Systematic Withdrawal Plan

Systematic Withdrawal Plan (SWP) is a smart plan that allows you to redeem units and withdraw money from a mutual fund scheme in a phased manner, at a frequency of your choice. This could be ideal for investors who want a regular cash flow. Usually, the intervals are monthly, quarterly, or annual. However, based on the type of fund and the asset management company (AMC) you have chosen, you may also be able to customise it. If you want to get an estimate of the future value of your investment, based on your withdrawals, using an SWP calculator is recommended.

What Is a Systematic Withdrawal Plan (SWP) Calculator?

An SWP mutual fund calculator is a smart way to calculate the future value of your mutual fund and your expected returns based on the withdrawals you make from the fund at your chosen frequency. It saves you time, manual effort, and provides an error-free result. It can help you build a corpus, consistent with your long-term financial goals, in a manner through which you can continue to enjoy a regular cash flow, while also maximising the returns potential of your investment.

Let us now take a look at the mathematical formula based on which an SWP calculator operates:

Formula Used by an Systematic Withdrawal Plan Calculator

This is how you can calculate the final value of your investment if you plan to start an SWP:
A = P ((1+r/n)^nt-1)/(r/n)

A = future value of your investment
P = the amount withdrawn at the end of each period
r = rate of return per year
n = number of times compounding is done per period
t= the tenure

For example, if you invest ₹2 Lakh in a mutual fund for 5 year at an expected rate of interest of 12% p.a. and decide to withdraw ₹500 from the fund every month via the SWP route, the final value of your investment will be ₹30,000* and your total earnings will be ₹3,12,298*.

To understand how a systematic investment plan calculator works, let us consider the following example:

An Example to Illustrate the Benefits of SWP

Let us assume that you have invested ₹5,00,000 in a mutual fund scheme. Let us also assume that you plan to withdraw ₹10,000 per month. Let’s say the tenure is 12 months and the expected rate of return is 10% p.a.
