The majority of funds in YieldReport’s survey reversed the previous week’s outflows as funds flowed to index ETFs. Vanguards Australian Fixed Interest Index ETF was the main beneficiary, receiving three quarters of the positive flows in dollar terms, while the iShares UBS Government Inflation Index ETF received the same amount in percentage terms but off a smaller base. Some of the flows to these two ETF’s were funds by a 14% drop in the Russell Australian Select Corporate Bond Fund as investors moved to reduce risk levels.
