Like us, you might have noticed the VanEck Vectors Australian Property ETF (ASX: MVA) 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 MVA ETF do for investors?
The VanEck MVA ETF provides investors with exposure to the Australian property market by investing in a portfolio of ASX-listed property companies and real estate investment trusts (REITs).
2. Funds under management (FUM)
The VanEck MVA ETF had $443.29 million of money invested when we last pulled the monthly numbers. Given MVA’s total funds under management (FUM) figure is over $100 million, the ETF has met our minimum criteria for the total amount of money invested, otherwise known as FUM. We draw the line at $100 million for ETFs in the Australian shares sector because we believe that relative to smaller ETFs, achieving this amount of FUM de-risks the ETF.
3. Don’t forget about the fees & costs
VanEck charges investors a yearly management fee of 0.35% for the MVA ETF. This means that if you invested $2,000 in MVA for a full year, you could expect to pay management fees of around $7.00.
For context, the average management fee (MER) of all ETFs covered by Best ETFs Australia on our complete list of ASX ETFs is 0.5% or around $10.00 per $2,000 invested. Keep in mind, small changes in fees can make a big difference after 10 or 20 years.
These are just a few of the considerations or factors you would need to look at when running the rule over the MVA ETF. Before you go any further, take a look at our free VanEck MVA report. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to search our complete list of ASX ETFs.
