They say, ‘the journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step.’ Systematic Investment Plans work on the same philosophy.

An SIP is a simple, convenient and disciplined way to meet your financial goals. It basically allows you to make the most of the growth potential of mutual funds, by investing calculated amounts periodically.

There are three important principles of SIP:

1. Start Early

Compounding is a powerful force in this facility, which essentially means growth upon growth. By investing a fixed amount every month it’s not just the amount invested every month that has the potential to grow, but the growth on the previous monthly installments as well.

Example:
  • January
  • January Growth + February
  • January Growth + February Growth + March

The earlier you start, the longer you can invest, the greater you can earn.

2. Invest regularly

It is advised that you continue the race like a tortoise – Maintain a consistent pace and not stop. This can help you manage market volatility, as it lets you average out the cost of your investments over time (A concept called rupee cost averaging).

3. Invest the right amount

The big question that arises is how can you calculate the right SIP amount? All you have to do is answer three simple questions:

  • a. What is my goal? (Example: To buy a dream house that would cost me Rs.4000000)
  • b. How much do I expect to earn? (Example: I expect a 12.5% rate of return per annum)
  • c. By when, do I want to reach my goal? (Example: I see myself buying this house in 15 years)

Once you answer these questions, our SIP calculator will help arrive at the right amount for you that can help you achieve your goals.
