SEP is a product using which you can place buy orders for a pre - specified amount or for a pre - specified quantity in scrips of your choice at regular intervals over a period of time as selected by you. For instance, you can select a SEP for a period of say 6 months to invest 2000 per month/ other permitted frequency in shares of BHEL or alternatively you can choose to buy 10 shares of BHEL every month/ other permitted frequency through SEP.
Unlike in the cash segment, where you have to time the market to make gains, SEP helps you to bring down your average cost of acquisition of shares due to the averaging principle.
SEP eliminates the need for you to actively track the market and helps in distributing your investment over a period of time.
An SEP Request is an online instruction placed by you on www.icicidirect.com authorising I-Sec to place buy orders in your account as per the details specified by you.
You do not need to allocate funds for placing an SEP as funds are auto debited from your linked bank account.
Frequency means the time interval, after the start date, with which you wish SEP orders to be placed in your account. Depending on the frequency selected by you, I-Sec will place SEP orders at the defined intervals after the start date for the total period specified by you.
You may select either Amount based SEP request or Quantity based SEP request. You can indicate your choice by selecting the desired option under the field "SEP Type" at the time of placing the SEP request.
Amount based SEP is a SEP type wherein a fixed amount (or approximately the same) is invested in your desired scrip at each frequency.
In case of Amount based SEP, you need to specify the amount to be invested in the scrip at your desired frequency. The amount specified by you should be equal to or above the minimum amount defined by I-Sec. The shares will be purchased at market price and the quantity will be decided using the formula SEP/Market Price
Quantity based SEP is a SEP type wherein a fixed quantity of shares of your desired scrip is purchased at each frequency.
In case of Quantity based SEP, the quantity would be as specified by you and would be fixed while placement of orders as per your desired frequency. The order value would be calculated based on the market price of the scrip prevailing in the market at the time of order placement.
You can place an SEP by logging into our website and selecting Systematic Equity Plan under Place Oder Tab – Equity. The key details such as stock name, SEP Type, Exchange and duration need to be filled.
