The investment objective of SSIAM VNFIN LEAD ETF is to replicate as closely as possible performance of VIETNAM LEADING FINANCIAL INDEX (VNFIN LEAD). The VNFIN LEAD is calculated based on the price index method, representing the price movement of stocks of listed companies under VNFIN index having the eligibility to participate in creation basket and satisfying index criteria.
The Fund adopts a passive investment strategy with the goal of replicating VNFIN LEAD- performance in all periods. The Fund does neither actively seek higher return than the Tracking Index nor use defensive measures when the stock market declines.
With passive investment strategy, the Fund can maintain a lower turnover ratio than other funds with active investment strategies, thereby reducing operational costs of the Fund.
FULL REPLICATION APPROACH
With this approach, the Fund will invest in all or nearly all the stocks in the VNFIN LEAD basket, in proportion to weight of the stocks in the VNFIN LEAD index. When the basket of securities of VNFIN LEAD index changes, SSIAM VNFIN LEAD ETF shall adjust the Fund’s portfolio and weight corresponding to the changes in VNFIN LEAD index
