How does an investor need to plan his investment?
When chasing a financial goal, the simplest form of planning is to invest regularly.
Most of us calculate our earnings, expenses and savings on a monthly / quarterly basis. The easiest way to plan our investments, therefore, is on a monthly / quarterly basis.
- Identify your financial goals like buying a house, your first car, marriage, education.
- Set aside and invest a fixed sum of money regularly to meet these financial goals.
- Become a disciplined investor – maintain regularity.
- A SIP will ensure all these for you.
Maintain discipline in your asset allocation
- SIP helps avoid the temptation of jumping from one asset class to another during certain market conditions.
Rupee Cost Averaging
- By investing a fixed sum at fixed intervals we can buy fewer units when the price is higher and more units when the price is lower. This is called Rupee Cost Averaging.
- SIP takes care that your average price works out to be lower than the price you would have paid at the market peak. It takes care that you invest across market cycles. Your average price works out to be lower than investing at the market peak. It helps you avoid the temptation of timing your investments “Market Timing” is best left to professionals.
The Power of Compounding
- Instead of saving a huge chunk of money and investing it in a lump sum investment, it is better to invest regularly in smaller amounts. The reason being while your lump sum investment may attract returns it does not give you the benefit of compounded interest that happens in SIP investment. With an SIP investment your investment grows and also your interest earns interest.
