From Rs 7,000 crore to Rs 2 lakh crore - that is how the asset base of exchange-traded funds in India has grown over the last 5 years. ETFs are a kind of mutual fund, but with one big difference - as the name suggests, they are listed on exchanges and are traded like stocks. They are passive funds, i.e. they mimic an index, and a fund manager doesn't actively choose the constituent stocks. Although ETFs are traditionally cheaper than their non-listed counterparts, retail participation in this category remains subdued, although there is growing interest. Since ETFs are traded throughout the day, their price fluctuates too, unlike other MFs. This is what makes ETFs appropriate for a particular demographic. So are ETFs the right product for you? And if so, then what are the factors you need to keep in mind before you start investing? Listen to this episode of Money with Monika to know more.
