Before we begin about ICICI Prudential Nifty50 Equal Weight Index Fund, do you know about a general Nifty
50 Index Fund?
Such an index allocates investment to equity shares of the top 50 companies listed on NSE based on their market capitalization. i.e.
it allocates more money in the securities of companies with higher market capitalization and lesser in companies with lower market capitalization.
Now, what if there’s a scheme that avoids this market capitalization bias and gives same weightage to every company within the index?
Introducing, ICICI Prudential Nifty50 Equal Weight Index Fund, an open ended Index scheme replicating Nifty50 Equal Weight Index.

• NIFTY50 Equal Weight Index represents an alternative weighting strategy to its market capitalization
based parent index,
which is the NIFTY 50 Index. This index includes the same companies as its parent index, however, weighted equally.
Therefore, in this scheme the performance of all the securities that form a part of the parent index (NIFTY 50 Index)
are measured and each company in the index are assigned equal weights at the time of review.
• The index is rebalanced on a quarterly basis, i.e. the weightage of the securities is set equally on every rebalancing date.
• The index is reconstituted on a quarterly basis, i.e. there might be inclusions and exclusions made from the index based on the
market conditions on every reconstituting date.
An Equal Weight Index has empirically higher dividend yield as compared to a Market Capitalization Weighted Index. Therefore, this scheme aims to offer better profits/returns.
By assigning equal weightage to all the securities in Index, this scheme gives exposure to the stocks of NIFTY 50 companies and thereby aims to offer diversification to your portfolio.
An Equal Market Weight Index has the tendency to outperform Market Capitalization Index when there is market rally. i.e. when the market substantially moves upwards during a specific period of time.
As an investor, if you aim to earn potential returns and meet your long-term goals, you may consider investing in this scheme!
