SIP Calculator – Systematic Investment Plan Calculator

Systematic investment plan or SIP is a process of investing a fixed sum of money in mutual funds at regular intervals. SIPs usually allow you to invest weekly, quarterly, or monthly. 

Prospective investors can think that SIPs and mutual funds are the same. However, SIPs are merely a method of investing in mutual funds, the other method being a lump sum. A SIP calculator is a tool that helps you determine the returns you can avail when parking your funds in such investment tools.

How can a SIP return calculator help you?

SIPs are a more lucrative mode of investing funds compared to a lump sum amount according to several mutual fund experts. It helps you become financially disciplined and create a habit of savings that can benefit you in the future.

A SIP calculator online is a beneficial tool, which shows the estimated returns you will earn after the investment tenure.

Few of the benefits of SIP calculators include –

  1. Assists you to determine the amount you want to invest.
  2. Tells you the total amount you have invested.
  3. Gives an estimated value of the returns.

How do SIP calculators work?

An SIP plan calculator works on the following formula – M = P × ({[1 + i]n – 1} / i) × (1 + i).

In the above formula –

  • M is the amount you receive upon maturity.
  • P is the amount you invest at regular intervals.
  • n is the number of payments you have made.
  • i is the periodic rate of interest.

Take for an example you want to invest Rs. 1,000 per month for 12 months at a periodic rate of interest of 12%.

Hence, M = 1,000 X ({[1 + 12%]12  – 1} / 12%) x (1 + 12%).

Therefore, M = Rs. 25,293 (approx.).

The rate of interest on an SIP will differ as per market conditions. It may increase or decrease, which will change the estimated returns.
