Exchange Traded Funds or 'ETFs' are managed funds that are traded on the ASX just like shares. International equity ETFs allow Australian investors to easily access overseas markets via the ASX. They also come with the benefits of being cost effective, liquid and transparent.
ETFs have revolutionised international investing for Australians especially Self Managed Super Funds (SMSFs).
The ASX is dominated by the financials and large resource companies. In a world being transformed by social media, silicon chips and biosciences, there is no ASX equivalent of Google, Intel, Mastercard or Johnson & Johnson. The advantage of investing in international equity ETFs is the access to markets exposed to sectors and regions fuelling global growth.

Arian Neiron and Russel Chesler from VanEck Australia introduce strategic beta and why it is becoming so popular
Strategic beta is an index strategy that involves a methodology that differs from traditional market capitalisation weighted benchmark indices, or beta. Strategic beta indices therefore perform differently to beta. They could be thought of as the intersection of active and passive management, combining the best of both worlds: the potential for outperformance, transparent, rules based and low cost.
Institutional investors have been using strategic beta for years. It is now becoming more widely used and accepted by all types of investors. Strategic beta strategies are typically attractive compared to active management due to:
