As the exchange traded investment fund industry has matured and developed, a wide range of investment options are now available for investors who are looking for exposure to Australian shares.
Whether you want to invest in the broad Australian sharemarket, Australian bank shares, Australian mining shares or gain exposure to Australian high dividend shares, an increasing number of investors are now using exchange traded investment funds to help them build better investment portfolios.
BetaShares has a suite of ETFs and other funds which provide investors with a simple way to gain exposure to a portfolio of Australian shares.
BetaShares’ range of Australian share funds cover a variety of investment categories and strategies, from simple broad sharemarket exposure, high income strategies through to geared and short funds.
Diversification in a single trade
You can buy our Funds just like any share but, unlike a share in a single company, our Australian share funds provide exposure to a basket of shares and so provides instant diversification which reduces stock specific investment risk in your portfolio.
Simple to access and transparent
Investing in one of BetaShares’ Australian share funds can be done as simply as buying a share on the ASX and there is information available on our website on your investment, including full disclosure of the underlying holdings in each of our funds.
