iShares MSCI India ETF: Investing In The 'Big Picture'
How did we identify this ETF:
A complete pool of 2100+ ETFs are screened on various qualitative and quantitative parameters to evaluate efficiency, tradability and fit. The metrics used were alpha, beta and R - squared with respect to the segment benchmark and ETF specific metrics such as expense ratio, drawdown, volatility and the overall rating. We evaluate all ETFs and assign a composite score based on our analysis and then select the top ones in a category based on that comprehensive score by the inhouse research / quant analysts team. Launched in early 2012, INDA has since attracted a huge asset base, and does a great job tracking its index, often costing less to hold than its headline fee indicates. The strategy is rebalanced on a quarterly basis with the rebalancing mechanism being determined by an algorithm that takes into account the overall performance of the strategy so far.
