To really get a big boost, Mathpal says an investor should increase her or his investment quarterly or yearly. In order to generate more returns and increase overall valuation, the investor should increase his/her investment share periodically, he said.

Even a 5 year investment with constant increasing share could help you meet your goal faster as compared to fixed contribution in a mutual fund,'' added Mathpal.
