Hit PAUSE instead of STOP on your SIP today, for a Secure Tomorrow

Posted On Tuesday, Oct 27, 2020


Times are tough. The lockdown may have curtailed your earnings, and the future is uncertain. We understand that it may be time to tap into savings and we want to help.

Quantum Mutual Fund gives you the option to PAUSE your SIP.

Pausing your SIP will help you tide over urgent cash needs, without hampering your future financial goals too much.

As per Nielson's PGIM Survey, it is estimated that 1 in 5 Indians are unprepared for retirement and do not factor inflation in their retirement plan.

Let’s consider this hypothetical example of investor Ajay who has goal of saving for his retirement.

Assume he has availed a SIP option of investing Rs.2000 per month at an assumed rate of return of 12%. He has three choices: CONTINUE, PAUSE, DISCONTINUE or REDEEM his SIP

DetailsDiscontinues or Redeems full amountSIP PAUSED but retains corpusSIP Continues

Total Amount Invested1,20,0001,20,0007,20,000

Note: The table is for illustrative purposes only. Investments through SIP is subject to market risk and does not assure a profit or returns or protection against a loss in downturn market.

If Ajay is in need of funds, he should PAUSE further contributions to the SIP, however retain the corpus to the extent possible, so that he is able to grow his wealth for the future goals.

Top 5 reasons why investors should continue their SIPs

Brings discipline

Helps you invest in a phased and organized manner

Avoid timing markets

You don’t need to time to markets and waste time deciding where to invest

Rupee cost averaging

SIP buys more units when the market is low and less when market is high, bringing down your average cost per unit.

Power of Compounding

Make the most of compounding to achieve long term goals

Achieve goals

Diversify your portfolio to meet any goals – long-term, short-term, tax-saving or emergency.

If there is anything, the current pandemic has taught us, it is about planning for our future. There is nothing worse than being unprepared. Investors now realize that it is imperative to protect and grow their hard earned money. Staying invested in your SIPs is critical to reap the maximum benefits of any market condition.

Give a boost to your goals and continue your SIPs.
