Can the IAA and QHAL ETFs be part of an ASX ETF portfolio?

On the ASX, the iShares S&P Asia 50 ETF (ASX: IAA) and VanEck Vectors MSCI World Ex-Australia Quality (Hedged) ETF (ASX: QHAL) might be worth digging into in 2022.

What to know about the iShares IAA ETF

The iShares IAA ETF provides exposure to the performance of 50 large, established Asian companies listed on the stock exchanges of China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, and Macau.

According to our most recent data, the IAA ETF had $799.35 million of money invested. With IAA’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.

The VanEck QHAL ETF – key points

The VanEck QHAL ETF gives investors exposure to large companies from developed countries around the world, excluding Australia, hedged into Australian dollars.

With our numbers for December 2021, QHAL’s FUM stood at $431.93 million. Since the QHAL’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.

A look at the QHAL ETF fee load?

VanEck, the ETF issuer, charges a yearly management fee of 0.0043 for the QHAL ETF. Meaning, if you invest $2,000 for a full year from now you can expect to pay a management fee of around $8.60.

This management fee is below the average for all ETFs on our Best ETFs Australia list of ETFs. However, you might still be able to find a cheaper ETF for less.
