SIP stands for systematic Investment Plan. an SIP is a smart way of investing in Mutual funds. it is an approach of investing in preset fixed amount at regular intervals (monthly, quarterly, ect.). SIP investments helps in building corpus for future wih planned appoach towards saving and investments.
An SIP is a flxible and easy investment plan. your money is auto ebited from your bank account and invested ino a specific mutual fund scheme you are allocated certain n umber of units based on the ongoing mnarket rte (called NAV or net asset value) for the day. every time you invest money, aditional units of he scheme are purchased at the market rate and added to your accoiunt hence units are bought at different rates and investors benifit from rupee-cost averaging an the power of compounding
with volatile market, most investors remain skeptical about the best time to invest and try to time their entry into the market. SIP investment allows you to opt out of the guessing game. since you are regular investor, your money fetches more units when the price is low and lesser when the price is high. During volatile period, it may allow you to achieve a lower average cost per unit.
Albert Einstein once said, “Compound intrest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it...he who doesn’t...pays it.” The rule for compounding is simple - the sooner you start investing, the more time your monry has to grow.
If you started investing Rs, 10,000 a month on your 40th birthday, in 20 years time you would have put aside Rs. 24 lakhs. if that investment grew by an average of 7% a year, it would be worth Rs. 52.4 lakhs when you reach 60.
However, if you start investing 10 years earlier, your Rs. 10,000 each month add up to Rs. 36 lakhs over 30 years. assuming the same average annual growth of 7%, you would have Rs.1.22 Cr. on your 60th birthday-more than double the amount you would have recieved if you had started ten years later!

A systematic investment plan (SIP) is a way in which an investor invests a fixed amount of money on preset intervals for a specified period. whereas, in a lumpsum investment, an investor invests his money in one go. but it is very difficult for an investor to time the market. SIP helps you in reducing market volatility as it works on ‘Dollar cost averaging’. An investor gets more units when the NAV is low and less when the NAV is high, and eventually the cost will average out. We will expalin in below example why SIPis better than lumpsum investing.
Let’s assume an investor invested Rs. 36,000 in BSE Sensex in january 2008 and another investor startedSIP of Rs. 1000 per month in BSE Sensex. The 2008 crisis dragged the market below 9000 in February 2009. it is evident from the chart that the lumpsum investor recovred his money only after 3 years. while the other investor, who started the SIP, made ~ Rs. 50,800 during the same period because of ‘Dollar cost averaging’.
The SIP investor was able to make money because he was getting more number of units when the market was falling and when the market started recovering he started making profits because his average cost was low.
