Q1. Is SIP safer than lumpsum investments?

Ans. Lumpsum investments may be better than SIPs when it comes to profit, but a lumpsum investment also comes with a greater risk of loss as compared to SIPs.

With SIPs, if the markets are high then fewer units are bought whilst if the markets are low then more units are bought for the same amount. So, this helps to compensate for the losses.

So, SIPs are safer than lumpsum investments.
