What is meant by SIP?
An SIP is a smart and easy way to invest in Mutual Funds. SIP allows you to invest a fixed amount on a monthly basis. It is a planned approach towards investments that helps you develop a discipline of regular investing and create more wealth over the long term.
How does it work?
Let us check how an SIP works with an example. Say you are starting an SIP of Rs. 1000 in a Mutual Fund on 1st date. Then on 1st of every month Rs. 1000 will be auto-debited from your bank account and invested in the fund.
For every instalment, you will receive units of the fund that is added to your account. These units are purchased at different NAVs depending upon the NAV on the 1st of every month.
Hence, investors starting an SIP benefit from both compounding and lesser risk.
What is compounding?
Compounding refers to a simple rule - the sooner you begin investing, the more your money grows with time. Let us understand this with an example.
Kishore started investing Rs. 5000 in SIP at the age of 30. He planned to invest till his retirement at 60. Assuming returns of 15% per year, by the age of 60 Kishore will have total amount of 3.5 crores.
Ramesh started investing Rs. 10000 in SIP at the age of 40. Assuming the same returns and retirement age, he will have an amount of 1.5 crores.
Even though Kishore is investing a smaller amount every month he has created more than twice of Ramesh’s wealth by starting early.
