Wisdom Tree Investments of New York is set to become the first asset management firm to launch an exchange-traded fund that invests exclusively in the emerging market country of India, with the planned launch of the Wisdom Tree India Earnings Fund ETF by the end of February.

The ETF will follow its own proprietary earnings-weighted fundamental index of 50 companies spread across several sectors. That means that companies with the greatest earnings metrics will be weighted as larger components, regardless of the sectors they fall into.
