India is currently the third largest economy in Asia and is set to grow by 7.5% in the 2017 to 2018 period, mostly due to government changes regarding economic policy. The two largest ETFs by assets tracking the Indian economy are at present up by 26% year-to-date.
Market data suggest that local investors are rushing into Indian stocks this year. Additionally, the government is putting pressure on various pension plans to increase their exposure to equities. What does this mean exactly? Indian ETFs are expected to grow even more, thus making it a great opportunity to invest in them.
Moreover, according to Bloomberg’s report, “Investors pumped 189 billion rupees ($2.9 billion) into the funds in September, after pouring a record 203 billion rupees in August, data from the Association of Mutual Funds in India show. The 804 billion rupees of net inflows in the first six months of the year that began April 1 is more than triple compared with the year-earlier period.”
Indian ETFs have a dynamism matching that of the domestic economy, and they may therefore be a fantastic addition to our portfolio no matter what kind of fund we are in need of. So, as always, we present a table with the best performing Indian ETFs at this point in time.
