BetaShares has been awarded an “A” rating for six of its exchange traded funds reviewed by van Eyk in 2012. “A” ratings were received for all the ETFs rated by Van Eyk, including currency, commodity and equity sector asset classes.
The funds were awarded this rating based on the investment process, the management team, infrastructure of the business and its portfolio management systems. The reviews also found the portfolio manager to be highly aware of the underlying index methodology and the portfolio construction for each of the ETFs.
The strong van Eyk ratings follow on from the US Dollar ETF being awarded Money magazine’s Best of the Best 2012 award – the best innovative product of the year.
