Investor interest in bond ETFs was reignited after a recent pause in the flow of funds to this sector. All funds, except one, were the beneficiaries and the most popular one when measured in percentage growth was the SPDR S&P/ASX Australian Bond Fund, although it must be said this is a small fund and small flows have large percentage impacts. In absolute terms, the Vanguard Australian Fixed Interest Index ETF took first prize.
