Articles - Local ETFtracker Blog - ASX Market Update - August 2021 - In this article we highlight the latest numbers we've crunched from the ASX. At a high level, nearly $123 billion in FUM is in the market now, driven by $3.5 billion of net inflows and performance was mostly positive with an average of +2.2% across the board. We explore this with a new and improved ETFtracker app and some new ETF snapshots (looking at ATEC and VGS in this case). Below you can see an animation of the new landing page, high-level snapshots, menus and ETF snapshots too.
