Automatic Investment Plan

This indicates the smallest amount with which one may enter a fund's automatic-investment plan—an arrangement where the fund takes money on a monthly, quarterly, semiannual, or annual basis from the shareholder's checking account.

Often, the normal minimum initial purchase requirements are waived in lieu of this systematic investment plan. The systematic investment amount is the minimum amount required for subsequent regular investments in an automatic investment plan.

Studies indicate that regular automatic investment, also known as dollar-cost averaging, is perhaps the most successful investment plan for long-term investors.
