The total value of bond ETFs increased substantially, and ETFs recorded inflows equal to over 3% of the value of bond fund ETFs.

Most bond ETFs received net investor inflows over the week, with two exceptions. The biggest outflow was out of the Russell Australian Government Bond ETF, while the Russell Australian Semi-Government Bond ETF received almost an equal amount, suggesting a switch was going on. Vanguard’s Australian fixed interest Index ETF grew in value by 11%, making it the largest beneficiary of investor interest (in absolute terms) in this part of the market.
