The total value of ETFs in the YieldReport survey barely moved as funds which flowed into some funds were matched by outflows from others. This may have represented a switch between ETFs as the BetaShares Australian High Interest Cash ETF was the recipient of the largest flows of funds. In percentage terms the largest recipient was the iShares UBS Composite Bond Index ETF although this is a small ETF and percentage changes are amplified by being calculated off a very low base.

In another sign of the growing acceptance of the investing in ETFs, NAB announced it will be offering its managed funds on the ASX’s mFund platform.
