Good to know

Exchange-traded Fund (ETF)
An ETF is a mutual fund that tracks the performance of sectors, commodities or stock market indices. Unlike other equity schemes, it can be traded on the exchanges just like a stock. ETFs can contain many types of investments, including stocks, commodities and bonds.

Investment objective

As income levels, population and urbanisation continue to rise in India, the consumption of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) like toothpaste, biscuits, beverages, shampoo and cooking oil, has grown multi-fold over the last two decades. In fact, the FMCG sector is the fourth largest industry in India today. 

With India’s consumption story still intact and expected to continue on its upward trajectory, having exposure to the FMCG sector is important for investors. 

ICICI Prudential FMCG ETF provides an opportunity to benefit from India’s strong consumption growth. The fund will track the performance and weightage of Nifty FMCG Index, which includes 15 FMCG companies. These companies manufacture and sell non-durable and mass-consumption products. 

Most importantly, the FMCG Index has outperformed the Nifty50 in 8 out of the last 11 years, till 2020. So here’s an opportunity for investors to not just consume but also invest in FMCG products.
