(A Top Pick July 13/15. Down 0.63%.) Bought this when India have been down 30%-40% and people were very, very negative about it. This was a closed end fund run by Aberdeen Management in Scotland, a very reputable organization. They consistently beat their benchmarks. Thinks India is going to be the fastest growing economy globally. He is a little concerned recently about the slowness and the pace that the Mohdi government has been introducing, and because he needed funds, he exited his position.

For a while India was struggling, but following the election, the stocks took off. They recently announced the lowering of the rates from 8% to 7.75%. The new prime minister really seems to be pro-business, pro-infrastructure and anticorruption. Growth forecasts are approaching China’s levels. There are also the demographics with their young middle class and growing 15% per year over the next 2 years. Trading at a bit of a discount to NAV.

India has been punished in the last couple of months so stocks have been discounted for the time being. This fund gives a diversified portfolio. Owns all of the big Indian stocks and gives you participation in that market.

This is a bunch of outsourcing call centres and is a fairly broad diversified holding of companies in India. China, Brazil, India and to a lesser degree Russia are all where the puck is going.

Mutual fund and a good way for investing in Asia. This one has all the Indian stocks. Trading right at its NAV so you are not paying a premium. Alternatively you could use an ETF. He thinks that for the next 5 to 10 years there will be good growth in the Asian markets.

This is a closed end fund, not an ETF. Good thing about a closed end fund is that it trades at a good discount but very illiquid so it may never trade at a premium or get close to its NAV. For an ETF of India, he would suggest Wisdom Tree India Earnings (EPI-N), which focuses on dividends. There is also PowerShares India ETF (PIN-N).

Like many country funds it is a basket of stocks that foreign investors can’t buy because of restrictions. Usually trades at a discount. Indian economy has seen a lot of inflation and they have closed the doors to capital investment coming in. This is the reason for the drop. Not a bad entry level but there could be some more nastiness to come. Start with a half position.

Question was should he stay in for the next 3 years. Answer: Yes Democratic country in India, which has a government deficit (which is a concern). It has sold off and so there are more opportunities. Infrastructure in India will grow because they are so far behind.

Hasn't really followed this fund, but can say that India has been a very strong market. Many smart people are feeling that ultimately India will be able to offer you better returns than China. India would be a good place to be.
