## What is an SIP?

SIPs are a way to invest a fixed sum of money in Mutual Funds periodically (weekly, quarterly, or monthly). It is a convenient way to invest in Mutual Funds as you do not have to make a lump sum investment, and can start with instalments as low as ₹100.

## What is an SIP Calculator?

A Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) Calculator is a smart and easy tool that helps you calculate the returns you will earn on your SIP investments. Using this, you can get an estimate on how much you need to invest every month in order to reach your desired goal. It’s a quick and effective tool for achieving your financial goals. You can easily calculate the estimated returns on your investment by entering just a few basic details.

## How does our SIP Calculator work?

Our SIP Calculator uses the following formula –
M = P × ({[1 + i]n – 1} / i) × (1 + i).
In this formula –

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

Example:
You are investing ₹1,000 per month for 12 months at a periodic rate of interest of 12%.
The rate of return per month would be 12%/12 = 1/100=0.01
Hence, in a year, you will get approximately ₹12,809.
However, do keep in mind that the rate of interest on Mutual Funds change as per market conditions. It may increase or decrease, which may impact the estimated returns.
