What are Index Funds?

An investor cannot directly invest in an index but can instead invest through a mutual fund called Index Funds. In other words, it is a passive way of investing in stock markets. Also known as index-tracked mutual funds, it tracks the benchmark index. All the stocks present in the index have some weightage in the portfolio of the fund. These funds are passively managed and operate at minimum cost offering potentially higher returns due to their lower fees.

An Index fund or exchange-traded fund (ETF) is a mutual fund designed to match, and not outdo, the performance and movement of its underlying indices such as Nifty or BSE Sensex. Best Index Funds are those that guarantee a performance identical to the index and have the lowest tracking error (the difference in the performance of the index and the fund). Top index funds provide excellent market exposure of risk and return to their investors and are considered ideal for investors.
