Aussie ETF industry sees record monthly FUM increase


The Australian ETF industry has broken another new record with a monthly FUM increase of AUD2.3 billion, eclipsing the previous record set in November 2017, according to the BetaShares Australian ETF Review February 2019.

Picking up pace in the second month of the year, the industry ended February at a record high of AUD44.8 billion in FUM. Similar to January, market rebounds meant that the substantial industry growth primarily came from price increases, accounting for 80 per cent of the total, with the other 20 per cent due to net inflows amounting to AUD524 million.
Investor appetite for global exposures continued to grow with International Equities receiving the largest amount of net inflows – approximately AUD211m. Australian Bonds and Cash followed with inflows of AUD151 million and AUD40 million respectively.
From a performance perspective, Chinese Equities performed most strongly in February due to the substantial price recovery experienced in this market. Net outflows at a category level were limited but relegated to small amounts of profit taking in gold exposures.
There are currently 242 exchange traded products trading on the ASX. Four products matured during the month, and no new products were launched.
