Pratik Oswal, Head of Passive Funds, Motilal Oswal Asset Management Company Ltd said, “With the Motilal Oswal Nifty Realty ETF and Motilal Oswal Nifty Smallcap 250 ETF, we lead the charge in unlocking the untapped potential and opportunities of these distinctive investment category. We believe these segments hold immense potential and unique investment opportunities in the industry.”

He further added “Realty has been one of the most underperforming sector post-financial crisis. It is one of the largest employment generators. After RERA being implemented for a while, the sector may offer immense potential and unique investment opportunities that have been overlooked. Investors who are bullish on the Realty sector but find stock picking very risky, can use this ETF as an effective investment opportunity for long-term capital growth. Over the past 12 months, the Realty sector has recovered sharply from decadal underperformance. Smallcaps have a compelling track record of delivering relatively higher returns compared to its counterparts, albeit at a higher risk. Investors are encouraged to consult their financial advisors, a prudent allocation of 10-15% to this ETF may help enhance overall portfolio returns.”
