The answer to this question depends from investor to investor. Depending on your risk profile, suitability, and affordability, you can make your choice between lump sum and SIP. If you have proper knowledge about the mutual fund market then you can invest through lump sum else SIP. But if you were to take my advice, then SIP being a disciplined approach will help you in reducing your risk along with providing good returns.
