Analyst Report

SMIN offers exposure to a portfolio of nearly 240 small cap Indian stocks, meaning that this fund may serve as a better “pure play” on the Indian economy than products dominated by mega cap equities such as EPI, INP, or INDA. SMIN can exhibit significant volatility in the short term, but its long term potential is tremendous, especially if India’s economy continues to expand at an impressive rate. This ETF is similar to SCIF and SCIN, which also offer exposure to small Cap Indian stocks; however, SMIN boasts a deeper portfolio and features a lower expense fee than both of its competitors. SMIN is an attractive, well diversified small cap offering that could serve as a useful complement to large cap India exposure.
