Most bond ETFs experienced some fund inflow in this latest week but the preference of investors was clear. BetaShares Australian High Interest Cash ETF (ASX code: AAA) picked up the majority of new funds, accounting for 75% of the new funds into the sector. Whether this represents a short-term parking arrangement by investors who are yet to decide on some term strategy or a manifestation of investor risk aversion will only be determined in coming weeks. Having said that, most other bond ETFs had modest inflows equivalent to 0.1% to 0.7% of their total fund values.
