Bottom Line

The historical performance is not necessarily an indicator of future returns, so don't take ETFs/ Index Funds as an assurance to get double-digit returns every year.

Investing in ETFs is a way for long-term wealth creation, and it requires consistent investment through SIP. 

A monthly Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) helps you average down the investment cost, and you don't need to worry about the highs and lows of the market.
