What is ICICI Prudential Freedom SIP?
ICICI Prudential Freedom SIP combines Systematic Investment Plans (SIP) and Systematic Withdrawal Plans (SWP) in one scheme. The motive of the scheme is to empower investors to reach their financial objectives. This scheme allows you to methodically build wealth through SIPs initially, followed by consistent returns via the SWP. You can select your preferred SIP and SWP schemes, determine SIP durations, and choose preferred SWP amounts. This systematic approach empowers you to realize your financial goals and ensures a stress-free future.
How does ICICI Prudential Freedom SIP Work?
ICICI Prudential Freedom SIP encourages you to invest regularly through SIP and allows you to withdraw regularly through SWP once the SIP period is over.
You must select a SIP scheme (‘Source Scheme’) for a pre-defined tenure. The Freedom SIP tenure is 8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 25 or 30 years.
Once the SIP tenure is completed, you need to select a ‘Target Scheme’ where the investments will be switched.
You have the freedom to choose the desired SWP amount. If you do not mention the
SWP amount, then the default SWP amount will be set. This default SWP will differ based on your SIP amount and tenure.
Let’s understand how Freedom SIP works with an example where the SIP amount is INR 10,000:
|Monthly SIP Amount
|SIP Tenure in Yrs
|Default monthly SWP Amount*
*Default monthly SWP amount in case the investor mentions no SWP amount. Also, the SWP amount will vary based on the SIP amount invested and the tenure.
