Ishares Undercuts India


iShares under-prices on Indian ETF

In an act of under-pricing, iShares is listing an India-tracking ETF that will be the cheapest available on the LSE. The iShares MSCI India UCITS ETF (IIND, NDIA) will charge 65 basis points while tracking the same MSCI India index that its competitor products from Lyxor and Amundi both track.

The cheapest Indian-tracking ETF in London at the moment is a smart beta ETF from WisdomTree, the WisdomTree India Quality UCITS ETF, which charges 73 basis points.

Interestingly, iShares appears to have tried its hand at India ETFs in Europe before, having had an India tracker listed in Switzerland (CSIN) in 2010. The fund appears to have been liquidated, however.
