How to Use a Lumpsum Calculator for Mutual Funds

Lumpsum Calculator

Financial calculators are an important tool of financial planning. One of the most popular calculators in personal finance planning is the lumpsum calculator. You can understand the lumpsum calculator in terms of two applications.

•    Lumpsum calculator can be used to determine, how much a fixed corpus invested today would be worth after a certain number of years and assuming a certain CAGR returns over this period.

•    The other application of the lumpsum calculator is actually to look at the above situation in reverse. In practice, we need to know how much corpus we need today to meet our future goals. Lumpsum calculator can be use for goal planning also.

Lumpsum calculator and how much your money will grow

The table captures how much a fixed corpus of Rs.500,000 today will grow at the end of different time periods. The MF portfolio is expected to appreciate at 14% CAGR.

At the end of X Years

Corpus of

Will grow to

5 years



10 years



15 years



20 years



25 years




The lumpsum calculator clearly shows how a fixed corpus grows on its own over different periods of time. Clearly, the longer you hold, the better it is.

Lumpsum calculator for goal planning

A more practical way is to use a lumpsum calculator for goal planning. For example, if you target to reach a corpus of Rs.1 crore after 20 years in mutual funds at a CAGR of 14%, what would be the initial investment requirement. Here again, the lumpsum calculator can show you how much you need to start off with today.

For example, if you want to reach a target of Rs.1 crore, as in the above case, you must start off with a corpus of Rs.727,617 and invest it in mutual funds with CAGR potential of 14% annualized and hold on for 20 years. The lumpsum calculator provides financial planning analytics both ways.

Merit in Buying Digital Gold - How to buy Digital Gold

Digital Gold

Gold prices have moved lower on prospects of sharp GDP growth, which takes away the safe haven preference. The same is the case with silver, although demand patters are largely industrial.  In the last couple of years, Indian investors realized the merits of having gold in the portfolio as a defensive strategy. However, there is still confusion on how to buy Digital Gold.

The simplest way is to buy gold jewellery or gold coins. But storage is a big worry here and physical charges can also be high. The other 3 options are Sovereign gold bonds, Gold ETFs and Digital gold. Here is what investors need to know about the power of digital gold. Remember, digital gold is a safe and secure way of holding gold in digital fractions with seamless transaction processing. 

Digital gold brings some key advantages

Here is the digital gold edge for investors.

•    It is convenient to buy and sell digital gold. If you have a 5paisa  Demat Account, you just need to log-in to buy/sell digital gold. There is no size restriction, in that you can even buy 0.35 grams of gold, unlike the sovereign gold bonds and gold ETFs.

•    Digital gold is affordable. Firstly, it allows buying fractional gold of as low as 10 grams. Digital gold also works out cost-effective as there are no making charges involved. 

•    Unlike buying gold from jewelers, you don’t worry about gold purity. All the gold is certified by an official accredited agency as being 24-carat gold with 995 purity.

•    Digital gold is very liquid. You can log into your 5paisa account and buy or digital gold at any point of time. There are virtually no restrictions on buying and redemption.

•    Finally,  you may wonder as to where is the gold backing digital gold? The assurance is that digital gold is stored in segregated and guarded vaults. In short, digital gold can be converted to physical gold at any time subject to charges.

LIC may split its proposed IPO into 2 tranches


It has been widely reported that LIC may consider splitting its proposed IPO into two tranches. In the recent week, the IPO response was starkly weaker than the previous week since liquidity for most retail and HNI investors was stuck in previous week’s IPOs. This has raised questions about the ability of the market to absorb a massive IPO in one go.

The IPO market has seen solid action in the current fiscal. Between April and July, the IPO markets managed to raise close to Rs.28,000 crore. August alone is expected to raise another Rs.30,000 crore taking the total IPO fund raising to Rs.60,000 crore by end of August. Then there are some mega IPOs lined up like the Rs.16,600 crore Paytm IPO, Rs.6,500 crore Policybazaar, Rs.5,500 crore Bajaj Energy and the Rs.4,000 crore Nykaa IPO. DIPAM is concerned that, in the midst of this deluge, doing the entire LIC IPO in one shot may be tough.

There are two proposals for LIC IPO that the government is mulling. Firstly, there is a proposal to split the IPO into two tranches of Rs.35,000-40,000 each and space them with a gap of 2-3 months. The second option is to get the cornerstone or anchor investors to put in large bids ahead of the IPO to enthuse the markets. DIPAM is currently evaluating all possible options.

LIC IPO does not have to only compete with private names. There is the massive BPCL stake sale, which will also absorb a lot of liquidity from the market. Even the Air India divestment is likely to impact institutional liquidity. The government, obviously, does not want to get into a situation wherein the market is unprepared for an IPO of that size.
