It has never been easier for Australian investors to broaden their investment horizons and diversify their portfolios by accessing international opportunities on the ASX.
BetaShares offers a broad range of international exchange traded products that provide access to specific regions, growth sectors, countries – or even the whole world. BetaShares international funds are like a passport for your portfolio.
Find growth opportunities beyond Australia
Australian investors are well aware that the local sharemarket is heavily concentrated, with significant weightings in particular to financials and resources. There are a number of other sectors, however, which have strong growth potential on a global scale but that have traditionally been difficult for Australian investors to access directly.
For example, sectors such as technology, cybersecurity, healthcare and agriculture are tipped for growth as the global population and life expectancy increases and our lives turn increasingly online, but there are only a very small number of Australian companies operating in these sectors.
BetaShares’ international and global sector Funds can provide investors access to these opportunities as simply as buying a share on the ASX.
No additional paperwork or administration beyond establishing a brokerage account
All BetaShares Funds are Australian-domiciled which means there is no additional paperwork or administration when you buy any of our international funds. For example, this means investors are not required to complete US W8-BEN forms or risk any estate tax implications, both of which are a possibility when one invests in non-Australian domiciled (or “cross listed”) ETFs.
