Risk in SIP: Assessment of Risk in SIP Investment

Updated on October 17, 2020 , 9923 views

The risk in SIP varies for different Types of Mutual Funds. investing in Mutual Funds via SIP (Systematic Investment plan) involves market linked risks, that are certainly higher for Equity Funds than debt and balanced Mutual Funds. The risk in SIP depends on the investment option that is chosen considering the risk profile, risk appetite and liquidity. However, the risk in SIP can be managed and reduced by the fund managers and the fund house.

Risk-in-sip

To calculate the risk in SIP there are various tools available like sip calculator (also known as SIP return calculator).

Risk in SIP: Assessment of SIP Risks

Risk 1: The risk of SIP getting a negative return or price risk

Mutual fund investments are subject to market risks, is a commonly heard term. What this means is that your investment in a SIP can go down and you can end up with a value lower than what you invested depending on how the market behaves.

The risk in SIP is however related to the holding period and usually, the longer the holding period, the lower the risk. With higher holding period the probability of making profit increases. For e.g. have a look below for equity, a longer holding period for equity results in a lowering chance of loss. (The below is an analysis done on the BSE Sensex from 1979 to 2016).

Risk 2: The risk being able to get your money back quickly or liquidity risk

The ability to get your money back quickly depends on the underlying investments. Usually with mutual funds, this is not an issue, however, there have been periods (such in 2008), when there was an issue in selling securities(Bonds) and that certain mutual funds had to limit withdrawals from some schemes. The equity market is fairly liquid (meaning that buying and selling do not pose an issue). However, if the sale quantity exceeds the numbers of buyers by a large amount, then this will result in an issue, hence making subsequent payouts a problem and hence liquidity risk.

Risk 3: The risk of downgrade of a security or credit risk

When the bond of a particular company/entity undergoes a downgrade by a credit rating agency, its price falls. If the price falls, this impacts the overall value of the portfolio. This is called credit risk.

Risk 4: The risk of the company not paying the owners of the bond their due or default risk

When a company defaults on its payments to the bond holders, it’s called default risk.

Default-Risk-in-sip

With the investor not getting their money back, this will impact their portfolio, negatively.

Risk 5: The risk of processing your transaction correctly or technology risk

Today, all transactions take place in the electronic mode. With the various touch-points, there is a possibility of a technological failure at various places, at the R & T Agent, the bank to debit funds etc.

The non-processing of a transaction is also a risk in SIP.

Risk 6: The risk of scheme performance by the portfolio manager or fund management risk

Technology-risk-in-sip

Another risk in SIP is that the chosen scheme may not deliver upto expectations, and performance may be much lower than expected. The Fund Manager may under-deliver on performance, and this will lead to low returns on the SIP investment.

These are the major risks in a SIP, while we can go on and elaborate further risks in SIP like economy risk etc., most of these risks would fall under one or more of the categories above.

Though there is definitely a risk in SIP, one should always remember that SIP or lump sum, this is just an investment route and NOT the underlying investment. One needs to look at the underlying investment, its risks, and then make a final decision.
