Index funds are mutual funds linked to the index like Nifty or Sensex and are open ended. Index ETFs are, on the other hand, closed ended and they can be bought and sold on the stock exchange subject to availability of volumes and liquidity in the markets. International funds are offered by Indian funds in association with their foreign partners and you can indirectly participate in global markets. Here is a list of funds available under various heads.
