During November funds in the YieldReport survey reported good inflows equal to 2.72% of the total fund value at the start of the month. The big beneficiary of the flow was the Betashares Australian High Interest Cash ETF which took in just over half of the total flow for the ETFs in the survey. It aims to provide regular income distributions and a high level of capital security while generating a return that exceeds the 30 day Bank Bill Swap Rate (after fees and expenses). It invests all of its funds into bank deposit accounts maintained with one or more selected banks in Australia.
The Vanguard Australian Fixed Interest Index ETF received a bit over a quarter and the iShares UBS Composite Bond Index Fund received a little under a quarter with the rest of the funds in the survey showing modest inflows or outflows.
