Economic growth is among the most vital factors affecting the quality of life that people lead in a country. Three variables that measure the growth of an economy are Income, Saving and Investment.

Using interpretative approach viz., objectives, sample, research methodology and results of the study have been taken for further enquiry. This study constructs a robust conceptual framework for the researchers by meticulously analysing the experimental studies on investor behaviour in different countries.
