Goldman Sachs CPSE ETFs By Vidya Bala,

What It Is..
An Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) that has a basket of 10 public sector stocks that will track the CPSE Index.
This index, which will be used to facilitate the Government of India’s initiative to disinvest some of its stake in large public sector companies, currently has a basket of large stocks that are low on valuations as the sectors in which they operate – power, oil and gas, and capital goods are out of favour.
