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.

  • Siva

    Hello Suresh garu,

    Is it advisable to invest in this NFO or is it better to already invest in an existing fund from another house which has the same FANG+ investment philosophy?

    Any advantages / disadvantages either way?

    Thanks,
    Siva

    • Hello Siva, Currently there are funds that invests in US stocks / NASDAQ 100 index etc., There is no fund that invests in FANG+. We could see growth in such funds (history talks). I would personally like to invest in such funds along with NASDAQ 100 index also (diversify between these two)

  • rohan

    where we can invest money in safe instrument where we can get 9% to 10% yearly return.

    • Rohan, If this option would have been available, I would have been the first person to invest. One can expect 10% to 12% returns in equity and mutual funds but that comes with risk. There are zero safe instruments that provide 10% returns.

    Hi Suresh Sir,

    Good article, informative…..thank you..

    Regarding taxation, what about the tax if we invest from our NRE accounts directly and i am being a NRE account holder / working abroad , currently not in any tax brackets. If i invest in overseas funds, how would be tax calculated. So far i haven’t paid any taxes and not under tax regime.

    Please advise….

    Thank you,

    Pushpan KV.

    • Hello Pushpan, This is international mutual fund and returns from such fund would be taxed like debt funds (< 3 years STCG and > 3 years LTCG). Since your query is NRE, this is little complicated as there are several rules and guidelines for NRE accounts. Refer this link. https://groww.in/p/nre-account/ which has some insights to it

  • Neeraj Puri

    Q – How they will be taxed ?

    Q – Are these funds are subject to tax in US also?

    • Taxation on international mutual funds would be based on tenure
      1) Short Term Capital Gain (STCG): If you redeem this fund within three years, then it is termed as Short Term Capital Gains. These gains are added to your income and are taxed according to the tax bracket you fall in.
      2) Long Term Capital Gain (LTCG): If you invest for 3+ years, then your returns are classified as Long Term Capital Gain (LTCG). Such gains are taxed at the rate of 20% percent after indexation.

      Regd capital gains taxation in US, yes, these would be taxed as per US tax laws.
