Systematic Investment Plan
Reliance Systematic Investment Plan Invest as little as Rs. 100 per month.
Welcome to Reliance Mutual Fund

Just as drops of water make an ocean, small but regular investments can go a long way in building wealth over time. This way you grow step by step. It's always prudent to invest with a long term horizon in mind. Small but regular investments go a long way in creating wealth over time. Reliance Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) helps you achieve just that. It is an investment technique where you deposit as little as Rs. 100 regularly every month into the mutual fund scheme at the then prevailing NAV (Net Asset Value), subject to applicable load.

No need to time the markets Imagine, if you could always pick the right time to buy and sell. However, timing the market is a time-consuming and risky task. Through disciplined, regular investments you can stop worrying about when and how much to invest. In short, it eliminates the need to actively track the markets.

Lower cost per unit Since your investments are spread regularly over a period of time, buying fewer units during rising markets and buying more units during falling markets reduces the average cost per unit of your investments - this concept is known as Rupee Cost Averaging.

Illustration - Rupee Cost Averaging Say you have opted for Reliance Systematic Investment Plan, investing Rs. 1000 every month from March 2009 to Feb 2010 in a diversified equity fund. Now check the average purchase cost per unit of your investments. It would be lower than the average NAV of your investment over 12 months.
