Most of these funds are funds of funds (FOF) except Parag Parikh Long Term Equity Fund meaning, they invest in other mutual funds which invest in the securities of that particular market. You can check the scheme information document (SID) to know more about the holdings of the fund.

It’s important to note that taxation in these international is similar to debt mutual funds unlike domestic mutual funds. More here.

Since the taxation is high in short term & even in long term for International funds. Would Parag Parikh Long Term Equity Fund could be a good pick. Since the taxation part is like Equity Funds not like debt funds. They mention that below 35% of portfolio is invested Globally & rest in Indian stocks so that qualify for Equity Funds taxation.

The expense ratio is too high for all these, any suggestions for MSCI acwi index

We now have Motilal Oswal S&P 500 fund with less than 0.5% ER

I don’t want S&P index,but MSCI all country world index.
