The Smart Investor’s Choice
The Goal of Most Investors it to Buy when the prices are Low, and Sell when the prices are High Sounds simple, but trying to time the market like this is: ◦ Time Consuming ◦ Risky ◦ and Almost Impossible A more successful strategy is to adopt Rupee Cost Averaging
The Markets are volatile: they move up and down in an unpredictable manner Invest a fixed amount, at regular, predetermined intervals and use the market fluctuations to your benefit How does it help you: ◦ You buy more more when the market is down ◦ You buy less when the market is up ◦ Over time the market fluctuations are averaged ◦ Most likely you will realise a saving on the cost per unit ◦ This leads to HIGHER RETURNS
Lets compare Systematic Investing with a Lumpsum Investment SYSTEMATIC INVESTMENT You invest Rs on the 10th of every month in the HDFC Growth Fund, in 2001 LUMPSUM INVESTMENT Rajesh invests Rs in January of 2001 in HDFC Growth Fund
units units When the price is highest, you buy the least number of units When the price is lowest, you buy the highest number of units NAV Movement in 2001
Rajesh’s Average Cost Price Your Average Cost Price Actual Price Movement Your average unit price = 12000/ = Rs Rajesh’s average unit price = Rs Your Saving= Rs per unit Your Systematic Investing helps you purchase units more at price which is Rs lower than Rajesh’s
Lets assume both you and Rajesh decide to redeem all your holdings on Jan 10, 2002 (NAV on Jan 10, Rs ) YouRajesh Number of Units1, , Amount ReceivedRs Rs. 9, Returns (%age)1.99%-19.69%
Difficult to predict the market and know when to “Buy Low, Sell High”, hence invest Systematically Takes advantage of Rupee Cost Averaging: buy more when the price is low and buy less when its high Low maintenance, payments are made automatically Contribute as little as Rs.1000 every month Instills investing discipline: no temptation to time the market
