How to participate in the upcoming rally through ETF Mode?
RETAIL RESEARCH
Prologue:
The expected bull run in the domestic equity market led by the prospects of a revival in economic growth on the back of strong government at the centre offers an opportunity for investors to benefit out
from the equity investments. Despite the current and near term macro headwinds such as high retail inflation, possibility of El Nino (though a full fledged drought like conditions may not be the outcome for
India), possibility of rate hikes after the Union Budget, likely populist Budget, the uptrend in the domestic economy can largely be expected sooner or later given the increased risk appetite among the
investors.
Investors can consider ETF route to participate in the Bull Run, which is a more convenient way to invest in equity market compared to other investment options. ETFs are suited for investors who want to
follow and are willing to get returns in line with index returns. First time investors who wish to enter into equity market also can consider opting the index ETF route. Investing through staggered investment
mode like DIYSIP will further help them to accumulate cost averaging units over periods.
Provided, investors with medium risk profile can consider investing in broader market ETFs like Nifty ETFs to participate in the bull run. Nifty ETFs give a chance to participate in the most happening large
cap stocks that will ride on growth in Indian economy. Eg, GS Nifty BeES.
Investors having high risk appetite and wishing to participate in the upside can allocate a portion of investment in mid and small cap mutual fund ETFs as they have been the front runners and rise faster
than large cap counterparts in a bull run. Mid and small cap stocks are high beta stocks compared to large cap counterparts. They depreciate more when market corrects but appreciate more when the rally
starts. Further, many small & midcap companies are seen attractive on valuations. Also, many companies in this space that have emerging businesses and where there is growth will reward investors who
stay invested for a long time regardless of the market they are in. Eg, ‘GS Junior BeES’ and ‘Motilal Oswal MoSt Shares Midcap 100 ETF’.
Investors who have faith in the growth prospects of PSU stocks given the expectation over the economic recovery in the domestic front, can consider CPSE ETF. CPSE ETF is a semi diversified and thematic
ETF which tracks and provide returns corresponding to the CPSE Index, an index comprising of select heavyweight Central Public Sector Companies listed at NSE. Banking sector cannot be ignored by
investors who have faith on economic recovery of any country. GS Banking ETF and GS PSU Banking ETF are the better choice for investors who bet on banking sector.

ETFs and their Benefits:
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are open ended mutual fund schemes, which are traded on stock exchanges like a share and seek investment returns that correspond to the performance of a particular index
like NIFTY or CNX Midcap Index. ETFs combine the benefit of a mutual fund scheme with the convenience of trading like a share.
Lower expense ratio: ETFs are less expensive in comparison to other mutual fund schemes. The expense ratio of ETFs is the lowest among mutual fund schemes which ranging from 0.25% to 1% as they no
need of requiring the service of fund managers and analysts. Moreover, there is less marketing cost and commissions.
Diversification: Investments through ETFs are widely diversified as indices are constructed to represent performance of the stock market as a whole. It reduces the overall risk of one’s portfolio. ETFs enable
investors to access many stocks at a time by investing in a single option.
Transparency: Investors can access the portfolio composition of index any day at any point of time. On the other hand, portfolios of other mutual funds schemes are declared by AMCs once in a month.
No fund manager Risk: As the objective of such schemes is to mimic the performance of index which they track, they construct the portfolios same as the tracking indexes. So these funds stay away from
the risk of subjective performances and biases of fund managers.
Liquidity: ETFs are listed and traded on stock exchanges like equity shares. They can be bought and sold on real time basis at currently available prices at any time during trading hours. However, AMCs
arrange to absorb any excess supply of units that an investor would like to sell or create fresh units when the demand for units is large enough. On the other hand, other funds including index funds that are
available only at day‐end NAV.
However, investors have to consider some disadvantages of the ETFs such as mandate of Demat to invest in ETFs, brokerage and other transaction charges, premiums and discounts of market price to NAV,
Tracking Error, impact cost, etc.
Benefits of investing in an Index:
•
Investing in an index is considered as efficient investment option as the index includes large actively traded stocks from diversified and performing industries.
•
Indices are revamped periodically representing the changes in the importance of sectors and growth cycle of stocks.
•
The world changes, so the index should change. Investors benefit out of these changes as they need not take a call on entering or exiting a particular sector or stock.
