Don’t you wonder if now is the time to start analysing the ETF Securities FANG+ ETF (ASX: FANG) and Vaneck Australian Resources ETF (ASX: MVR)? These Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) aim to provide exposure to the International shares and Australian shares sectors, respectively.
Is the FANG ETF a good investment? Here’s where you start…
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 $176.28 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.

A quick take of the MVR ETF
The VanEck MVR ETF provides focused exposure to the Australian resources sector, which is a significant part of the Australian economy. This is a low-cost way to invest in the Australian resources industry through a single fund.
With our numbers for December 2020, MVR’s FUM stood at $117.97 million. Since the MVR’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 MVR ETF bad?
Vaneck, the ETF issuer, charges a yearly management fee of 0.35% for the MVR ETF. Meaning, if you invested $2,000 for a full 12-month period you could expect to pay a base management fee of around $7.00.
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.
