When you get your first salary, your parents will ask you to start a recurring deposit in a post office or a bank. Similarly, your investment in mutual funds via a SIP works as a recurring deposit. Above all, SIP is a disciplined way of investing a specific amount in mutual funds monthly, quarterly or weekly. Apart from SIP, you can also invest in mutual funds one time (Lumpsum Investing).
1) Top-Up SIP or Step Up SIP: In a SIP, you invest every month a fixed amount. While, in a top-up SIP plan, you can increase your SIP amount every year. Moreover, you can choose to either increase the investment in terms of percentage or a fixed amount.
For Example, 1st year 5000*12 = 60000. Next year you increase your monthly flow by 10%, so in the 2nd year, your investment will be 5500*12= 66,000, 3rd year 6000*12=72000 and so on.
Further, this type of SIP helps you achieve two things; firstly, you will reach your goal faster and secondly, you can start will a smaller amount & yet achieve your target amount.
2) Perpetual SIP: The SIP under this plan will continue till you decide to stop the SIP. When you start investing, the mutual fund company asks you to select the tenure of your investment from 1 year to perpetual. Though, you can cancel or pause your SIP anytime.
3) Flexible SIP: In contrast with the above types of SIP’s in this plan g you have the flexibility to change your investment amount depending upon your cash flows. You can either increase or decrease the same provided you inform 7-10 days before your instalment date.
4) Trigger SIP: This plan allows an investor to shift his fund from one fund; to another upon pre-defined trigger points. The trigger can either be based on the market level, NAV based or time-based.
1) Rupee Cost Average: In a stock market the stocks are volatile; the price movement is not a one-way street, as the price of a stock goes up n down due to various direct or indirect reasons. So, when you invest in mutual funds via a SIP, you accumulate units of mutual funds on a specific date every month.
Example: Mr Mehta is investing Rs.5000 every month starting from Sep’20 for 3 years.
|05 / 09 / 2020||5000||20.42||244.88|
|05 / 10/ 2020||5000||21.67||230.73|
|05 / 11 / 2020||5000||19.47||256.81|
|05 / 12 /2020||5000||20.22||247.28|
|05 / 01 / 2021||5000||21.89||228.41|
|Total||25000||Average NAV: 20.73||Accumulated Units: 1208.11|
Total Investment: 25000, Average NAV cost: 20.73, Accumulated Units: 1208.11
Now suppose the NAV in October 2021 is 25.23 then the market value of his fund will be Rs.30480/- You can notice that each month the nav is different and Mr Mehta is accumulating units across the different market cycles.
2) Flexibility: When you plan to invest via SIPs, you get the flexibility to invest in terms of tenure as well as your investment amount. Further, you can begin to invest with as low as Rs 500. However, in some mutual fund companies, the SIP amount is as low as Rs 100. You can choose your desired period for investment and can stop the same when you wish to.
3) Discipline Investing: In addition, to the above advantage SIP investing in mutual funds creates a disciplined approach. You get into the habit of first investing than spending rather than spending first and saving later.
When you plan your investment, you will want to know how much return will you get in return. The returns on investment in a mutual fund are not guaranteed, but you get an approximate value using the SIP Calculator. Further, the mutual fund SIP calculator will help you determine your future investment value based on certain assumptions.
Step1: Firstly, you have to mention the amount of money you are willing to invest every month.
Step2: Secondly, Your next step is to mention your investment time frame.
Step3: Third, mention your expected return on your investment. Though returns are subject to market, you can take approx returns for the calculations.
Step4: Lastly, enter the inflation value to know your inflation-adjusted return.
Step5: Once you input your data in the above steps, you can check your calculation.
M = A [ (1+i)^n-1 ] * (1+i)/i
M: is the amount you get at maturity
A: is the SIP investment amount
I: is the compounded rate of return
n: is the duration of investment (in months)
r: is the expected rate of return
For instance, assume you want to invest ₹1,000 per month for two years at an expected rate of return of 12%.
M = 1000*[(1+0.01) ^24 – 1] * (1+0.01)/0.01) = ₹1,08,973
