  • These ETFs have historically demonstrated their ability to have low tracking error, benefiting the fund
  • The acquisition of some of the largest non-financial companies
  • An opportunity to add top international expertise
  • Better execution ability
  • NASDAQ 100 Index

    The NASDAQ 100 index includes the 100 largest non-financial companies on the NASDAQ stock market, based on market capitalization. It is home to global growth and innovation. The current NASDAQ 100 index is a technology-heavy index and has an understanding of emerging sectors of the economy such as healthcare, technology and consumer. The former is led by some of the world’s most innovative and rapidly expanding non-financial companies that generate the majority of their revenue from various countries.

    In addition to providing the benefit of global exposure and potentially reducing geographic risk to investors, the NASDAQ-100 can also act as a hedge against a fall in the value of the Rs.

    Chandresh Nigam, MD & CEO, Axis AMC said, “As investors grow and take greater interest in their wealth creation journey, the paradigms of asset allocation are changing dramatically. With global boundaries slowly blurring, investors are eager to gain access to some of global growth stories, which were previously not easily possible. With the Axis NASDAQ 100 Fund of Funds, we are bringing investors the opportunity to gain global exposure.”
