We all have dreams that we want to realise - owning a house, getting the best education for children, perfect retirement, owning a car or going for a dream vacation. But we don't know how to achieve these dreams or get the funds to make it possible.

Now it is all possible with proper planning, disciplined investing and the magic of compounding, along with a sound investment advice from Arihant. In other words through a Systematic Investment Plan.

You must be wondering,

what is a SIP?

A SIP is a vehicle offered by mutual funds to help you invest a fixed amount in your choice of mutual fund scheme at regular intervals - monthly or quarterly. To explain it simply, a SIP is like a recurring deposit with the bank wherein you put a fixed amount of money every month, but the difference being, in SIP the money goes into the mutual fund.

Investing through SIP will empower you to plan and save for your future by inculcating in you a disciplined habit of investing that should bring you closer to achieving your financial objectives. An SIP is generally preferred for an equity scheme and can be started with as low as Rs 500 per month.

Why SIP?

A Systematic Investment Plan works for you in three ways

Disciplined Investment: It helps you to save regularly and thus inculcates a sense of discipline

Power of compounding: Small, regular investments lead to large accumulation of wealth over time hence harnessing the power of compounding.

Rupee cost averaging: SIP ensures you invest at every market level hence saving you from the biggest mistake that every investor makes – buying high selling low. This combined with the power of compounding works wonders to your portfolio.

Small Pocket Investment: You can invest in a diversified portfolio of stocks with as low as Rs 500 per month through the SIP mode.

What is this Power of Compounding?

When you invest every month, not only you generate returns on your capital, but through a SIP, you generate returns on your returns as well. Sounds confusing?

Suppose you invest Rs 3,000 every month and in first month you get a 5% return, so the next month your total amount invested in the mutual fund will be Rs 3,150 plus the other Rs 3,000 you will put at the start of second month. So your fund manager has to now generate returns on Rs 6,150 not Rs 3,000. The same cycle carries month-after-month till you stay invested.

See how the power of compounding will work for you: When you invest Rs 3,000 every month for 20 years in the Systematic Investment Plan of mutual fund scheme, assuming that you get 12% return per annum*, you accumulate Rs 30,00,000 after 20 years {your total investment is Rs 7,20,000}. See below how your Rs 3,000 every month grows year-by-year.

Yr (in Rs) Yr (in Rs) Yr (in Rs) Yr (in Rs)
1 st 38,427 6th 3,17,271 11th 8,23,844 16th 17,44,135
2nd 81,730 7th 3,95,937 12th 9,66,756 17th 20,03,762
3rd 1,30,523 8th 4,84,580 13th 11,27,793 18th 22,96,317
4th 1,85,504 9th 5,84,464 14th 13,09,254 19th 26,25,976
5th 2,47,459 10th 6,97,017 15th 15,13,728 20th 29,97,443
*The returns are calculated at an expected 12% rate of return per annum from equity mutual funds in India, although the average return of top ranking diversified mutual funds in India, for the last 10 years, has been more than 35% per annum (as on 31st March 2015).

Why is the emphasis given on starting to invest early? What if I invest a larger amount towards a later part of my life?

No matter how you choose to invest to create wealth, one thing is sure, the earlier you start the better off you will be. When you start early, your investment and returns start compounding year-by-year making your money work harder for you.
