SIP or Systematic Investment Plan refers to the practice of investing a constant amount regularly in a Mutual Fund, generally on a fixed date every month. By investing on a fixed schedule, you avoid the complex or even impossible duty of trying to figure out the exact best time to invest.
Key benefits of investing via SIP
Rupee Cost Averaging
SIP allows for averaging investment costs. The fundamental mantra behind rupee cost averaging is ‘you get more units for a lower price’. When markets are down, you get more units of your scheme. When markets high you get fewer units for the same amount. In this way, your average cost per unit in volatile markets turns out to be lower than when you invest in a lump-sum
