What is Systematic Transfer Plan (STP)?
In STP where in an investor invests a lump sum amount in one scheme and regularly transfers (i.e. switches) a pre-defined amount into another scheme. Every month / Week / Quarterly on a specified date an amount you choose is transferred from one mutual fund scheme to another of your choice. You can invest in a Debt funds and from there you can start a STP to an Equity Fund, so it works like a systematic Investment Plan (SIP).
In case of a volatile market, STP helps the investors to periodically transfer funds from one scheme (source scheme) to another (target scheme) and help them save the effort and time by compressing multiple instructions required for redemption from one scheme to invest in the other into a single instruction. STP is a possibly the second best investment strategy after SIP. It is one of the best risk mitigation strategies of the market.
