SYSTEMATIC INVESTMENT PLAN

The popularity of SIPs or Systematic Investment Plans has gone up in the last couple of years. However, many investors, including those who have already made SIP investments in mutual funds, are often confused about SIPs. So, here’s a quick guide to SIPs and how you can use them to create wealth over a long period to achieve your long-term financial goals.

Why should you SIP?
One, it imparts financial discipline to your life. Two, it helps you to invest regularly without wrestling with market mood, index level, etc. For example, if you are supposed to put a fixed amount every month in a mutual fund scheme, you need to find time to do it. When you have the time, you might be worried about market conditions and think of postponing your investments. Or you might be thinking of investing more if the mood is optimistic. SIP puts an end to all these predicaments.the money is automatically invest regularly in the scheme without any effort on your part.

What are the other benefits of SIPs?
SIPs help you to average your purchase cost and maximise returns. When you invest regularly over a period irrespective of the market conditions, you would get more units when the market is low and less units when the market is high. This averages out the purchase cost of your mutual fund units.
How much money do I need to start an SIP?
You can start investing in a mutual fund scheme via SIP with a minimum of Rs 500.
Can I customise my SIP?
Yes, you can. Though the most popular SIP is investing a fixed amount every month, investors can customise the way they put money via SIPs. Many fund houses allow investors to invest monthly, bi-monthly and fortnightly, according to their convenience.Apart from this, Step-up SIPs allow investors to increase the SIP amount periodically. ‘Alert SIP’ is another form of the regular systematic investment plan which sends an alert to the investor to buy more when the markets are down.

In case of the ‘perpetual SIPs,’ investors don’t have to choose the end date of the SIP. Once the goal is met, the investors can stop the SIP by sending a written communication to the fund house.
