As the name suggests, the rule is about 15s --- Rs 15,000 per month for 15 years with expectations of generating 15% returns.

As per Nippon India Mutual Fund, the 15x15x15 rule is one of the most basic rules for investing in mutual funds via the SIP route. It says that if you invest Rs 15,000 per month via SIP in an equity mutual fund that is capable of generating an average return of 15%, you are most likely to become a crorepati in 15 years.

On its website, Nippon MF explained that you choose to invest Rs 15,000 per month in a mutual fund for 15 years which is expected to generate returns at the rate of 15%. As per compound interest calculations, the amount you will receive after 15 years will be ~Rs 1 crore. The same compounding principle, when applied for another 15 years, increases the total corpus exponentially to ~Rs 10 crore.

Meanwhile, Motilal Oswal gives an example on its website. According to the brokerage, the rule follows a series of three 15s to help investors get 7-figure returns. As per the rule, if you invest ₹15000 per month for 15 years in a fund scheme that offers a 15% interest annually, you can gather ₹1 crore at the end of tenure. To make this investment, you only need a total investment of ₹27 lakhs, while you will earn ₹73 lakhs.

This is also due to the compounding phenomena, which is of utmost importance in MFs. Compounding usually leads to a small amount of investment into a larger one over a period of time. In simple words, AMFI explains that compounding is when the interest (or income) you earn is reinvested in the original corpus and the accumulated corpus continues to earn (& grow). Every time this happens, your investment keeps growing, paving the way for a systematic accumulation of money, multiplying over time.

However, Motilal also pointed out that although the interest rate is 15%, your investment can experience a 20% return in one year and -6 % in the other because of market fluctuations. The 15% is the assumed interest rate over the total investment period.

Experts guide that the earlier you begin your SIPs, the more you accumulate on your investment value in the future.

As of July 31, 2023, the net asset under management (AUM) is to the tune of Rs 46,37,564.6 crore.
