    Does anyone know of any good Australian ETF's I can look into buying that are not heavy on the financial sector?

    I own some VAS which is over 20% financials and I'd like to buy an ETF and don't want to load up on more financials.

    I looked at iShares but they don't seem to have anything that I can see suitable..

    Why is IXI (consumer staples) not suitable. I would think it is very suitable for somebody with your disposition and risk tolerance. There are people linining up to get into supermarkets and emptying the shelves. It is up 10% this week.

    .

    Its two biggest holdings are GMG & SCG no?

    Goodman is down.

    Scentre is down almost 10% - Scentre holds Westfields, with the whole retail sector being completely ****ed for the near future.

    Yep, picked up a small parcel with the view of topping up later if further falls continue.

    Man this Virus **** is the real deal. It's literally scary. Health before money anyhow!
