## How does a mutual fund SIP calculator work?

A mutual fund SIP calculator works on a fixed formula which is as below:

M = P [ (1+I)^n-1 ] x (1+I)/I.

Here, M is maturity amount one can expect;

P is SIP amount;

I is periodic interest rate; and

n is investment period in months.

For example, if an investor invests Rs 1,000 per month for 2 years expecting 12 per cent annual return.

Then, I would be 12/(12x100) i.e. 0.01.

So, M = 1000 [ (1 + 0.01)^n-1 ] x (1+I)/I.

This means, one would get maturity amount of around Rs 27,243 at the end of 2 years investing Rs 1,000 per month.
