SIP and Lump sum Returns Calculator will help you achieve your goals on time. One of the most asked questions on my YouTube Videos comments is, how to perform SIP and Lump sum returns calculation in any mutual fund for upcoming 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or even 30 years using both SIP and Lump sum investments. Do we have any SIP and Lump sum Returns Calculator in Excel? YES, we have!

You can easily calculate Returns of any Mutual fund for next 30 years using the excel calculator I have provided in this article. Mutual Fund Returns excel calculator with SIP and Lump sum investment options will help you to understand the total amount you will be able to accumulate over a period of time.

It is important to note that you achieve best results in mutual fund investments when you invest for longer duration. SIP or Systematic Investment Planning will help you to get the benefit of Rupee-cost averaging, which means you will buy more mutual fund units when the market is down, thus giving you more profits. But, Lump sum investment is something where you will get more returns than SIP, considering you invest for a very long time. SIP and Lump sum Returns Calculator will help you calculate returns in both cases

Note: You can find the mutual fund returns calculator for investment up to next 30 years via SIP and Lump sum options at the bottom of this article.

What are Mutual Funds

  • Mutual Funds are Funds that help you invest in shares of multiple companies
  • Unlike stocks investing, mutual funds invests your money in multiple companies thus reducing the risks
  • This benefit of mutual funds investing in shares of multiple companies is called Diversification
  • Every mutual fund is assigned a Fund Manager who manages that mutual fund
  • Fund manager is responsible to select percentage of stocks to invest your money in, to give you better returns
  • Unlike stocks investing, you need not have to worry about selecting and monitoring stock performances while investing in mutual funds. Fund manager does the job for you

NAV of Mutual Fund

  • NAV (or Net Asset Value) is the price of single unit of mutual fund
  • Every mutual fund’s NAV is updated on daily basis except on weekends and public holidays in India
  • For example, NAV = Rs. 100, and you invest Rs. 10,000 then you get 100 units (Rs. 10,000 / Rs. 100) of this mutual fund in your folio (mutual fund account)
  • In this way, your investment value divided by the NAV value will determine the units that will be allocated to you
  • NAV of a mutual fund is something you should NOT consider while choosing a mutual fund. It doesn’t matter if NAV is Rs. 10 or Rs. 1000
    List of stocks present in mutual fund will determine the fund’s future growth
  • If the companies in fund’s portfolio grows with positive returns, NAV increases with time, else NAV decreases with time. Ideally, the NAV fluctuates over time and over longer run (over 5-7 years), mutual funds are believed to give good returns

What is Expense Ratio

Expense ratio is a small percentage taken by AMC (Asset Management Company) to manage your funds. You need not have to pay additionally as a part of Expense Ratio.

Expense Ratio amount is recovered from your profits that you make. Usually, expense ratio of regular mutual funds are high compared to those of direct mutual funds. You can get details of expense ratio of every fund on the mutual fund page.

How to Invest in Mutual Funds

There are 2 ways you can invest in Mutual Funds:

  1. SIP – Systematic Investment Plan:
    SIP allows you to invest a predefined amount every month in a mutual fund. Based on the NAV of mutual fund, Units are allotted to your account. You sell off these units when you want to redeem these units in order to book profits in mutual fund
  2. Lump sum Investment:
    In this, you invest a lump sum amount just once. You are allotted number of units based on your Investment amount and the NAV value on the day of Investment. As the NAV of mutual fund grows with time, your investment value also increases. You can redeem your mutual fund units on latest NAV when you want to book profits.

What is SIP and How SIP works

  • SIP full form is Systematic Investment Plan. This means you systematically invest specific amount in a disciplined manner every month based on your goals
  • The SIP amount you invest is used to buy Mutual Funds units every month
  • NAV (Net Asset Value) is the price of the single unit of a mutual fund
  • Units Calculation formula is – Units = Investment Amount / NAV
  • If NAV = Rs. 100 (price of single unit of a mutual fund), and you invest Rs. 5000, you get 50 Units (Rs. 5000 / Rs. 100) of this mutual fund for this investment
  • This way you invest every month and every SIP is considered as fresh Investment. Based on the NAV of the mutual fund, specific number of units gets added to your account

SIP vs Lump sum Investment

As mentioned above, SIP is investing in a systematic manner every month, on the other hand Lump sum investing is investing your entire amount in one go instead of investing systematically every month.


  • Let’s say you have Rs. 1,20,000 to be invested in a mutual fund
  • In SIP, you will divide this amount to be invested over a year so your SIP amount every month will be Rs. 10,000, of Rs. 5000 to be invested over the period of 2 years
  • In Lump sum investing, you will invest entire Rs. 1,20,000 in one go, without dividing it into multiple months investment
  • The calculation of number of units allocated to you remains same as mentioned above
  • But while investing in lump sum, there might be a risk you are taking since you cannot predict market. If market crashes next month after your lump sum investing, your investment value might be negative
  • But you might also be rewarded if market goes up after you investment since more units are allocated to you at reduced NAV value of mutual fund

SIP Benefits & Advantages

  • Allows you to invest only a fraction of amount instead of entire corpus in one go. You can choose this fraction of amount as SIP based on your affordability
  • Rupee Cost Averaging. You buy more units when market goes down, since NAV is less (more on this below). This increases your returns when market comes back to normal
  • You can have multiple SIPs based on your goals whether they are short term, medium term or long term goals
  • SIPs are flexible these days. You can choose to pause a SIP for few weeks or months, or stop SIP if your goal is achieved before time
  • You become disciplined in working towards goals with given timelines

Mutual Fund Withdrawal

  • After your SIP investments are complete and you no longer need or want to invest via SIP, you can either choose to stop SIP and redeem (withdraw) all your Units or keep them invested to grow more
  • When you redeem the units, it depends whether to sell all the units or partially you can select the number of units to be sold
  • Latest NAV of mutual fund will be considered while you sell mutual fund units which we saw in the video at the start of this post
  • Total Investment Value = Total Number of Units * Current NAV

Mutual Fund – Things to Remember before investing

  • While you are searching for a good mutual fund, you should see how the fund has performed in past
  • You should also see the expense ratio of the fund and how much money is invested in the fund which is called AUM (Asset under management). Lower the expense ratio of the fund, more returns you’ll receive
  • You should only invest in Direct mutual funds for better returns which also have low expense ratio compared to their regular fund counterpart
  • Remember to link your mutual funds investments with goals. And once your goal is achieved, you can stop investing and reap the benefits
  • Never book losses in mutual funds. If the market is down, wait for the market to come up so that you are in profit
  • It is always better to divide your money and invest via SIP (Systematic Investment Planning) compared to investing as lump sum. Never try to time the market to get best returns.
  • If someone says they can maximize your returns and ask you to lend them your money, just run away and never look back
