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.

We assign a ‘performance’ warning label to ETFs and managed funds which we believe will likely produce a return and risk profile that is different to a traditional ETF or fund operating in this sector.

Tax Domicile

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

Registry

Link Market Services is the second-largest share registry in Australia and operates from offices in 11 countries throughout Australasia, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Europe.

Sector Information

When you invest in commodities (like gold, silver or oil), some academic studies show you may be lowering some of the risks in a diversified portfolio. For example, you won’t have all of your eggs in your ‘Australia basket’.
