Motilal Oswal AMC announces launch of 2 Large-Cap Index funds

Mumbai   03-Dec-2019

Motilal Oswal Asset Management Company Ltd. (Motilal Oswal AMC), one of India’s fastest growing boutique AMC has launched 2 large cap Index (passive) funds:

 • Motilal Oswal Nifty 50 Index Fund
 • Motilal Oswal Nifty Next 50 Index Fund

The NFO for these two funds opens on December 3 and closes on December 17, 2019.

These two new funds are pure index funds, based on the most popular indices in India, Large-Cap Nifty 50 & Nifty Next 50. 

Large-Cap Index funds have a purity of allocation to large caps and provide stability as they are large in size, dominant in their sectors and generally have good customer reputation. It provides additional income in the form of dividends as many Large-Caps generally pay steady dividends. Large-Cap index companies are more transparent in terms of statements and workings leads to ease in decision making for long term investors. The accuracy in evaluation is more due to established knowledge of company history, and wider coverage of current activities and financial statements. 

The Large-Cap index fund may be expected to give returns closest to Index as the active Large-Cap funds include some percentage of midcap & small cap companies in their portfolios. In the recent past, midcap and small cap companies have underperformed significantly and in any case for investors desirous of managing a pure allocation, mixing of market caps to beat indices is not ideal because it increases their risk.
Efficiencies in Large-Cap in increasing by each passing days. Hence it is likely to be incrementally difficult for active Large-Cap funds to generate considerable alpha. Hence a pure Large-Cap index fund should be considered as one of the options during asset allocation.  

Large-Cap are becoming bigger with each passing day. These two Large-Cap index funds by Motilal Oswal AMC, may offer a good option to have in ones portfolio for wealth creation. 

Speaking on the launch, Mr. Aashish Somaiyaa, MD & CEO, MOAMC said, “These launches are in continuation of our recent efforts to retailize passive investing through investor friendly open ended index fund formats with ability to size at a bite size as low as Rs 500/- . We have received enthusiastic response to our index fund launches as they have gained prominence amongst digitally savvy DIY investors as well as distributors and advisors who take low cost tools for asset allocation and financial planning very seriously.”

Mr. Pratik Oswal, Head of passive funds, MOAMC said, “With the launch of the Nifty 50 and Nifty Next 50 index funds – Motilal Oswal AMC is now able to provide low-cost asset allocation building blocks
