  • Tell me more about STP functionality.

    For an STP you can invest a lump sum amount in one scheme and regularly transfer a pre-defined amount into another scheme. Commonly, investors park a lump sum amount in a debt fund, from where a regular amount is transferred at periodic intervals into specific equity-oriented funds. It is similar to the drip investing concept of an SIP, the only difference being that money flows from one fund to another in case of an STP instead of being transferred from your bank account. This eliminates the risks associated with timing the market in case of lump sum investments and in turn offers the benefit of rupee cost averaging. You may choose a daily, weekly, monthly or a quarterly transfer plan, as per your needs.

    For an STP, you have to choose a fund from which the transfer is taking place (Transfer of scheme or fund) and a fund to which the transfer is taking place (Transferee Scheme or Fund). Transfers can be made daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly depending upon the STP chosen by you and the options available.

    The STP takes place in the form of units of the fund. This switch to the new scheme is carried out at the prevailing net asset value (NAV). Depending upon the NAV of the transferor fund, the redeemed units are converted in to redemption amount which is used to purchase the units of the transferee fund.

    Say if a person wants to invest in a fund ''''B'''' through STP, he will have to first select a fund ''''A'''' which allows STP. After selecting the fund ''''A'''', he will select fund ''''B'''' where the amount will be transferred. But instead of reallocating the entire amount, in STP you can select and set your amount and time period according to your risk appetite and the money will be regularly transferred from fund ''''A'''' to fund ''''B''''.

    The STP helps against any foreseen or sudden downfalls of the market.

  • Why should I invest through STP?

    When you feel that your portfolio needs rebalancing, STP comes in handy and saves you from lots of operational hassles that would otherwise go in transferring funds into equity schemes.
    When market conditions are in favor of equity growth in near future, it’s good to skew your portfolio towards equity for better returns with the help of STP.

    Works as SIP: You can invest in a Debt funds and from there you can start a STP to an Equity Fund, so it works like a systematic Investment Plan (SIP).
    Works as SWP: STP can also work like SWP, because with some funds you can do transfer from Equity funds to Debt Funds, so when markets look risky you can start a STP from Equity to Debt funds, which will act like SWP.
    Liquidity: Generally one does STP from Debt to Equity funds, so your money is invested in Debt fund. This means you can sell it anytime if you want. Hence it works like an ‘Emergency Fund’ too. In case you need money urgently, it can act like a liquid asset.
    Growth in Money: Not to forget that your money is invested in Debt funds, so your money is also growing at debt returns.
