Category-wise SIP Details

Plans should be opted for by assessing how much risk you are willing to take and what goals you are trying to accomplish. The following sections offer deeper insight into the different categories to help you choose the best monthly SIP plans for Rs. 5000.

  1. Equity Funds

    Equity funds are those that invest in stocks and shares of a company. Depending on the performance of the company, the value of the funds goes up or down. This difference is what determines your returns at the base level. 

    Equity Sectoral / Thematic

    Sectoral / thematic funds invest in the stocks of companies belonging to a particular niche. For instance, the ICICI Prudential Technology Fund and the Tata Digital India Fund invest largely in the equity of tech or IT companies. The 3-year annualized return for each fund is 34.25% and 31.11% respectively. A monthly SIP of Rs. 5000 in each of these funds for at least 3 years can increase your investment of Rs. 1.8 Lakhs to over Rs. 3 Lakhs.  

    Equity Funds by Market Cap

    Funds that invest in the equities of large companies (ranking in the top 100 per SEBI guidelines) are large cap funds. Similarly, small cap funds are those that invest in companies ranking above 250. Mid-cap funds fall in the range between. The greater the market capitalization of a company, the more likely it is to get steady consistent returns. 

    The 3-year annualized return for the Axis Small Cap Fund is 30.08%. For Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund, which invests in a mix of large and mid-cap companies, it is 21.18%. 

  2. Tax Saving Funds

    These are primarily equity-based investments, however, these come with tax benefits under section 80C of the Income Tax Act, 1961. A monthly SIP of Rs. 5000 in such funds can help you save on taxes on the extra income earned through the returns on investments. 

    Equity ELSS

    Both Quant Tax Plan and Mirae Asset Tax Saver Fund come with a lock-in period of 3 years during which you cannot withdraw any funds. Their 3-year annualized returns are 36.82% and 20.61% respectively.

  3. Debt Funds

    Debt funds are low-risk in nature, and subsequently, the returns are lower than equity instruments. Ideally, investors should split their SIP investments into both equity and debt to generate decent returns while erring on the side of caution.

Summing Up!

A monthly SIP plan for Rs. 5000 can give you increased returns if you continue to stay invested for 5 years or more. Given the range of options available, stick to safer options such as hybrid funds and large-cap funds if you have just started out. As you start to understand more, gradually increase the investment amount and move towards a diversified portfolio comprising of both equity and debt funds.
