    Past performance is not an indicator of future performance. Returns are calculated in Australian dollars using net asset value per unit at the start and end of the specified period and do not reflect brokerage or the bid ask spread that investors incur when buying and selling units on the ASX. Returns are after fund management costs, assume reinvestment of any distributions and do not take into account tax paid as an investor in the Fund. Returns for periods longer than one year are annualised. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance shown.

    iNAV is an indicative estimate only, may not reflect the true value of a unit and may be materially out of date at the time viewed. It should not be relied on in making any investment decision. See Terms and Conditions for more information.

    An investment in units of any BetaShares Fund is subject to risk, which may include possible delays in repayment and loss of income and capital invested. The value of units may go down as well as up. Past performance is not an indication of future performance. Before making an investment decision you should consider the relevant PDS (available on this website) with a financial advisor to determine if it is appropriate for your circumstances. Commodity ETFs: The index which each BetaShares commodity ETF aims to track is based on the price of futures contracts.  Investing in commodity futures is not the same as investing in the “spot price” of a given commodity. The ETFs do not aim to, and should not be expected to, provide the same return as the performance of the spot price of the relevant commodities. The performance of ETFs that are linked to commodity futures may be materially different to the spot price for the commodity itself. Also, differences in trading hours of the underlying futures markets and their corresponding BetaShares ETFs may at certain times cause the difference between bid prices and offer prices on the ASX to widen significantly. Investors should carefully consider this potential impact before trading. Please refer to the "Risks" section of the PDS for more information about these and other risk factors.
