In a reverse of what occurred in the previous week, bond ETFs tended to experience some fund outflow, especially those purely invested in ACGBs and/or semi-government bonds. It should be noted the flows were not particularly large so the flows are better described as trickles rather than streams. One of the ETFs which very modestly increased its overall fund value is the BetaShares Australian High Interest Cash ETF (ASX code: AAA), which was the recipient of the majority of new funds in the previous week.

In other ETF news, corporate bond ETF provide ACBC announced it would be adding six new funds to its existing suite of 17.
