Exchanged Traded Funds (ETFs)

ETFs are managed funds that are traded on an exchange, similar to individual shares. Each ETF typically invests in a basket of shares that track an index, such as the S&P/ASX200.

There are over 200 ETFs available on the Australian share market, some giving you access to specific sectors, emerging investment themes and international markets.

Unlisted managed funds

mFund is the settlement service provided by ASX to enable investors to buy and sell units in unlisted managed funds directly with fund managers.  

The service uses CHESS settlement system to automate and track the process of buying (applying for) and selling (redeeming) units in managed funds. Investors’ holdings in these funds are held electronically and can be linked to the same HIN used to hold other investments transacted through ASX, such as shares.

To find out more, download the ASX mFund Brochure and the ASX mFund fact sheet.
