Welcome to the pilot episode of Core, Satellite, Avoid! In this new episode format of The Australian Investors Podcast, I — Owen Rask — am joined by Rask’s very own Melissa Vincent to run the microscope over 5 popular Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs).

As part of our review of the ETFs, I give you my assessment of whether these funds/ETFs could form part of a balanced Core portfolio, a Satellite allocation or should (frankly!) be avoided. Of course, I lean into the Rask Philosophy.

On this week’s Core, Satellite, Avoid, Owen and Mel cover these 5 ETFs:

  1. Global X Battery & Lithium ETF (ASX: ACDC)
  2. VanEck Global Clean Energy ETF (ASX: CLNE)
  3. BetaShares Global Sustainability Leaders ETF (ASX: ETHI)
  4. iShares Future Tech Innovators ETF (ASX: ITEK)
  5. Vanguard Ethically Conscious International Shares Index ETF (ASX: VESG)

All five of these ETFs have a ‘future focus’ — some play into themes about sustainability, and others focus on technology and how to capitalise on technology trends which could solve important problems for all of us.
