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 place a ‘high risk’ warning on any ETF/fund that we consider to be, as it says, higher risk. This is a label only, it is not a prediction by us about the expected performance of the ETF/fund.

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 global or international shares sector includes ETFs, managed funds and index funds which cover international equities/share markets.
