Sensex annualised shareholder return now at 14.9% since inception

“Economic recovery in India getting a firmer toehold across multiple sectors, rising vaccination hopes and benign global liquidity have meant a continuation of the market rally. While the focus will now be on earnings performance and the upcoming budget, the Sensex crossing the 50,000 mark does remind you of the power of long-term investing - an annualised total shareholder return of 14.9% since the index’s inception in 1986," said Nitin Sharma, Director Research, Fidelity International.
