Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
The best India ETF in 2012 is a small cap fund, reports IndiaETFs.com. Indeed two small cap ETFs take the top performance spots through the middle of 2012. The best performer is the Market Vectors Small Cap Index ETF, gaining close to 11%. The EG Shares Small Cap ETF trails with gains of around 8%. The two funds began the year strong as Indian markets rallied through the middle of February. Since then they continue to keep their performance advantage versus other India ETFs despite a four month decline in Indian markets. Investors haven't fully discovered these two ETFs however, as the funds have only $61 million in assets between them.
In contrast to the small cap funds, the largest India ETF is the WisdomTree India Earnings ETF, with $740 million in assets. It has gained around 4.5% year to date. The second most widely owned India ETF is the PowerShares India ETF with $360 million in assets. It has suffered a tough year, losing .3% thus far.
