ETF Securities India study tour to explore dynamics of world’s 5th largest economy

Feb 25, 2020

Download Media Release 25 February 2020 - ETF Securities India study tour to explore dynamics of world’s 5th largest economy ETF Securities is kickstarting the year with an exploratory tour to India, along with a group of leading financial advisers, to better understand the growth opportunities within the Indian economy. Led by Kanish Chugh, co-Head of Sales, ETF Securities, the group which includes seven financial planners from six Australian financial planning firms will visit India from 3-6 March. “It is not common for an ETF provider such as us, who only has passive funds, to do a study tour to explore overseas markets. However, we believe in seeking out intelligent alternatives to create new funds and find a way to provide clients and investors greater insight into the exposure. We are taking a page out of the active managers book and applying it in the passive world. “It is now a well-established fact that more and more ETF investors are attracted towards global equity portfolios. Given this backdrop, it makes it difficult to ignore India when it is tipped to grow to be the 3rd largest economy within a decade. “The genesis of this tour came about as we witnessed a surge of interest in our ETFS Reliance India Nifty 50 ETF (ASX code: NDIA) which was launched last year as the first Indian-focused ETF on the ASX. “This prompted us to dig deeper and get more on ground knowledge of not only how the Indian market operates but also look behind the scenes of innovative companies listed on Nifty50, one of the most traded indexes in the world, so we can feed the knowledge and insights back to our clients and investors. “India has started 2020 with positive signs of economic recovery, after a slowdown period.” They include: Manufacturing PMI: In the third month of expansion, the manufacturing PMI increased to 55.30 points which is near an 8-year high level on the back of the increased new business, output, exports, input buying, and employment. Services PMI: The largest portion of the Indian economy – service sector – has also started to show the signs of revival. PMI rose to a five-month high of 53.3 in December 2019, easily beating market expectations of 51.4. Non-financial indicators: 11 of the 16 non-financial indicators such as the output of passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, Coal India Limited, refinery output, etc have improved on-year in Q3 FY2020, compared to the previous quarter. Agriculture growth: The first advance estimates of 2019-20 of the area and production of various horticulture crops released earlier this month expect the production to rise. Higher FDI: Even amid political instability and economic slowdown, FDI in the first half of the current financial year surged 17 per cent on-year to Rs 1.8 lakh crore from Rs 1.5 lakh crore. Rating agency Credit Ratings said there are expectations of further inflows in the FDI investment as India continues to remain one of the favoured destinations for the investment by foreigners. It added that in the second half of FY20, FDI equity inflows are estimated to the tune of around USD 25 billion. Notes The ETFS Reliance India Nifty 50 ETF is designed as a convenient, efficient and transparent way to access the upper echelons of the Indian stock market. The Fund aims to provide investors with exposure to the 50 largest Indian companies by market capitalisation that are listed on the National Stock Exchange (NSE). It accounts for 13 sectors representing about 66.8% of the free float market capitalisation of the stocks listed on the NSE. Among the companies included in the Nifty50are HDFC Bank, Tata Consultancy Services, Housing Development Finance Corp, Reliance Industries and Hindustan Unilever.

Media Release - ETF Securities’ TECH milestone highlights appeal of IT stocks

Nov 20, 2019

SYDNEY, 19 November 2019 – ETF Securities, a leading independent ETF provider, has notched an important milestone with its ETFS Morningstar Global Technology ETF (ASX code: TECH) passing the $100 million mark. The ETF, launched in April 2017 and offering investors global exposure to 37 technology companies from the US, Japan, Germany and Australia, has returned 27.1 per cent per annum since inception, outperforming the Nasdaq 100 Index by more than 3.5 per cent per annum. ETF Securities Chief Executive Officer Kris Walesby says: “TECH’s performance since April 2017 reflects the benefits of only investing in quality companies and the outcome that’s achieved by screening them according to their Morningstar Economic Moat rating. “This rating measure examines companies from the perspective of their business model in terms of being able to defend their market position in a sector where disruption is often second nature. “Moat ratings are only afforded to those companies that boast well-established, high-quality businesses. This rating model is then sub-divided into Wide Moat and Narrow Moat companies, with the former having the highest rating due to the expectation that they will be able to maintain above average returns for the next two decades.” TECH holds 14 Wide Moat companies and 23 Narrow Moat companies. Walesby says TECH has also benefited from the global growth in the Information Technology (IT) sector over the past five years. “It’s been a remarkable phenomenon with the IT sector contributing nearly one-third of total equity growth over this period -- more than double consumer discretionary, the next best performing sector.” “Although this growth has not enjoyed a smooth trajectory, the reality is technology is having an enormous impact on our daily lives and is likely to do so for the foreseeable future. It’s this growth that TECH is capturing.” Walesby says while the technology sector offers exciting opportunities for investors, it also comes with risks. “Investors need to be cognisant of ensuring that growth comes at a reasonable price, look for attractively price companies with strong fundamentals and sound business models, and diversify globally.” Source: Morningstar Direct, as at 31 October 2019 ETF Securities offers three other ETFs in its Future Present product suite: Global Robotics andAutomation (ASX: ROBO); Battery and Tech Lithium (ASX: ACDC); and Biotech (ASX: CURE).
