What does the ISO invest in?

The ISO ETF aims to track the performance of the S&P/ASX Small Ordinaries Accumulation Index, which is made up of companies included in the ASX 300 index but not the ASX 100 index. ISO moves away from shares of the largest companies on the ASX and instead holds companies numbered 101 to 300 by market capitalisation (a measure of company size). You could buy all of these companies yourself using a share brokerage account, but that would be a very expensive and time-consuming process.

What do investors use ISO for?

The iShares ISO ETF could be used by investors to get exposure to a broad basket of smaller Australian listed companies, which are likely to grow their profits over time. Navigating away from the largest ASX companies removes a lot of the exposure to the financial sector and could diversify your Australian portfolio allocation.

Best ETFs warnings

The following warnings are applied by our team, based on quantitative metrics and our internal methodology. These risks are not exhaustive and therefore they should not be relied upon. Always read the PDS of the function and speak to your financial adviser before acting on this information.

Sometimes ETFs and other types of funds will invest in assets or asset classes that are difficult to transact in. When something is difficult — or impossible — to buy and sell quickly (e.g. in one or two days) and at a fair price, we say that it is an “illiquid” investment.

Tax Domicile

When a fund/ETF has a “domicile” of Australia it means it is a registered fund in Australia for tax purposes.

Registry

Computershare is not only the largest share registry in Australia but also the world. The company was founded in 1978 as one of Melbourne’s first start-up technology companies, initially providing computer services to businesses.

Sector Information

The Best ETFs Australian shares sector includes ETFs, managed funds and index funds which cover the ASX and national stock exchange (NSX).
