SIP installments (Systematic Investment Plan) is an efficient way of investing in mutual funds that has made investing in mutual funds a much easy and simple process. It helps investors inculcate a habit of regular saving and investing.

SIP, we all know, is the mode to invest in mutual funds wherein a specific amount is deducted from your linked account at a specific period. It can be in many forms like weekly SIP, monthly SIP, fortnightly SIP, and yearly. Well among all people often confuse between two, monthly SIP and weekly SIP. Although every form of SIP follows the same principle that is Rupee Cost Averaging, still investors get confused between monthly SIP and weekly SIP.

Well, let us know about both weekly and monthly SIP Installments, the difference between both, and what is better between the two.

Monthly SIP 

When investors opt for a monthly SIP, the amount is deducted from their registered bank account on a specific date (selected by the investors) each month. For example: if any investors want to invest Rs 2,000 every month for a duration of 5 years then he chooses a specific date for the deduction of SIP installment per month while filling his mutual fund investment application, in a mutual funds scheme with an expected return of 10%. The amount is automatically deducted on the required date. His total amount invested in five years is Rs 1,20,000. The amount accumulated at the end of the tenure will be around Rs 1,56,165 (as per the SIP calculator, it is an expected return and not an actual return).

Weekly SIP 

When investors choose for a weekly SIP Installments, the amount is deducted from their registered bank account on a specific date (selected by the investors) each week that is four times a month. For example: if any investors want to invest Rs 500 every week for a duration of 5 years then he chooses a specific date for the deduction of SIP installment per week, in a mutual funds scheme with an expected return of 10%. The amount is automatically deducted on the required date. His total amount invested in five years is Rs 1,30,000. The amount accumulated at the end of the tenure will be around Rs 1,68,785 (as per the SIP calculator, it is an expected return and not an actual return).

Monthly SIP vs Weekly SIP 

If you compare the numbers mentioned in the above paras, you will notice that there is not a huge difference in the amount accumulated from the Weekly SIP than a monthly SIP. So basically, we can say that, whether it is a monthly SIP or weekly SIP, they have no major impact on the corpus built or accumulated. Thus, it is an investor’s choice, what he prefers, monthly SIP, or weekly SIP.

Weekly SIP Installments can help investors, reduce the risk by timing the market more frequently as compared to monthly SIP Installments. Also, they frequently average the purchase cost, help add a greater number of units when the market is low, and maximize profits. However, in the case of weekly SIP’s, it becomes much difficult for the investor to track and manage the cash flows, as they have to invest every week and manage their investment every week.

It is advised by the experts if you are a salaried person, then monthly SIP Installments suits you best as you receive your salary at the end of each month. You also make your budget at the end of the month, hence having your investments at the end of the month is better. Secondly, if you opt for a weekly SIP Installments, then there is increased paperwork and you need to keep a constant record. A monthly SIP will not require you to monitor it constantly.  

If we conclude, then I should say, the most important thing is inculcating a habit of preparing a household budget, saving a good amount, and investing a part of your savings in mutual funds.

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.
