I included an ETF that invests in both China and India when I first created the India ETF list because there were just so few that focus solely on India.
Since that time, there have been quite a few additions in this space, and now you see a much greater variety – there is an ETF that tracks Nifty, one that invests based on its own methodology, an ETN, leveraged ETFs, one that invests in infrastructure, and another one in small caps.
There are 7 ETFs and 1 ETN that solely focus on India, and Wisdom Treeâ€™s India Earnings Fund is easily the biggest with assets under management of 1.18 billion dollars. It also happens to have performed the best year till date with 11.71% returns.
