What is SIP Calculator?

A Systematic
Investment Plan (SIP)
calculator is a financial tool
that can help in calculating the returns that an investor may
earn through SIP investments. The calculator also estimates the
amount of money that an investor must invest every month to earn
a target corpus in the future. In simple terms, a SIP calculator

The SIP calculator is an effective tool to
automatically compute complex financial calculations, without
investors having to manually calculate. All it requires is for
investors to provide a few key inputs to arrive at the result
within a few seconds.

How does a SIP calculator work?

A SIP calculator requires users to enter certain
values like the amount to be invested, frequency of investment,
investment duration, and the expected returns.

The SIP calculator is based on the compound interest
formula. Investors can better understand the SIP calculator
functionality with the help of below-mentioned formula.

FV = P [ (1+i)^n-1 ] *
FV Future value or the amount you get at maturity.
P Amount you invest through SIP
i Compounded rate of return
n Investment duration in months
r Expected rate of return

Example – Suppose an investor wants to invest Rs. 2,000 every
month. The tenure of investment is 24 months and he/she expects
an annual rate of return of 12%.

The SIP calculation using the SIP calculator will be:

i = r/100/12 or 0.01
FV = 2000 * [(1+0.01) ^24 – 1] * (1+0.01)/0.01

With the above investment, an investor can generate
Rs. 54,486 at maturity.

generating substantial returns. However, SIP date does not play a
significant role especially from a long term perspective. It can be
selected as per one’s convenience.

Mutual funds can be equity, debt or even hybrid schemes. SIP is only a
medium of investing in mutual funds. The choice of mutual funds entirely
depends on personal investment horizon and risk taking ability. SIPs are
ideal for equity and equity-oriented hybrid funds since these are prone
to market fluctuations. However, an investor can even choose to invest
in a debt fund through SIP.

high and can be stopped when the markets fall?

No, investors should not base their SIP investments on market movements.
SIPs should ideally be considered from a long term perspective as these
carry the benefit of rupee cost averaging. There will be higher chances
of wealth creation if one stays invested for a longer duration.
