Frequently Asked Question

  • Passive investing is an investing strategy that tracks a market-weighted index. It broadly refers to a buy-and-hold portfolio strategy for long-term investment horizons, with minimal trading in the market.
  • Investing in Index funds and ETFs are the most common form of passive investing.
  • An index fund is a type of mutual fund which constructs its portfolio by tracking the composition of a standard market index such as the Nifty 50 or the Sensex. The fund not only invests in stocks which constitute the benchmark index but also the same proportion.
  • For example – a rise of 1% in the index will lead to a 1% increase in the fund and vice versa. There are numerous indexes (Nifty50, Nifty 500, Nifty Smallcap 150) and many others.
  • An index fund is a diversified equity fund delivers returns in line with the index it tracks. For example – a midcap 150 index fund will track the nifty midcap 150 index.
  • The fund manager simply replicates the portfolio of the index in quantity, stocks and proportion. The fund manager has no discretion over stock selection/ strategy of the mutual fund and so the fund has no fund manager bias.
