So, what is this Nifty Junior Index Fund is all about?

The next list of liquid securities after CNX Nifty is the CNX Nifty Junior and it consists of 100 stocks selected based on liquidity. Also we don't have that many schemes tracking Nifty Junior apart from ICICI Prudential Nifty Junior Index Fund, which was launched just a few months ago.

We have Nifty Bees and many other ETFs and these kind of ETFs are yet to catch up the Indian investors in a big way. Hence, this scheme is for investors who want to invest in the next big index fund and with that an opportunity for them to buy the next heavyweight stocks of tomorrow.
