Best Index Mutual Funds for Investments 2019

Updated on October 16, 2019 , 105788 views

Index Funds refer to the Mutual Fund schemes whose portfolio is constructed using a market index as a base. In other words, the performance of an index fund is dependent on the performance of a particular index. These schemes are passively managed. These funds contain shares in the similar proportion as they are in a particular index.

In India, many of the schemes use Nifty or Sensex as the base to construct their portfolio. For example, if the Nifty portfolio constitutes of SBI shares whose proportion is 12% then; the Nifty Index fund will also have 12% equity shares.

Index funds passively track the performance of a particular index. Unlike actively-managed funds, index funds are not meant to outperform the market, but mimic the performance of the index. When an investor is planning to invest in index funds, they should pay attention to the tracking error of the fund. The tracking error measures the deviation of fund return from benchmark it is tracking. It is the difference between the index fund return and its benchmark return. The lower the tracking error, the better the fund’s performance.

Why to Invest in Index Funds in India?

Some of the benefits of investing in Index Funds are:

1. Diversification

An index is a collection of different stocks and securities. They offer diversification to the investor which is the main motive of Asset Allocation. This ensures that the investor does not have all his eggs in one basket.

2. Less Expenses

Index fund has a lower operating expenses as compared to other mutual fund schemes. Here, the fund managers need not have a separate team of research analysts to carry out an in-depth research of the companies against, which a significant amount is spent. In index funds, the manager just needs to replicate the index. Therefore, the expense ratio is lower in case of index funds.

3. Less Managerial Influence

Since the fund simply follows the movement of the particular index, the manager doesn’t have to choose what stocks to invest in. This is a plus point since the manager’s own style of Investing (which may not be in sync with the market at times) does not creep in.

Type of Index Mutual Funds

The weightage of a company in the Sensex or Nifty depends on its free float market capitalization. It is a percentage of the total market capitalization of the index. So, if the market capitalization of a company is Rs 1 crore, while that of the index if Rs 200 crore, its stock has a weightage of 0.5%.

1. SENSEX Index Funds

These index funds track BSE SENSEX as bechmark index & invest in 30 companies on BSE Sensex based on weightage login as discussed above. These Types of Mutual Funds are backed by ETF's (Exchange Traded Fund) traded on exchange.

2. NIFTY Index Funds

These index funds track NSE NIFTY 50 as bechmark index & invest in 50 companies on Nifty 50 based on weightage login as discussed above. These types of Mutual Funds are backed by ETF's (Exchange Traded Funds) traded on exchange.

Risks of Investing In Index Funds

No Flexibility of Index Mutual Funds

One major disadvantage of investing in index funds is the lack of flexibility. Since the funds just track the index, they can miss out on the opportunity to make higher returns which may arise due to market anomalies and surprises that are not connected to the index. Typically, value stocks would find it very difficult to be part of an index.

Market Risk on Index Mutual Funds

Index funds have a direct relation with the market. So, when the stock markets fall as a whole, so does the value of the index mutual fund.

Despite having a few disadvantages, top index funds can be beneficial for investors who want to invest in equities with a minimal risk factor. As per experts, investors are suggested to include 5-6% of Index Funds in their investment portfolio to make best out of their investment.
