The Bandhan Nifty Total Market Index Fund offers comprehensive market participation across all sectors and market caps, making it a valuable addition for investors looking to benefit from India’s economic success.”

The Total Market Index covers all segments mitigating the risk of losing out on the opportunity in any one segment of the market, while offering potentially stable returns.
