keep aside a part of my income every time to invest in mutual funds so they will have to worry less about my future.
I asked my 4 year old, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” “Pilot”, she exclaimed! Just after that, I made my first investment so I could collect enough to give flight to her dreams in the future.
Main har kaam soch samajh ke karta hun. Stock markets mein directly paisa daalna mujhe risky laga, toh finally last year mein apna pehla mutual fund investment kiya, kyunki mujhe yeh safer option laga.
