Some things you should know about the BILL ETF
The iShares BILL ETF provides investors with exposure to short-term Australian dollar-denominated bank bills with term to maturities of up to three months.
According to our most recent data, the BILL ETF had $557.59 million of money invested. With BILL’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 Cash – Australian 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 IJP ETF – a quick look for savvy investors
The iShares IJP ETF provides investors with exposure to around 85% of the Japanese stock market. This is a low-cost way to access a specific market through a single fund.
With our numbers for Oct 2020, IJP’s FUM stood at $280.25 million. Since the IJP’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 IJP ETF bad?
iShares, the ETF issuer, charges a yearly management fee of 0.47% for the IJP ETF. Meaning, if you invested $2,000 for a full 12-month period you could expect to pay a base management fee of around $9.40.
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.
