Investors prefer SIPs, here's why

Posted On Tuesday, Oct 27, 2020


You’ve probably heard the phrase “Mutual Fund Sahi Hai”, and have wondered whether you should start your own investment in Mutual Funds through a SIP.

If the current pandemic has taught us anything, it is that there is nothing worse than being unprepared. Investors now realize that it is imperative to save and grow their hard earned money.

A SIP allows you to invest a fixed amount regularly in a Mutual Funds scheme. The timing of starting a SIP, especially one planned for a longer period mitigates the risk of short term market fluctuation on investments.

Here are just some of the benefits:

Low Minimum Investment:
You can start your investment with as low as Rs. 500/- in a SIP (Systematic Investment Plan) or even as low as Rs.100 in a Quantum Mutual Fund SIP.
Brings discipline:
You can choose your SIP investment cycle; be it daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly. This brings financial discipline to your investment and savings for your future goals.
Avoid timing markets:
Once you invest through Mutual Funds, you can leave it to the fund managers to make the desired changes to the scheme portfolio. You don’t need to time the markets and decide where to invest.
Achieve goals:
A Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) will help you make the most of the compounding effect. You can achieve your financial goals like wealth creation, child's marriage or retirement.
Power of compounding:
Your investment will generate earnings from the principal amount invested and also the subsequent returns earned over the period. Make the most of compounding to achieve long term goals.
Rupee cost averaging:
A SIP buys more units when the market is low and less when market is high, bringing down your average cost per unit. This enables you to mitigate the risk of short term market fluctuations and as a result gain more over the long term.
Mutual funds brings you the advantage of diversification by combining different assets such as equity, stocks or bonds or gold.

SIPs an investment for the long term:

Start building your wealth to match your investment goal: buying a 2 wheeler, funding your child’s education or planning for retirement. The table below shows the effect of compounding with just a monthly SIP of Rs. 1000 at an assumed rate of return of 12%.
