SIAML Pension ETF 40
An Exchange Traded Fund (“ETF”) is an investment vehicle that tracks an index (a basket of securities such as stocks, fixed income or commodities etc.) but trades like ordinary shares on a stock exchange.
It is a unique investment tool that combines some features of mutual funds with that of ordinary shares.
SIAML Pension ETF 40 (“ETF 40”)
The ETF 40 aims to replicate as closely as possible, the total return of The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) Pension Index (i.e. an index which tracks the top 40 companies on The NSE in terms of market capitalization, liquidity and Pension Funds Administration investment eligibility).
The ETF 40 provides investors with access to a basket of liquid public-quoted companies on The NSE, whilst also achieving a net return that reflects the performance of the NSE Pension 40 Index.
The Fund was started in 2017.
