India Infoline Asset Management Company Ltd (IIFL AMC), is launching a New Fund Offer (NFO) IIFL Nifty ETF on September 28, 2011. This is an Open-ended, Index- linked, Exchange Traded Fund. The investment objective of this fund is to provide returns, before fees and expenses, which correspond as closely as possible to the total returns of securities as represented by S&P CNX Nifty (Nifty) subject to tracking error. All the fees and expenses are capped at 0.25% or a quarter of a rupee for managing Rs 100 for one year. As on date, there is no other equity fund in the country which has a cost structure lower than this. The NFO will open on September 28, 2011 and close on October 12, 2011. As per latest report from CRISIL viz S&P CRISIL SPIVA June 2011, Among equity-oriented funds, majority of large cap and diversified equity funds underperformed their benchmark indices, viz, the S&P CNX Nifty and the S&P CNX 500, respectively, in all three time periods of analysis (1, 3 and 5 years). Mr. R. Venkataraman, Managing Director of India Infoline Ltd, pointed out CRISIL study reiterates many other studies and our own experience that for a small investor the leading benchmark index is a much better way to play the market. In true IIFL tradition we combine the best of product with the lowest cost. IIFL Nifty ETF will revolutionize the mutual fund industry, the way broking industry was when we launched our 5paisa.com, more than a decade ago. The Chairman, Mr. Nirmal Jain added We are committed to build this business in a customer centric way over the long term, resorting to no short cuts. Globally ETFs account for around 5% of funds, while in India they account for only 1% of the industry. There are more than 1300 ETFs in the USA alone, whereas there are only 30 ETFs in India. This underlines the huge untapped potential of the ETF industry. IIFL Nifty ETF will invest in the securities which are constituents of the S&P CNX Nifty Index, in the same proportion as the Index. The Index tracks the behavior of a portfolio of blue chip companies, the largest and most liquid Indian securities. S&P CNX Nifty stocks represent about 63.94% of the total free
