Betashares Global Quality Leaders Fund

Invest in a portfolio of 150 global companies ranked by highest quality score

Factsheet

Overview

Fund objective

The Fund aims to track an index (before fees and expenses) that comprises 150 global companies (ex-Australia) ranked by highest quality score.

Fund strategy

The quality score rankings used to select the stocks in the index are based on a combined ranking of four key factors – return on equity, debt-to-capital, cash flow generation ability and earnings stability.

Benefits

  • Access to the world’s highest quality companies

    The Fund’s index has been designed to select quality global companies based on high return on equity and profitability, low leverage and earnings stability.

  • Outperformance potential

    The Fund’s focus on quality aims to produce long-term performance superior to that of benchmark global equities indices, but without the high costs of active managers.

  • Diversification

    The Fund provides access to a portfolio of high quality companies from a range of geographies and global sectors, many of which are under-represented in the Australian and NZ sharemarkets.

There are risks associated with an investment in the Fund, including market risk, index methodology risk, international investment risk, concentration risk and currency risk. Investment value can go up and down. An investment in the Fund should only be made after considering 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.

Risk indicator

The Fund is expected to have a very high level of volatility. See the PDS for more information regarding the risk indicator.
