Top 5 Best Performing Index Funds To Consider In 2021-22

|

A portfolio of stocks or bonds that replicates the performance of a financial market index is known as an index fund. As a result, these funds are predicted to produce similar results to the index. They imitate a segment of the stock market or the entire market in some situations. Index funds are also important when it comes to portfolio diversification, which is a strategy that involves spreading your investments over a variety of assets and securities in order to balance off or limit the risk an investor takes on. When a person buys an index fund, he or she is exposed to a wide range of stocks. Here are the top 5 best performing SIPs based on 3-year returns.

Conclusion

Conclusion

When considering investing in index funds, investors should consider the tracking error of the fund. The tracking error is a metric that quantifies how far a fund's return deviates from the benchmark it is monitoring. It is the difference between the return of an index fund and the return of its benchmark. The greater the fund's performance, the lower the tracking error.
