Before gifting a Systematic Investment Plan popularly called SIP to your loved ones, you better know what it is. An SIP is a great way to invest in equity. An SIP is not an investment. It is a method of investing in mutual funds. SIPs help you escape the risk in stock markets.
With SIPs you invest in equity in a staggered manner. You invest a certain pre-determined amount, (amount you have decided beforehand), at regular intervals of time, in the mutual fund. This might be once each week, once each month or once in a quarter. SIP is a very good way, to save and invest for a bright future.
1. Mutual Funds are a great investment
Mutual funds are the new rage in India. After demonetization, banks were flush with cash. So they reduced interest rates offered on SB accounts and fixed deposits. You and other citizens rushed to invest in mutual funds which promised a much higher rate of return. More than 60,000 of our citizens are entering the mutual fund market everyday. This is thrice the monthly average of the past 3 years.
You and other citizens love to invest in mutual funds because they may give a higher rate of return than FD's or savings bank accounts. An investment in mutual funds is higher returns at higher risk.
2. Gift your loved ones an SIP
