The Motilal Oswal MOSt Shares M50 ETF claims to be the first ever ETF fund in the Indian Markets, which is "Fundamentally Weighted". Although this ETF or Exchange Traded Fund will track and attempt to mimic the S&P nifty 50 Index, it claims to put different weightage on stocks selection in the Nifty 50 index, based upon the fundamental data details. Say for e.g., earnings, valuations, return on equity, etc. might be a few parameters based upon which the Motilal Oswal MOSt Shares M50 ETF will have weightage in the stocks.
What this new ETF claims is that the Nifty 50 index is based on the free float market cap method. (Here are the details about Free Float Market Capitalization Weighted Methodology).
