List of Index Funds and ETFs in India 2022 as of 5th September 2022. There is huge popularity among investors investing in Indian Index Funds and ETFs. However, if one tries to choose the right index funds, then one will get confused.
Because currently, the list of Index Funds and ETFs is so much big that investors will run away. Hence, thought to collate the available Index Funds and ETFs in one place for your simplicity.
Currently, there are around 160 Index Funds and ETFs available for investors by benchmarking around 57 various indexes. Going forward I am sure that the number of Index Funds and ETFs will increase and may soon cross 200+ 🙂
It is all because of the popularity of passive funds and hence these AMCs wish to use this opportunity by launching as many Index or ETF Funds as possible. But the sad part is that adopting the passive strategy for investors is to simplify their life. However, with so many variants available and going forward to be added, I know that the life of investors will turn into hell with a lot of confusion.
Just because one has to adopt the passive strategy does not mean one must invest in all the available Index Funds of ETFs. With 2-3 Index Funds, you can easily create a well-diversified portfolio. Rest everything is JUNK for the AMCs business purpose and for those who do 24*7 research. Ignore the rest of the funds for simplicity.
List of Index Funds and ETFs in India 2022
As I mentioned above, currently there are around 160 Index Funds and ETFs available for investors. These include Gold and certain debt funds (like target maturity funds).
I have created a Google Sheet and embedded the same for your reference. I will update the sheet as and when I will find the new Index Funds or ETFs.
I have just included the names, benchmark, and current AUM. To choose the Index Funds or ETFs within each category, you have to concentrate on expense ratio, tracking error, tracking difference, and also obviously the AUM.
I wrote a detailed post on what you mean by Tracking Error and Tracking Difference. You can refer to the same at “Tracking Difference Vs Tracking Error of ETF and Index Funds“.
Adopting the passive strategy is the simplest and most wonderful investment strategy. However, BEWARE with the number of options available in front of us!!
