Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) is a lucrative way for individuals to invest their money. SIP is offered by Mutual Funds and it allows the investor to infuse a fixed amount into a Mutual Fund scheme at regular intervals. An individual can invest once a month or once every quarter instead of a lump sum amount at the same time. 

Through SIP, investors have a chance to grow a substantial amount for their mid-term investment goals such as higher studies for children, dream vacations, sabbaticals, etc.
