SBI Funds Management (SBIFM) today said it has become the country’s first asset manager to cross Rs 20,000 crore of AUM in exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The company began the ETF journey with the launch of SBI-ETF Gold (earlier known as SBI GETS) in 2009. Since then, it has developed a diversified stable of ETF offerings across asset classes. Currently, SBIFM has five equity ETFs, one fixed income and one commodity (gold) ETF. SBIFM was also the only ETF manager chosen for EPFO’s maiden allocation in equities. Other than EPFO, SBIFM has investments from over 800 exempt PFs across its product range.
SBIFM has been actively working with service providers on various aspects to make the existing products more efficient and also work on new product innovation, a company statement said here.
