About SIP Calculator
An SIP, or a systematic investment plan, is a way to invest in a mutual fund scheme which helps make investing in mutual funds easier for every individual. The SIP calculator helps you get an idea of the returns you can expect when you invest a fixed amount over a certain period. Some of the other advantages that an SIP calculator offers are:
- Helps to determine the amount to invest in a SIP
- Helps with setting smarter financial goals by showing you expected returns
- Allows you to adjust the invested amount, period and expected returns to see investment horizons clearly
- Helps with building investing discipline, when you start investing though an SIP
How to use SIP Calculator?
To use the SIP calculator, enter the amount that you are willing to invest every month. Then choose the duration of the investment and expected returns. Once you provide this information, the calculator will show you what your invested amount is, what its future value will be and what your returns will be for that chosen period.
From there, to arrive at the SIP amount that is most affordable, simply change the amount you plan to invest every month or the tenure for which you plan to invest. You can also use it to understand how much you’ll have to invest on a monthly basis to achieve a specific financial goal in a chosen amount of time.
