Switzer SWTZ ETF (ASX:SWTZ) ETF: What you need to know

Like us, you might have noticed the Switzer Dividend Growth Fund (Managed Fund) ETF (ASX: SWTZ) and think that now could be a good time to consider taking a closer look. Here’s what ETF investors need to know.

1. What does the SWTZ ETF do for investors?

The Switzer SWTZ Fund is an actively-managed fund, with the aim to provide investors with capital growth and a tax-effective income stream.

2. Funds under management (FUM)

The Switzer SWTZ ETF had $72.19 million of money invested when we last pulled the monthly numbers. With a funds under management (FUM) or ‘market cap’ figure of less than $100 million, it’s important to consider if this ETF is still too small.

We say an ETF with more than $100 million invested is typically more sustainable than one with less than $100 million (at least). This is because if an ETF is too small, it may not be sustainable for an ETF issuer/provider, such as Switzer, to continue to operate it.

That said, there are exceptions to this rule of thumb, especially if the ETF issuer is committed to growing the ETF’s FUM to the point where it becomes profitable.

3. Don’t forget about the fees & costs

Switzer charges investors a yearly management fee of 0.89% for the SWTZ ETF. This means that if you invested $2,000 in SWTZ for a full year, you could expect to pay management fees of around $17.80.

For context, the average management fee (MER) of all ETFs covered by Best ETFs Australia on our complete list of ASX ETFs is 0.51% or around $10.20 per $2,000 invested. Keep in mind, small changes in fees can make a big difference after 10 or 20 years.

Now what?

These are just a few of the considerations or factors you would need to look at when running the rule over the SWTZ ETF. Before you go any further, take a look at our free Switzer SWTZ report. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to search our complete list of ASX ETFs.
