DSP Mutual Fund has filed the draft scheme information document (SID) with the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) for DSP Silver ETF-- an open-ended exchange traded fund replicating/tracking domestic prices of the precious metal. 

The scheme will invest in physical silver and silver-related instruments permitted by the regulator from time to time.

The scheme will use a passive approach and seeks to generate returns that are in line with the performance of physical silver in domestic prices, subject to tracking error.
