Varun Sridhar, CEO, Paytm Money said, “We are excited to launch India's first ETF MasterClass with an esteemed group of experts. We continue with our mission to allow Indians to build wealth the right way and with "learn first" as the basic value. ETFs are a great tool as they have the lowest expense ratio when compared to other investment products and are simple to understand. A retail investor can diversify and can get exposure to various asset classes at the lowest cost. We expect over 1 lakh Indians to invest over the next 12 months and thus an education initiative delivered digitally is a great start. We are using technology to educate people on wealth management in a way it has never been done before! I strongly recommend everyone to attend this event because the best in the business would be giving out valuable advice and ETFs are going to be the most popular way of investing in the coming decade"

Paytm Money said that it has started a campaign to promote ETF as a must-have wealth creation product and encourage more Indians to invest in them as compared to other available products. They are cost-efficient as compared to traditional mutual funds due to lower commissions and higher returns which makes it a valuable wealth product for new to investments users. Trading in ETFs additionally presents new short-term income opportunities for investors.  

The company further said that ETFs are expected in the next 2 years to account for 20 percent of the overall AUMs for the company. The product has immense growth prospects and in the next five years would become the top investment avenue for Indians as it happened in the US and other markets.

Chintan Haria, Head, Product Development & Strategy, ICICI Prudential AMC said that “Evolved investors are preferring investments in smart beta ETFs where portfolio constituents are derived on the basis of certain factors such as Low Vol, Alpha, Value to name a few.”

Mukesh Agarwal, CEO - NSE Indices said “We at NSE believe that ETFs are appropriate investment products for retail investors providing low cost and transparent exposure to capital markets. NSE will continue its efforts to grow the ETF markets in India”.
