Groww Mutual Fund announced the launch of the Groww Nifty Total Market Index Fund. The scheme opened for public subscription on October 03, 2023, and will close on October 17, 2023.
Q. What kind of mutual fund scheme is this?
This is an open-ended scheme tracking the Nifty Total Market Index.
The Nifty Total Market Index consists of around 750 stocks across large, mid, and small-cap segments. While large-cap stocks account for 72.03 per cent of their weightage, about 27.97 per cent are attributed to mid, small, and microcap stocks of their weightage in the index. This composition seeks to balance the steadiness of large-cap companies with the growth prospects of mid and small ones. The index represents around 96 per cent of the NSE's total market capitalisation, in comparison to the 49 per cent covered by the Nifty 50. This broad coverage paints a holistic picture of India's stock market.
In addition, its diversified nature minimises risks tied to individual sectors. Historically, this index has outperformed the Nifty 50 in terms of both total and risk-adjusted returns, and its ten-year drawdowns are comparable to those of the Nifty 50 Index.
