A Systematic Investment plan (SIP) can be the key to your happy retirement life. Ideally, when you plan to invest for a long-term, SIP is considered to be the most efficient way. SIP is a process of wealth creation where a small amount of money is invested over regular intervals of time i.e., monthly /quarterly. And this investment is invested in the stock market generates returns over time. The amount required for starting a SIP is as low as INR 500, thus making SIP’s a great tool for smart investments, where one can start investing a small amount from a young age.
The two major benefits of SIPs are— Power of Compounding and rupee cost averaging. Rupee cost averaging helps an individual to average out the cost of an asset purchase. In a systematic investing, the purchase of units is done over a long period and these are spread out equally over monthly intervals (usually). Due to the investment being spread out over time, the investment is made into the stock market at different price points giving the investor the benefit of averaging cost.
In the case of compound interest, the interest amount is added to the principal, and interest is calculated on the new principal (old principal plus gains). This process continues every time. Since the mutual funds in the SIP are in instalments, they are compounded, which adds more to the initially invested sum.
