This is the Motilal Oswal MSCI EAFE Top 100 Select Index Fund (yes, one long fund name!), a passive fund that will track the MSCI EAFE Top 100 Select Index. This index represents the largest stocks in developed markets in Europe, Australasia and the Far East. That means the US, the key global market, is not part of this index.
For a long-term investor, is an ETF a better or poorer option compared to index funds? Which is more expensive in the long term? Can one replace your recommendations of index funds (or FoF, like Motilal Oswal Nasdaq 100 FoF) with the corresponding ETF? It’s a little confusing because your Prime Funds and some of your portfolios recommend ICICI Prudential Nifty Next 50 Index fund, but ICICI Prudential Nifty Next 50 ETF is not recommended in Prime ETFs or portfolios. Shouldn’t the performance be same? And what is the impact of tracking error on investor returns?
