Mirae Asset NYSE FANG+ ETF Fund of Fund NFO – Should you invest?

Mirae Asset NYSE FANG+ ETF Fund of Fund invests in ETF that would invest in NYSE FANG+ Index. Earlier, I have recommended a few times to invest in Motilal Oswal NASDAQ ETF that outperformed in the last 5-10 years. This NYSE FANG+ Index too outperformed and generated 32% annualized returns in last 7 years compared to NASDAQ 100 which generated 12.5% annualized returns. While this new fund is good, this is high risk fund considering the short term performance + overseas investment. If you are high risk investor, you can invest in this new fund for 5-10 years time frame. Moderate to low risk investors should avoid such funds.

    NAV of this MAFANG fund was Rs. 10 as per the prospectus but after allottment it was put at Rs. 48.60 and accordingly units got reduced by nearly 5 times. why it is so?

    • Hello Saindranath, The NAV of mutual fund would start at Rs 10 during NFO offer and later would go up or down depending on the performance.

      But looks you have invested in ETF where the unit value is showing 49 now. The NAV of ETF would be computed by the net investments (total investments minus liabilities) / total shares outstanding. As an example if mutual fund collected Rs 1,000 and invested in company at Rs 500 per share i.e. 2 shares only. The NAV would be 1,000/2 = Rs 500. This is how ETF NAV is computed which is completely different from mutual fund NAV.

    Hello Suresh Ji,
    I don’t have any foreign exposure in my portfolio. Should i go with Mirae Asset NYSE FANG+ ETF Fund of Fund??? and what is the difference between Mirae Asset NYSE FANG+ ETF & Mirae Asset NYSE FANG+ ETF Fund of Fund. Pls give your valuable comments.

    • Yes, you can invest in such funds, but don’t expect immediate returns as stock markets are at peak even in US. First one is ETF (you need demat account for this) and second one is mutual fund that invests in this ETF (you do not need demat account, you can just invest like any other mutual fund). I would recommend go for second option.

    Hi Suresh

    Very good info. As I am already invested in Nasdaq100, US Bluechip & Parag Parikh FlexiCap

    Do you think investing in this will add more diversification?

  • SHRIRAM

    Hi I am already investing in

    ICICI US Bluechip
    Nasdaq 100
    Parag Parikh

    Do you think adding this would be overlapping or diversification?

    What is your opinion? Should I avoid or invest?

    • Hello Shriram, Since you have two international funds and another flexicap fund that invests in US markets too, there is an overlapping of funds. If your overall portfolio has 10% or 15% from international funds, then avoid, else you can consider this fund too.
