SWP Calculator

SWP stands for systematic withdrawal plan. Under SWP, if you invest lump sum in a mutual fund, you can set an amount you’ll withdraw regularly and the frequency at which you’ll withdraw.

For example, let’s say you invested in HDFC Top 200 Fund an amount of ₹1 lakh for a year. Let’s assume that you decided to withdraw an amount of ₹10000 per month. So every month, your investment in the fund will reduce by ₹10000. The amount left every month after withdrawal will continue to remain invested.

Use the above SWP calculator to know how much you can withdraw from your lumpsum investments.

How can an SWP calculator assist you?

As per the Systematic Withdrawal Plan, an individual needs to invest a particular amount and withdraw a certain amount of the corpus invested each month. After withdrawal, the amount will be deducted from the investment while it continues to accumulate interest.

It is difficult to accurately calculate the monthly withdrawals and total matured sum. Groww can help you with these complex calculations with its SWP calculator. This Systematic Withdrawal Plan calculator easily computes your matured sum as per your monthly withdrawals precisely. Calculators are simplifying the way people invest in mutual funds.

Example of Systematic Withdrawal Plan

As mentioned before, the SWP allows investors to generate both monthly revenue as well as an accumulated sum at the end of the maturity period. Refer to this investment and withdrawal schedule for an in-depth idea.

Here, an individual has invested Rs. 50,000 for the tenure of 1 year along with a systematic withdrawal of Rs. 1,000 per month. The interest rate stands at 10%.

As such, the total return of investments after the end of the tenor stands at Rs. 4,565.
