The Australian ETF industry seems to be growing faster by the day, and one of the ETFs you might have your eye is the SPDR Dow Jones Global Select Real Estate Fund ETF (ASX: DJRE). In this article, we’ll provide a quick review of the DJRE ETF.
The DJRE ETF by SPDR invests in global shares/securities of listed real estate investment trusts (REITs). Investors can use these property-focused ETFs to get global exposure to a broad basket of trusts and companies exposed to property, including office spaces, commercial rental spaces and construction projects.
2. Funds under management (FUM)
The SPDR DJRE ETF had $339.85 million of money invested when we last pulled the monthly numbers. Given DJRE’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 International shares sector because we believe that relative to smaller ETFs, achieving this amount of FUM de-risks the ETF.
3. Management fees & costs matter
SPDR charges investors a yearly management fee of 0.50% for the DJRE ETF. This means that if you invested $2,000 in DJRE for a full year, you could expect to pay management fees of around $10.00.
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 some of the considerations or factors you would need to consider when weighing up the DJRE ETF.
