HOW TO SIP HEALTHY RETURNS?

Investment in Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) can open

New Doors of Prosperity for your Wealth Creation!

While Manan Patel a conscious investor started timely savings of Rs. 10,000 per month in a Systematic Investment Plan (SIP), his friend Chintan Shah was too preoccupied with his business to find time for planning his investments.

Manan’s SIP has a track record of offering a 15% annualized return and thus he has calculated that he would become a ‘Crorepati’ reaping Rs. 1.1 crores after 18 years of regular savings. Chintan wakes up 4 years late and also wants to catch up with his friend.

However, he is just unable to believe how much his delayed decision is going to cost him when he is told that to earn the same target amount of Rs. 1.1 crores in the remaining 14 years, he would be required to invest double the savings amount i.e. Rs. 20,000 per month.

TIME & TIMING – THE KEY TO PROSPEROUS INVESTMENT

The moral of the above story: “The golden secret of earning from saving is not how much you invest, but how long you invest.” The early bird gets the worm is not just a part of the jungle folklore. Even the ‘early’ investor gets a lion’s share of the investment booty due to the magic of ‘compounding’.  Time and Timing is the key to prosperous investment.

SIP has grown to become a popular investment mode, since it offers the following strategic advantages:

  • Inculcates a disciplined investment approach, encouraging the investor to regularly invest small amounts, instead of postponing investments and then sporadically investing large amounts.

  • Allows averaging of cost per unit, taking best advantage of market volatility, since an investor effectively buys more units when prices are low and less when prices are high.

While considering investment in SIPs offered by Mutual Funds, it would be even more worthwhile to look at SIPs of Equity Linked Savings Schemes (ELSS).  ELSS offers a golden opportunity to save income-tax of upto Rs.30,900 through a straight deduction under Section 80C upto Rs.1,00,000.
