A Systematic Withdrawal Plan (SWP) is a facility that allows an investor to withdraw money from an existing mutual fund at predetermined intervals. The money withdrawn through a systematic withdrawal plan can be reinvested in another fund or retained by the investor in cash.
When is a SWP generally used?
Systematic withdrawal plans are used by investors to create a regular flow of income from their investments. Investors looking for income at periodical intervals for e.g. funding a travel plan during the childrens’ summer vacations, also set up their withdrawals in such a way that the cash is available when most required.
What makes SWP a wise strategy?
- Withdrawals (also referred to as “redemption”) attract no Tax Deducted at Source
Please note that Capital Gains Tax will chargeable on the withdrawn amount.
- SWP can be set up to withdraw only the appreciation made on a particular investment. In this way your capital stays invested while you continue to enjoy the gains periodically.
SWP is available in two options:
Fixed Withdrawal: Where you specify amounts you wish to withdraw from your investment on a monthly/quarterly basis.
Appreciation Withdrawal: Where you can withdraw your appreciated amount on a monthly/quarterly basis.
Post-dated warrants sent to investors are dated 1st of every month.
