Hang Seng BeES ETF: India's First International ETF

The fixation of investing in Chinese markets with as low as Rs.10,000 combined with the growing popularity of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) marked the launch of the Hang Seng Benchmark Exchange Traded Scheme (NSE Symbol-HNGSNGBEES) in February this year. The fund is the brainchild of Benchmark Asset Management Company India Pvt. Ltd, which carved a niche for itself in the Indian Mutual Fund Industry by successfully launching first ETF in Asia (not only India) Nifty BeEs. The company is also credited with launching the Gold ETF first time in India.

The Benchmark's open-ended ETF tracks Hong Kong's Hang Seng index, one of the oldest and among the most popular indices on the Hong Kong stock exchange. The index currently comprises 42 stocks and can have a maximum of 50 stocks. The ETF, which is also investing in mutual funds, or ETFs that track the Hang Seng Index themselves, is the first international ETF to have emerged out of India.

The daily net asset value (NAV) of a single unit of the fund is arrived at, by calculating the daily Hang Seng index close multiplied by the currency rate of Hong Kong dollar-Indian rupee and divided by 100.
