Singapore’s Temasek Holdings announced on Monday its plan to invest up to A$300 million ($198.4 million) in Betashares, an Australian exchange-traded fund (ETF) manager. This strategic funding aims to bolster Betashares’ expansion efforts both domestically and internationally, as outlined in a statement by the company.

With Temasek’s investment, the firm will acquire a minority stake in Betashares, joining existing shareholders including staff members and private equity firm TA Associates. This move underscores Temasek’s commitment to enhancing Betashares’ market presence and facilitating its growth trajectory.

Betashares, a prominent player in Australia’s ETF industry, has seen substantial growth with assets under management exceeding A$38 billion and serving a vast clientele of over a million investors across the country, according to its website. The Australian ETF market has flourished, reaching a market capitalization of A$177.5 billion in 2023, driven by significant net inflows amounting to A$15 billion.

Alex Vynokur, Founder and CEO of Betashares, expressed optimism about the partnership with Temasek, highlighting its potential to accelerate the company’s strategic initiatives, including organic growth, acquisitions, and other strategic investments.

Temasek, managing assets valued at S$382 billion ($282.36 billion) as of March 31, 2023, boasts a diverse portfolio that includes major global companies such as Alibaba, DBS Group, and Tencent, underscoring its stature as a leading investment firm in Asia.

The investment by Temasek in Betashares aligns with both firms’ objectives to capitalize on opportunities in the rapidly evolving financial markets, positioning Betashares for further success in the competitive ETF landscape.
