Investors Pour Money Into ASX ETF Index Funds

Investors continued to favour passive ETFs that tracked broad sharemarket indexes for the week as investors looked to diversify portfolios with low-cost investment strategies. However, they weren’t the top gainers.

While passively managed Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) recorded the largest inflows, a surprising category recorded the biggest price gains.

Betashares Australia 200 ETF (ASX: A200)

The ETF took in $170.6 million of new money.

A200 tracks the performance of an index comprising 200 of the largest companies by market capitalisation listed on the ASX. The management fee is 0.04% and net assets were $4,480.2 million.

The one-year rolling return is 7.12% pa.

iShares S&P/ASX 200 ETF (ASX: IOZ)

IOZ received $41.4 million of inflows.

It also tracks the 200 largest companies on the ASX. The management fee is 0.05% and net assets are $5,156.2 million.

The one-year return is 6.97%.

VanEck MSCI World Ex-Australia Quality ETF (ASX: QUAL)

QUAL took in $29.7 million of funds.

QUAL tracks a portfolio of quality international companies listed on exchanges in developed markets around the world outside Australia.

The management fee is 0.04% and net assets are $5,200 million.

The one-year return is 35.2%, reflecting the market capitalisation weighting of large US companies in the index.

The inflows may reflect a flight to safety, a diversification strategy, or a low-cost investment by investors.

Crypto ETFs

The inflows did not correspond with the top gainers for the week. Crypto ETFs dominated these.
