Best ETFs Australia quick review: HACK and QAU

Don’t you wonder if now is the time to start analysing the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK) and BetaShares Gold Bullion ETF – Currency Hedged ETF (ASX: QAU)? These Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) aim to provide exposure to the International shares and Commodities sectors, respectively.

Is the HACK ETF a good investment? Here’s where you start…

The BetaShares HACK ETF provides investors with exposure to the performance of the world’s largest companies involved in cybersecurity – a sector with strong growth prospects as businesses begin to place an increasing emphasis on cybersecurity and the protection of data.

According to our most recent data, the HACK ETF had $372 million of money invested. With HACK’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.

A quick take of the QAU ETF

The BetaShares QAU ETF provides investors with exposure to the performance of gold bullion, hedged into Australian dollars.

With our numbers for Dec 2020, QAU’s FUM stood at $362.49 million. Since the QAU’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 QAU ETF bad?

BetaShares, the ETF issuer, charges a yearly management fee of 0.59% for the QAU ETF. Meaning, if you invested $2,000 for a full 12-month period you could expect to pay a base management fee of around $11.80.

The management fee is above the average for all ETFs on our list of ASX ETFs, but keep in mind the ETF may be able to justify the higher price tag with superior performance over time.
