What is an SIP?

The SIP mode allows mutual fund investors to invest a certain fixed sum regularly over the long term in the scheme/s of their choice, which helps develop a financial discipline - the key to successful investing. It also enables averaging of investment cost as more units are added when the equity markets are trading low and fewer units when the markets are scaling up. This feature enhances the power of compounding, allowing the investors' wealth to grow leaps and bounds over the long term.

What is XIRR and how it is calculated?

The full form of XIRR is Extended Internal Rate of Return. It is a method used to calculate returns on investments where multiple transactions occur at different points in time - such as in the case of SIP investments. While CAGR is a useful tool for comparing and selecting mutual fund schemes, XIRR helps investors to evaluate the actual returns on your investment. The XIRR formula calculates the annual average return of each SIP instalment to give you the total average annual return on investments.
