About MOSt Shares M50
MOSt Shares M50 is an open ended Exchange Traded Fund (ETF), which seeks investment return that corresponds (before fees and expenses) generally to the performance of the MOSt 50 Basket (Underlying Basket), subject to tracking error. MOSt 50 Basket is a fundamentally weighted basket based on S&P CNX Nifty Index. The constituents of MOSt 50 Basket will be the same as the constituents of Nifty. The MOSt 50 Basket passively allocates weights to its constituents at the time of rebalancing based on the pre-defined methodology of the basket. Weights assigned to constituents are dependent on their fundamental performance and their prices with higher weights being assigned to constituents which have demonstrated superior financial performance and have reasonable valuation.

MOSt 50 Basket has been designed by Motilal Oswal Asset Management Company Ltd. (MOAMC) which owns the intellectual property of the methodology of the Basket. MOSt Shares M50 would invest in securities constituting the MOSt 50 Basket in same proportion as in the Basket.
