BetaShares Bear Funds
BetaShares Bear Funds provide Australian investors with a simple and cost-efficient way to seek to profit from or protect their portfolio against declines in the market.
The Funds have been designed to go up when the sharemarket goes down (and vice versa), and therefore allow investors to buy funds that provide ‘short’ exposure to the market. The BetaShares Bear Series currently provides short exposure to the Australian and U.S. sharemarkets (the Funds should not be expected to provide the exact opposite of the relevant sharemarket return over any time period).
Because the Funds are traded on the ASX, investors can now access short exposure as simply as buying any share, meaning no need to trade complicated instruments such as CFDs or to short individual stocks.
