SET lists KTAM SET50 ETF Tracker


The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) has listed the KTAM SET50 ETF Tracker, managed by Krung Thai Asset Management (KTAM), on its main board under the ticker ESET50.

The fund offers the lowest management fee among ETFs tracking SET50 in order to give more returns to investors.
ESET50, an open-end exchange-traded fund, will invest in constituent stocks of the SET50 index, consisting of large-cap companies having high liquidity and market capitalisation of a combined THB9trn (USD277bn), or 74 percent of the total market cap.
The SET50 index’s average return was six per cent per annum over the last ten years. Since the beginning of this year until mid-March, the SET50 index has increased about five per cent with dividend yield of about 3.30 per cent.
SET executive vice president Kesara Manchusree says: “KTAM is Thailand’s biggest ETF fund management firm. The company has recently received SET Excellence Awards 2014 for best ETF fund management. ESET50 will be an alternative investment, particularly for beginners as they could get returns following the movement of SET50. Currently, SET has several ETFs generating returns following the movement of indices and meeting various investors.”
The fund’s management fee is 0.30 per cent per year, the lowest fee comparing with the five ETFs tracking SET50 listed on Hong Kong, Japan, Thailand, UK and Singapore charging 0.45 per cent on average.
