Scheme Strategy

  • Fund seeks to replicate the Nifty 50 Index, by buying the same number of stocks in the same proportion as they are in the index and do not take any active sector or stock exposure that is different from what is seen on the chosen index.
  • The constituents of an index represent the largest companies across the sectors, which are the most liquid and lower company-specific risk.
  • Fund’s lowest cost of operations relative to actively managed funds is an added advantage.

Tarrakki’s View

UTI NIFTY Index fund is a passively managed fund that endeavors to minimize the return differential between the fund and the underlying index. We prefer investing in an index fund (NIFTY/SENSEX) fund versus an actively managed large-cap fund. An index fund has a significantly lower expense ratio versus a large-cap fund (0.10% v/s 1.25%). This lower expense ratio will help investors generate higher returns versus several large-cap funds who fail to beat the index. This fund is recommended for the investors who want to invest for the long term. The risk involved is moderately high.
