“The upcoming Bharat Bond ETF which is sixth in the Bharat Bond ETF series will track the newly launched Nifty BHARAT Bond Index maturing in 2033. The first Bharat Bond ETFs tracking the Nifty Bharat Bond indices were launched in December 2019, Mukesh Agarwal, CEO, NSE Indices, said.
“The launch of the Bharat Bond ETFs has also opened up the target maturity date index funds category with overall assets under management of more than ₹1.30 lakh crore. Along with existing five target maturity indices, the launch of the new Bharat Bond index maturing in 2033 will provide more investment choices to fixed income investors and will help create a ladder structure of various maturities,” Agarwal added.
