SIP investment plans are the most commonly used mutual fund plans when it comes to building long-term wealth for retirement.

Before we talk about 5 tips to accelerate your financial growth with SIPs, it is very important to understand clearly what an SIP really is.

SIP is just a “mechanism” to invest your monthly recurring savings into mutual funds. But it is NOT the only mechanism and definitely not the best mechanism.

Opt for direct mutual funds

This is perhaps the simplest one to implement. Direct funds will straightway give a boost of 0.8%-1% (annually) to your returns.

Start early with your SIP investment plan

This is very important. If you are looking to build a retirement corpus with your mutual fund investments, starting early is extremely important.

The earlier you start, the more time you give your investments to compound. And compounding is simply awesome. You can’t imagine what it can do for your wealth creation.

Compounding basically means investing back the returns generated by an investment. This return generated is added back to the principal and then the investment generates further returns on the enhanced principal. This is a very powerful concept and can over time turn even small sums into very large sums of money.

Select the best mutual funds for your SIP investment plan

This sounds almost like common sense. And it is. If you select the best mutual funds, you will get the best returns.

But the harsh truth is that most people get it wrong. They think that they are opting for the best mutual funds. But they are not.

Keep your portfolio optimized

The funds you select will not be the best funds forever. Make sure that you are always invested in the best mutual funds.

For example, suppose you select the best mutual funds as per the list above. Fast forward to year 2023. Do you think that the same funds will still be the best then? If not, why should you continue investing in them?

Portfolio optimization is fairly complex to implement. You have to actively manage your portfolio. Unless you have all the time in the world, better left for the machines.

Apply intelligence

Best for the last!

By applying intelligence to your SIP investment plan (and now we will start to call it something different), you can give a significant boost to your returns.

Intelligence can be the real game changer for your investments.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it? It is a long-established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem Ipsum will uncover many websites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where does it come from? Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.
