We first took a look at the ETFs which had the highest inflows for the financial year this time last year. With the end of financial year long behind us, it’s time to take another look and see if there were any changes from last year. One of the unique attributes of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and one which they share with managed funds, is their ability to create new units. This means that theoretically there is no limit to the size that an ETF can get to. Below we have a look at whic ... [More]

Australia's exchange traded funds market is expanding as issuers launch ETFs that provide exposure to different assets, sectors or strategies. The following is a selection of newer-style exchange-traded products (ETPs), but remember you'll also need to assess factors such tracking differences, cost and liquidity to help you make the best choice.

Australia’s exchange-traded funds market is surging towards the 2016 finish line at a blistering pace, with net capital inflows in October topping $600 million. At this point, total inflows in the current quarter are on track to easily surpass the $1.02 billion of investor funds that flowed into the 150 or so ETFs listed on the Australian Securities Exchange during the three months to the end of September. So, if all goes according to plan — for the ETF product issuers, that is — the total inflow of funds into Australian-listed ETFs for 2016 should be in the vicinity of $5bn, and potentially more.

One of the unique attributes of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and one which they share with managed funds, is their ability to create new units. This means that theoretically there is no limit to the size that an ETF can get to. We thought it would be interesting to have a look at which ETFs had the highest net inflows last financial year to see where investors have been placing their money. The table below shows the top 20 ETFs by net inflows for the 2016 Financial Year. Note that this is sep ... [More]

After a reasonably slow start to the year, there’s been a flurry new ETFs listed over the last couple of months covering a broad range of focus areas. This includes everything from large cap focused global funds, to niche industries, and a couple of actively managed ETFs, a trend that shows no signs of abating. Today we’re going to take a brief look at the eight new listings over the last two months. Betashares Global Energy Companies ETF – Currency Hedged (FUEL) Launched ... [More]

With AMP and Betashares recently launching the first of their joint venture actively managed ETFs, it’s timely to have a look at Exchange Traded Managed Funds (ETMFs), what they are, how they work and who offers them. Firstly, what is an ETF? We won’t go into detail about all the characteristics of an ETF (you can find that out here), but one of the key characteristics of an ETF is it must be rules based in its underlying portfolio construction, following a pre-defined benchmar ...

Australia's exchange-traded fund market is booming and investors are reaping the rewards with lower fees and greater investment choice. The local ETF market more than doubled in size to $21.09 billion in the two years ended 2015, with the strongest inflows split equally between Australian equities and international equities ($1.7 billion each). "It's gone from being an obscure investment that most people had never heard about to being something that a significant part of the SMSF and self-directed market, as well as the adviser market, is now adopting," BetaShares managing director Alex Vynokur says. While investment markets have remained volatile in 2016, the ETF industry continued to post net inflows in January and February as interest turned towards "risk-off" gold and cash ETFs, Vynokur says.   Market Vectors ETFs' managing director Arian Neiron​ says the ability for intra-day trading, combined with low fees in a transparent structure, is resonating with investors.

Despite the wild ride of share markets over recent months, and some very poor investment returns, the size of the Australian exchange-traded fund (ETF) market has jumped as investors pour money into this asset class despite, or perhaps because of, volatile markets. As at the end of December 2015, there were 138 exchange-traded products (ETPs) listed on the Australian Securities Exchange, up from 104 a year earlier. The market had a capitalisation of $21.3 billion, up a very healthy 42 per cent from December 2014. Most of those listed securities were made up of Australian equity ETPs or ETFs, accounting for around 57 per cent of the value traded by asset class in December 2015, followed by international equity ETPs, making up around 32 per cent.

Advisers will soon be able to provide clients with access to a new range of listed active funds, with many fund managers set to follow the success of Magellan Asset Management’s “exchange-quoted managed fund”, MGE. A year ago Magellan launched a new exchange-traded fund (ETF)-style product, dubbed an EQMF (exchange-quoted managed fund), which gives access via the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) to the actively managed Magellan Global Fund. Other asset managers are believed to be looking to cash in on the strong response to Magellan’s pioneering launch, after the product raised close to $400 million in its first year. [More]
