What is a STP calculator?

STP stands for Systematic Transfer Plan, which is a feature offered by mutual funds that allows investors to transfer a fixed amount of money from one mutual fund scheme to another, in a systematic and periodic manner.

An STP calculator is a financial tool that helps investors determine the amount of money they should transfer from one mutual fund scheme to another, through the STP feature. It typically works by taking inputs from the investor and then calculating the amount that needs to be transferred periodically, based on the selected STP duration and the rate of return of the target scheme.

Using an STP calculator can help investors plan their investments better and optimize their investment returns by selecting the right STP duration and target scheme based on their financial goals and risk appetite.


How does the STP calculator work?

An STP calculator works by considering various factors that impact the calculation of the amount to be transferred from one mutual fund scheme to another. It considers the source scheme, target scheme, initial investment, investment period, frequency of transfer, STP start and end date and so on. Based on these inputs, an STP calculator estimates the returns that you can expect from the scheme.

For example:

Hari is a 25-year-old who invested Rs. 1,20,000 in two mutual fund schemes, a debt fund and an equity fund.

He decided to use an STP plan to invest ₹10,000 per month for 12 months.

He chose a debt fund with an NAV of ₹50 and an equity fund with an NAV of ₹100. Hari then used an STP calculator to calculate how many units he would receive for each transfer based on the NAV of the mutual fund schemes he selected.

In the first month, Hari's transfer of ₹10,000 bought him 200 units of the debt fund (200 units = ₹10,000/NAV of ₹50) and 100 units of the equity fund (100 units = ₹10,000/NAV of ₹100).

At the end of the 12 months, he had invested a total of ₹1,20,000 - ₹60,000 in the debt fund and ₹60,000 in the equity fund.

The return on investment for each mutual fund scheme depends on its performance over the 12-month period. If the NAV of the debt fund increased to ₹55 and the NAV of the equity fund increased to ₹120, Hari's investment was worth ₹1,41,000 (₹66,000 in the debt fund and ₹75,000 in the equity fund), giving him a profit of ₹21,000.
