Ahmedabad, July 26, 2023.
Edelweiss Mutual Fund has made a significant move to benefit passive investors by reducing the expense ratio across its Passive Equity Index schemes in direct plans. The expense ratio has been cut to a record-low of 0.05 percent, the lowest among Nifty 50 index funds in India. This reduction aims to boost investor returns and minimize tracking errors for passive funds.
The expense ratio reduction is expected to bring down tracking error and tracking difference, which is the difference between the returns of the fund and the benchmark index it aims to replicate. This shall help these low cost passive funds stay closer to their benchmark performance, giving investors more accurate exposure to the index they are tracking.
This strategic decision by Edelweiss Mutual Fund, known for its innovative and low-cost offerings, reinforces its commitment to provide good passive solutions to investors. The fund house achieved a notable milestone earlier this year by crossing 1 lakh crore AUM. With this latest move, Edelweiss Mutual Fund sets a new industry benchmark for expense ratios in India, attracting investors seeking optimal returns with minimized costs.
