Investing in mutual schemes using SIP is being preferred and chosen by many. Do you too want to invest in SIP but are skeptical? Read on to know why you should start a SIP.
What is SIP?
A systematic Investment plan, also known as SIP is a method with which you can invest money in mutual schemes.
SIP allows you to invest a fixed amount of money in your choice of mutual funds on a monthly basis. The said amount is automatically deducted from your bank account every month and goes into your mutual scheme.
Reasons to Start a SIP:
1) Start Small and Be at Ease
With SIP, you can start with an amount as low as Rs. 500. As hard as it is to believe, the statement is actually very true. You won’t have a hole in your pocket with SIP even when you’re on a tight budget.

2) Skip or Stop the SIP Anytime
Unlike Recurring deposits, SIP does not put a fine or penalty charge on you when you stop it. Deciding to stop a SIP is not subjected to any disadvantages. According to your choice, you can either get the deposited amount back or just let it stay invested.
Even if you don’t have the required or enough balance in your bank account for the next SIP, there are no problems. Without any fines put up against you, you can continue with the next SIP next month.
3) Grow Your Wealth with Power of Compounding
If you thought that all you get from SIP are monthly returns, then you are wrong. SIP adds the monthly returns you get to the actual amount which is further invested again. This is the power of compounding. Over a period of time, your wealth is bound to grow expeditiously with the power of compounding.
