How has the ETF performed?

It was launched during the COVID-19 crash, but it has rebounded strongly since then, its up 93% from 23 March 2020. Since inception it has returned 40.1%. Over the past three months the ETF has returned 23.7%.

1 key reason to buy it

Many of the businesses that ATEC is invested in are great ASX growth shares with higher profit margins. There’s a reason why the ETF has performed so well – because many of its holdings are performing well in this new COVID-19 world. Returns won’t always be this strong, but it could keep outperforming.

However, the biggest five positions make up almost half of the portfolio, Afterpay is 18% of the whole ETF. That’s not great diversification, though if it delivers the returns does it really matter?

But there are plenty of other ETFs out there for growth and/or dividends. Check out our list of ASX ETFs.
