Asset allocation done right, with SIFI

Ever wondered, why Equity investment is synonymous with 'SIP', but Fixed Income investment is synonymous with 'lump sum'?

IDFC MF

SIP in Equity investments benefits from rupee cost averaging concept and is also viewed as a disciplined approach towards equity investing via a regular saving/investing habit.

When it comes to Debt investments it is very common for us to invest in FDs or PPFs, that too most likely once in a year. This is not as systematic and disciplined as an Equity SIP.

While Equity funds can potentially provide attractive returns, they are more vulnerable to volatility. Fixed Income (or Debt) funds, on the other hand, are relatively stable and can smoothen your journey on a bumpy road.

The secret lies in taking a disciplined approach and investing 'systematically’ in Equity and Fixed Income funds to create long term wealth to achieve your financial goals.

'It is called the SIFI way to invest - Systematic Investments in Fixed Income.'

As you can see, your Debt SIP could help cushion the fall during downturns in Equity markets when SIP returns in Equity turn negative, thereby playing an important part in balancing your allocation.

A combo SIP can capture the lower volatility of Debt SIP along with the higher growth potential of Equity SIP.
