A systematic investment plan (SIP) is a plan in which investors make regular, equal payments into a fund, trading account, or retirement account such as a 401(k). SIPs allow investors to save regularly with a smaller amount of money while benefiting from the long-term advantages of dollar-cost averaging (DCA). By using a DCA strategy, an investor buys an investment using periodic equal transfers of funds to build wealth or a portfolio over time slowly.
- Power of compounding
Compounding occurs when the returns you earn on your investments start earning returns. This is a simple concept in theory. But its practical implications are substantial.
When you invest regularly through SIPs, your returns get reinvested. Over time, this result in a snowball-effect, that may increase your potential returns manifold. An ideal way to maximise this gain is to invest for an extended period. This also means you may benefit by investing as early as possible.
- Low initial investment
You can invest in crypto through a SIP with just $10 per day/week/month. This can be an affordable way to invest each month without hurting your wallet. You can increase your monthly investment amount with a rise in your income via SIP step-up feature. We allow investors to top up their SIPs on a regular basis. So, even if you start with $10 or $100 every day/week/month, you can invest more over the years. This strategy can help you reach your investment goals at a faster rate.
- Dollar cost averaging
Dollar cost averaging is a concept where you purchase more units when the Net Asset Value (NAV) of the fund is low, and lesser units when the NAV is high. Essentially, it averages out your purchasing costs over the tenure of the investment period. You don’t need to worry about how to time the market when you invest through a SIP.
