In an exclusive interview during Nest Egg’s Monthly ETF Market update, Kanish Chugh from ETF Securities shares some insight on how investors can gain access to recent advances in battery technologies that have seen the development of the ability to store energy in increasingly smaller and lighter forms.

  • Over the month of August the Australian ETF Market grew by 3.72% and reached a high of $41.150 bn across 178 products as at 30th August 2018
  • There were net flows into ETFs of $532m
  • Vanguard is still the largest ETF Provider in Australia with $11.996 bn in AUM with net inflows of $229.97 m.
  • SPDR, UBS and Switzer were the only two ETF Providers to see net outflows in the month of August with -$241.34m, -$1.17m and -$0.9m respectively.
  • By product:
    • The BetaShares Australia 200 ETF saw the biggest inflows with $108.93m
    • The SPDR S&P/ASX 200 ETF saw the biggest outflows with -$244.73m
  • Looking at performance we saw thematic ETFs dominate the best performing products with the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF achieving a 12.12% monthly return.
  • The worst performers were dominated by gold mining equity ETFs with the BetaShares Global Gold Miners ETF - Currency Hedged returning -12.05% and the VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF returning -9.52% for the month of August.
  • In what may win the ETF code of the year we also saw the launch on Monday 3rd September 2018 of ACDC by ETF Securities. ACDC is a thematic ETF focused on the megatrend of battery technology and lithium mining. It provides exposure to a global equal weight portfolio and ACDC compliments ETF Securities Future/Present range which already includes the global technology sector fund – TECH and the robotics, automation and AI thematic fund – ROBO.
