Capital Gains Tax and India ETFs

Emerging market funds have recently experienced their highest monthly inflows in nearly two years, but some markets, such as India, have structural issues that can eat into equity returns. According to Dina Ting, head of global index portfolio management at Franklin Templeton, international investors who own local Indian stocks face capital gains taxation at a rate of 15% for positions held for less than one year and 10% for longer-term holdings.

ETF Newz Says:

“This should be viewed as a necessary cost and risk of investing in India,” Ting added.
