10 most traded ETFs
2019 was a big year for the exchange-traded funds (ETF) market as it cracked $61 billion in assets and accelerated its lead over the listed investment companies and trusts sector in funds under management. Once thought of as a fad, it’s now clear that ETFs have come of age. Their rise has coincided with diminishing investor appetite in active investing, scrutiny over fees charged by stock pickers and unitholder fatigue over LICs and LITs whipsawing unpredictably between premiums and discounts. Pardon the pun, but it seems investors just want beta returns. As the ETF market booms, we thought it was worth looking at which products investors have been trading. Bell Direct has kindly provided their top 10 most transacted ETFs over 2019 to Livewire, and we got the broker’s Jessica Amir and Morningstar’s Tim Murphy to crunch the key takeouts from the data and provide some forward-looking commentary.
