MutualFund

SIP

A Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) is a vehicle offered by mutual funds to help investor save regularly. It is just like a recurring deposit with the bank where investor can put small amounts at periodic intervals. Investing in a mutual fund through SIP allows participation in the equity markets systematically.

This is one of the more effective investment strategy for accumulating wealth in a disciplined manner over a long period. A specific amount will be invested for a chosen period at regular intervals. 

The minimum amount to be invested and the frequency of investment is usually monthly or quarterly.

Features of SIP
  • A specific amount is invested for a continuous period at regular intervals under this plan.
  • SIP is similar to a regular saving scheme like a recurring deposit. It is a method of investing a fixed sum regularly in a mutual fund.
  • SIP allows the investor to buy units on a given date every month. The investor decides the amount and also the mutual fund scheme.
  • While the investor's investment remains the same, more number of units can be bought in a declining market and less number of units in a rising market.
  • The investor automatically participates in the market swings once the option for SIP is made.
Benefits of Systematic Investment Plan
  • Saving a small sum of money regularly at an early age makes money work with greater power of compounding with significant impact on wealth accumulation.
  • SIP helps in averaging cost of acquiring units
  • It is very convenient. SIP can be operated by simply providing post dated cheques with the completed enrolment form or give ECS instructions. The cheques can be banked on the specified dates and the units credited into the investor's account.
  • It helps in creating wealth over a longer time period.
  • It makes investor disciplined in their savings.
