BetaShares MNRS ETF (ASX:MNRS) ETF: What you need to know

Like us, you might have noticed the BetaShares Global Gold Miners ETF – Currency Hedged ETF (ASX: MNRS) 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 MNRS ETF do for investors?

The BetaShares MNRS ETF provides investors with exposure to the performance of shares of the largest gold miners around the world, hedged into Australian dollars. This is a more indirect exposure to gold compared to physically-backed gold ETFs like GOLD and PMGOLD.

2. Funds under management (FUM)

The BetaShares MNRS ETF had $64.55 million of money invested when we last pulled the monthly numbers. With a funds under management (FUM) or ‘market cap’ figure of less than $100 million, it’s important to consider if this ETF is still too small.

We say an ETF with more than $100 million invested is typically more sustainable than one with less than $100 million (at least). This is because if an ETF is too small, it may not be sustainable for an ETF issuer/provider, such as BetaShares, to continue to operate it.

That said, there are exceptions to this rule of thumb, especially if the ETF issuer is committed to growing the ETF’s FUM to the point where it becomes profitable.

3. Don’t forget about the fees & costs

BetaShares charges investors a yearly management fee of 0.57% for the MNRS ETF. This means that if you invested $2,000 in MNRS for a full year, you could expect to pay management fees of around $11.40.

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.

Now what?
