With a focus on quality companies in one of the fastest-growing major economies in the world, the BetaShares India Quality ETF will give investors a way to access the Indian market through a passive indexing approach – to be launched on the ASX.*
One of the fastest-growing major economies in the world – India has GDP growth projections of ~7% annually to 2023**. Rapidly securing a foothold in the global economy, India is known for its agriculture and manufacturing industries, but is mostly renowned for its IT sector, home to companies including Tata Group and Infosys.
|Opportunities for outperformance – the Indian market is substantially less efficient than those in the developed world, providing potential for the ETF’s quality-focused indexing approach to deliver outperformance in returns compared to a market capitalisation indexing approach.|
BetaShares India Quality ETF will offer investors:
Potential for superior long-term performance – over the last 10 years to 31 March 2019, the quality-focused index which the ETF will aim to track has outperformed popular market capitalisation based India benchmarks by approximately 4% p.a.*** In addition, companies with superior quality characteristics historically have exhibited reduced declines during market falls.
|Diversified returns – the ETF will invest directly in a diversified portfolio of high-quality Indian companies. Our approach reduces the potential for a small number of companies to dominate returns, given that India is one of the most concentrated stock markets in the world.|
