If an investor starts investing early and goes for a long term investment, then it's a wonderful combination. When we talk of market-linked investments, then holding for longer periods does give an upper hand. Here we will discuss some of the leverages of long term investment along with examples.

Sensex was an all-time high in January 2019, and people who invested in stocks a decade ago when the markets crashed and held this long, reaped high profits. It's quite clear that holding the pitch for long did bring the money back home with good profits. It can be put in a way that an investment is just a test match, longer you stay, the better it is.

Long term investment options

Investors can invest money in insurance products like ULIPs or any other investment plans offered by the insurance companies.
