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.

When an ETF does not have a sufficiently long track record — typically, we consider this to be at least 3 years — the ETF is could be at a higher risk of being closed down (if it doesn’t grow), and the historical performance and returns (if any) cannot be relied upon.

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.
