After a lull in recent weeks, investors placed funds with bond ETFs at quite a pronounced rate. Over the week, fund values increased by 2.9%. Readers can see from the chart below it was one of the larger weeks in recent months.


Nearly half of the increase went into BetaShares’ High Interest Cash ETF, with the Vanguard Australian Fixed Interest Index ETF and the UBS Composite Bond Indexed Fund gaining most of the balance.
