“Maybe” said the SIP investor!

There is a SIP investor who is very disciplined. One month the market crashes because of a global pandemic. His market timing neighbours come to visit. “Such bad luck,” they say.

“Maybe,” replies the SIP investor.

The next month there is news of a new vaccine that will cure the pandemic. Markets are euphoric. “How wonderful,” the neighbours exclaim!

“Maybe,” replies the SIP investor.

Then news comes that the vaccine will take over a year to make and may or may not work. His portfolio crashes again. The neighbours come to offer their sympathy for his misfortune.

“Maybe,” replies the SIP investor.

Then the largest central bank says they will back asset prices. Markets rally like never before, like once in a lifetime. The market timers are exhausted, are whipsawed. They congratulate the SIP investor on how well things had turned out.

“Maybe,” replies the SIP investor.

And continues his SIP.


SIP inflows stood at Rs 8,123 crore in May, a marginal dip of 0.73% from the same month last year. The total number of SIP folios in May jumped to 3.16 crore from 3.14 crore in April. The assets under management (AUM) through SIP stood at 2.76 lakh crore in May, up from 2.75 lakh crore in the previous month.

    Hi Gauravji
    I have Direct SIP with Parag Parikh long term equity fund which I want to manage by Kuvera platform.
    I have another SIPs also with another broker which I don’t want to club with This platform.
    How shall I club only Parag Parikh’s plan with the same portfolio?
