There was another sizeable increase in the total value of bond ETFs surveyed by YieldReport. Total fund value increased by just over 2.5% (on top of the previous week’s 4%) with the majority of the increase going into the BetaShares Australian High Interest Cash ETF. All the other funds in the YieldReport survey experienced very modest flows in or out except for the iShares UBS Composite Bond Index Fund. In a small reversal of the previous week’s flow, this fund, which is about 90% Commonwealth Government securities, experienced a 2.4% outflow which is, in the context of the previous week’s 22.7% inflow, quite negligible.
