Considering, the ease of entertainment and quality of content available on OTT platforms, there was a significant rise in app downloads and viewership amid the pandemic. In addition, customers' interest on e-commerce websites has also increased.

Fund Outlook - Mirae Asset NYSE FANG+ ETF Fund of Fund

Mirae Asset NYSE FANG+ ETF FoF aims to follow a passive investment strategy by tracking and replicating the performance of the underlying scheme that invests in the units of NYSE FANG+ Index.

This scheme allows Indian investors to take a concentrated and equal weighted exposure in 10 high-growth innovative technology companies that are at the forefront of many megatrends by passively investing in the underlying scheme. The FANG+ companies are leaders in their respective fields, and they are transforming the world we live in through constant innovation.

By investing in this scheme, investors can take low cost exposure in global markets and grab the opportunity for wealth creation through international diversification. In last 5 years, NYSE FANG+ index has significantly outperformed both NASDAQ 100 index and NIFTY 50 index.

However, keep in mind this scheme would invest passively in the units of the underlying scheme that invests in the growth stocks of the benchmark index NYSE FANG+, which is a pure equity index. The scheme will be investing 95% of its assets in international equities, which makes it a highly risky proposition.

Though you can benefit international diversification in equities under NYSE FANG+ Index, you must ensure that you hold a high-risk profile to survive the market volatility, long-term investment horizon and investment objective that aligns with the fund.
