29 Aug – 2 Sep 2016


For a second week in a row, bond ETF values barely moved, as investors sat on the sidelines or on their existing positions. Some money flowed out of the BetaShares Australian High Interest Cash ETF but the amount was equivalent to only 0.1% of the fund so it could be explained by standard week-to-week variations such as a transfer from one type of bond ETF to another or perhaps an investor’s need for liquidity.
