Our front page story this week has Vanguard offering two new global bond ETFs to Australian investors. This is the first time bond investors will be able to trade global bond ETFs on the ASX.
In trading news, after a recent surge of inflows into bond ETFs, the pace dropped back to the trickle which had characterised the previous few weeks. The size of the ETFs in the YieldReport survey increased by a shade over 0.05% over the last week, which is essentially zero.
