What to know about the ETF Securities FANG ETF
The ETFS FANG ETF provides investors with exposure to the performance of the 10 most highly-traded next generation technology and tech-enabled companies listed on US stock markets. FANG adopts an equal weight strategy, meaning that it weights the shares within the portfolio equally – this differs from the more commonly used method of weighting by market capitalisation.
According to our most recent data, the FANG ETF had $131.34 million of money invested. With FANG’s total funds under management (FUM) figure over $100 million, the ETF meets our team’s minimum investment criteria for FUM levels. As a general rule, our team draws the line at $100 million for ETFs in the International shares sector because we believe that, relative to smaller ETFs, achieving this amount of FUM lowers the chance that the ETF issuer will close the ETF.

The Vaneck MVE ETF – key points
The VanEck MVE ETF provides exposure to a diversified portfolio of large Australian companies and is the only ETF tracking the S&P/ASX Midcap 50 Index in Australia. The MVE ETF is designed to capture the performance of the top 50 Australian midcap companies based on market cap, ranking from 51 to 100.
With our numbers for Oct 2020, MVE’s FUM stood at $139.83 million. Since the MVE’s FUM is over $100 million, our investing team would say the ETF has met our minimum criteria for the total amount invested, otherwise known as FUM. A very sustainable ETF in the Index sector should be able to scale well and become profitable for the ETF issuer.
Are the fees for the MVE ETF bad?
Vaneck, the ETF issuer, charges a yearly management fee of 0.45% for the MVE ETF. Meaning, if you invested $2,000 for a full 12-month period you could expect to pay a base management fee of around $9.00.
This management fee is below the average for all ETFs on our Best ETFs Australia list of ETFs. However, you might still be able to find a cheaper ETF for less.
