SIP calculator is one of the best tools for effective financial planning.

The SIP calculator requires some basic inputs like investment amount, the frequency of investing (weekly, monthly, quarterly) and period of investing (additional inputs like inflation and expected market returns will give a more realistic picture).

A similar calculation with a goal in mind can also be made to determine the amount one should invest in a SIP to reach there. The entire calculation of SIP returns is mentioned below. Take a look!
The below calculation is based on the above-mentioned values. Those are-
Monthly Investment: ₹ 1,000
Investment Period: 10 years
The first thing that you need to do is to select an amount you wish to invest monthly. This amount should be chosen considering various factors like- your Financial goals, your current earnings and your fixed savings. Once you are sure of the amount you can easily start to invest. Moreover, the minimum amount of invest in SIP is as less as INR 500. In the below example, the amount chosen is INR 1,000.
When making a SIP investment, you should know the number of years you can invest to achieve a certain financial goal. For example: if I started investing at the age of 24 with a goal of buying a new house, I would estimate the time of investment to be 5 years and calculate the SIP returns accordingly. In the below example, the time of investment is chosen as 10 years.
Then comes, the average inflation rate and the growth rate of the market in the years to come till you fulfil your goal. As per market resources, the average inflation rate can be taken around 4-5% p.a. and the growth rate can be taken upto 12-14% p.a. However, one can enter their own assumptions also. In this example, the inflation and growth rate are pre-filled as 5% and 14% respectively.
Now, you get the know most awaited result of SIP calculator. Taking the above values into consideration, you get to know the SIP returns you will make in the estimated time and what is the net profit you earn. Here, by investing a total of INR 1,20,000, the total earning is INR 1,94,966. Therefore, the net profit of a person investing INR 1000 monthly for 10 years is
INR 74,966 (refer the image below).

One of the major Benefits of SIP (Systematic Investment Plan) is the Power of Compounding. What is it? With the effect of compounding, the interest earned becomes a part of the base capital and the subsequent interest is evaluated on the new increased capital value. Unlike simple interest, compounding leads to an exponential growth of money. Also, the compounding effect increases as the investment tenure increases.
|Parameter||SIP Investment Amount||SIP Investment Tenure||Rate of Interest||Returns Received||Total Gains|
|Simple Interest||100||5 years||10%||50||150|
|Compound Interest||100||5 years||10%||61||161|
The above table shows that there was a total 7% increase in the output when calculated on the compounding basis. This might seem a small number now, but as the tenure increases, the numbers seem to increase drastically.
Rupee cost averaging is a technique used to invest money in the stock market at regular intervals of time (mostly monthly). Since investors sign-up for a long-term investment plan, by virtue of the fact that investing continues during the bad cycles of the stock market, investors are able to "buy low". For lump sum investments, most investors when they see a falling market or a bad phase, they defer their decisions to invest. During these periods a SIP continues its investing and ensures that the investor gets the benefit of a falling market.
