BetaShares Global Uranium ETF (ASX:URNM)

The URNM ETF follows an index and owns a basket of global shares involved in the mining, exploration, development, and production of uranium, and that hold physical uranium, uranium royalties or other non-mining assets. URNM has a complicated portfolio weighting criteria, which we think makes it hard for investors to predict how URNM will perform over time.

What does the URNM ASX ETF invest in?

URNM invests in the full spectrum of companies involved in uranium, from exploration thru to production, from $US40 million in market capitalisation (i.e. extremely small companies) right up to global large caps. While there can be quite a few companies included in the portfolio, a large portion of the portfolio is skewed to just a few companies. Inside URNM no more than 5 companies can be 4.7% of the portfolio — but as of 2022 those 5 companies make a large portion of the overall ETF (~55% of the ETF).

What do investors use the URNM ETF for?

URNM could be used by investors with a high risk tolerance and, we think, as a very small allocation to an alternative energy source. Be mindful that around the time of its launch, URNM is ‘top heavy’ and concentrated to just a few companies (42% was invested in just three companies). As a result we think investors can expect lots of volatility/risk.
