Bharat Bond ETF, India’s first bond exchange-traded fund recently opened to a great reception by Indian investors. With several important reasons to subscribe, this ETF is quickly emerging as a winning idea for people looking to diversify their sluggish portfolios and generate wealth.

Managed by Edelweiss Mutual Fund, this new Exchange Traded Fund or ETF offer will allow investors to buy and sell bonds through an ETF structure at a significantly lower rate than conventional bonds.

Approved by the government of India this December, the fund will invest in central public sector bonds with a similar maturity as the scheme. Investors can start purchasing units at a very affordable Rs1,000 with a low expense ratio of close to 0.0005%. Being an ETF, after the NFO (new fund offer), units are held in an investors Demat account and can be easily purchased and sold on the stock exchange during trading hours. On maturity, investors get back their investment and any returns accumulated.
