A passive fund is a type of fund that religiously tracks a market index to allow a fund to fetch maximum gains. The fund manager does not actively choose what stocks the fund will be composed of, which is the case in an active fund. This usually makes passive funds easier to invest in than active funds. Also, index funds are a good way for a ‘know-nothing’ investor because you do not need to research and know about the best performing fund. Passive funds do not involve the active participation of a fund manager. Hence their fee is far less as compared to that charged by an actively managed fund. The reason for passive funds to gain popularity among investors in India recently is their low expense ratio. The involvement of a fund manager in an index fund is comparatively less. That’s because index funds mimic the indices.

Benefits of passive funds:
Ultra-low fees: There’s nobody picking stocks, so oversight is much less expensive. Passive funds follow the index they use as their benchmark.
Transparency: It’s always clear which assets are in an index fund.
Tax efficiency: Their buy-and-hold strategy doesn’t typically result in a massive capital gains tax for the year.
Simplicity: Owning an index, or group of indices is far easier to implement and comprehend than a dynamic strategy that requires constant research and adjustment.
