You have probably heard of 'SIP' before but if you haven't, here is everything you need
to get started on your wealth creation journey.
What is SIP?
SIP stands for Systematic Investment Plan. It is a Mutual Fund industry tool that encourages regular and disciplined investing without causing disruptions to your monthly budget.

‘WHY’ START A SIP
There are numerous reasons to start a SIP – here are the top ‘3’:
  • A Convenient and Flexible Investment Route
  • Disciplined Investing Leads to Higher Returns
  • Achieve Financial Goals

SIP is a convenient method that can help create wealth. Using this tool, you can invest as little as Rs. 500 on a monthly or quarterly basis. It does not disrupt your household budget.

You also have the flexibility of choosing your investment amount. The only rule - the investment amount should be in multiples of 500 i.e. when investing you can invest Rs. 500, Rs. 1000, Rs. 1500, Rs. 2000 so on and so forth.

This style of investing turns dreamers into disciplined investors.

You probably will ask ‘how much wealth investing Rs. 5000 per month can create?’ More than you realize!

In 1 year, you would have invested Rs. 60,000.

If you assume that the mutual fund in which you have invested has delivered 12% returns, then your investment is now worth Rs. 64,047, as you could have earned Rs. 4047 in returns.

In 2 years, you will have invested Rs. 1,20,000 and your investment value could be Rs. 1,36,216, which means you have earned Rs. 16,216 in returns.

Imagine how much your investment will be worth in 10 or 20 years and the number of financial goals this ‘little’ investment can help you fulfil.

Amount Invested 60,000 1,20,000 12,00,000
Returns Earned
(based on a 12% rate of return)
4,047 16,216 37,95,740
Investment Worth
(at the end of the year)
64,047 1,36,216 49,95,740

The above table is a hypothetical example that explain the concepts of SIP functioning concept. Past performance is no guarantee of future returns.

You probably have multiple goals that you want to achieve from going on luxurious vacations to buying your dream home to many more. Trying to generate sufficient funds to fulfil all these goals can feel overwhelming. It doesn’t have to be!

An effective method of achieving your goals is to break-up your big life dreams into smaller more achievable goals.

  • Begin by listing down your goals. For example, taking your family of 3 to Goa, paying for your daughter’s education and planning for your retirement.
  • Determine how much money you will need to fulfil these goals today. For example, taking your family of 4 to Goa will cost Rs. 1, 00, 000, paying for your daughter’s higher education will cost Rs. 3, 00, 000 and retiring comfortably based on your lifestyle will require Rs. 50, 00, 000.
  • Determine by when you will require the money to achieve these goals. For example, you will take your family to Goa in 1 year, you will need to pay for your daughter’s higher education in 5 years and you will need money for retirement in 15 years.
  • Determine the cost of achieving these dreams in the respective year. Use our SIP calculator to determine how much you need to invest to have enough money to fulfil your dreams at the right time. Click for SIP calculator
  • Start a SIP for each individual goal. You will find these big dreams easier to achieve.
    These are just some of the benefits of starting a SIP.

How SIP Can Help You Achieve Your Goals

SIP or systematic investment plan is a handy investment tool that can help you achieve your goals; but only if you know what are your goals and by when you need to accomplish them.

First, begin by listing down your goals.

For example, some potential goals may be taking a vacation, buying a car, purchasing a home, funding your child’s education, accumulating funds for your child’s marriage and ensuring a comfortable retirement.

Next, segregate these goals by when you need to accomplish them.

For example, you want to head off on a holiday in 6 months and purchase a car in 1 year. These are your short-term goals. Similarly, educating your children at the best institutions in 3-5 years is a medium-term goal while buying your dream home and retiring comfortably in 10-15 years are long-term goals.

Once you have a list of your goals and a date by when you want to achieve them, you have to ask yourself - are you on track to achieve each of them?

Yes! Maybe? No!

If your answer was ‘Yes’. Congratulations!

If your answer was ‘Maybe’ or ‘No’, do not worry, you can get back on track using our SIP calculator. The SIP calculator accounts for everything - financial goals, achievement dates, investment strategies and even, inflation. It will help you determine how much you need to invest in a mutual fund using SIP. It will even recommend the best mutual funds for SIP to achieve your goals i.e. if your goal is to save tax then it shows you a list of the best ELSS mutual funds.
