Spots Evaluation

Spots are a measure we have developed to compare ETFs across 5 common characteristics: Fees, Slippage, Liquidity, Size and Counterparty risk. Spots are a quantitative measure and do not constitute a recommendation. Please refer to our Advice disclaimer.

ETFs can qualify for up to 5 spots based on the following criteria:

Measure Criteria
Fees: total fund management fees and expenses as a percentage of average net assets, and is equivalent in calculation to the indirect cost ratio (‘ICR’) and the management expense ratio (‘MER’) < 0.25% per annum
Slippage: average percentage bid/ask spread during ASX trading hours

< 0.25%

Liquidity: average daily volume on the ASX over the past calendar quarter. Volume is a measure of market making activity and the trading environment. It may not reflect liquidity in the underlying securities. > AU$500,000
Size: Funds Under Management (FUM) > AU$25m
Counterparty risk: Synthetic ETFs and Structured Products use derivatives to achieve their investment objective. If you invest in these you are subject to the risk that the counterparty to the derivative may fail to meet some or all of their obligations. Some ETFs can also 'lend out' the underlying securities to earn a fee. Securities lending can boost investor returns but also increases counterparty risk. We prefer ETFs that are exposed to very low or zero counterparty risk.  Investors are exposed to counterparty risk of less than 10% of the fund's net asset value.
