Factsheet

Overview

Fund objective

The Fund aims to track the performance of an index (before fees and expenses) comprising the 200 largest companies by market capitalisation listed on the ASX.

Benefits

  • Low-cost investing

    Gain low-cost access to the broad Australian share market, with annual fund charges of only 0.23% p.a. of net asset value (or $23 for every $10,000 invested).*

  • Portfolio diversification

    Sector weightings of the Australian share market are very different to that of the NZ share market. The Fund offers portfolio diversification benefits to investors with existing exposure to the broad NZ share market.

  • Flexible exposure

    The Fund can be used as your core allocation to Australian shares, or to gain tactical exposure to Australian equities.

*Other costs, such as transaction costs, may apply. Refer to the PDS for more information.

There are risks associated with an investment in the Fund, including market risk, security-specific risk, industry sector risk and index tracking risk. Investment value can go up and down. An investment in the Fund should only be considered as a part of a broader portfolio, taking into account your particular circumstances, including your tolerance for risk. For more information on risks and other features of the Fund, please see the Product Disclosure Statement, SIPO and OMI,  available on this website.
