What’s up with the ETF Securities ACDC ETF (ASX:ACDC)?

If you’re looking for an ASX ETF in the International shares sector, chances are, the ETF Securities Battery Tech & Lithium ETF (ASX: ACDC) is an ETF you’re considering. Here’s what you need to know.

How ASX investors can use the ACDC ETF

The ETFS ACDC ETF provides investors with passive exposure to the performance of companies involved in battery technology and lithium mining. ACDC adopts an equal weight strategy, meaning that it weights the shares within the portfolio equally – this is different from traditional index fund ETFs which invest more in the largest companies (as determined by market capitalisation).
The ACDC ETF could be used by investors to gain a tactical exposure to the battery technology thematic. ACDC is a global ETF, investing across Asia, the US, Europe and to a minor extent, Australia.

ACDC meets our minimum market cap (FUM) criteria

The ETF Securities ACDC ETF had $504.63 million of money invested when we last pulled the monthly numbers. Given ACDC’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.

ACDC ETF fees explained

ETF Securities charges investors a yearly management fee of 0.69% for the ACDC ETF. This means that if you invested $2,000 in ACDC for a full year, you could expect to pay management fees of around $13.80.
