OVERVIEW

Fund Objective

POU aims to track the performance of the British pound against the Australian dollar (before fees and expenses).

If the British Pound goes up 10% against the A$ the Fund is designed to go up 10% too, before fees and expenses. Conversely, the Fund will go down if the British Pound falls.

Benefits of POU

Simple, convenient AUD/GBP exposure

POU can be bought and sold like any share on the ASX, avoiding the inconvenience and complexity of trading CFDs, or dealing in FX markets.

Low cost

Management fees are 0.45% p.a. For most investors, the total costs of ownership can be expected to be significantly cheaper than many alternative ways of getting exposure to the performance of the British Pound.

Portfolio diversification

Currency exposure can diversify your portfolio as currencies historically have shown low correlation to shares and other major asset classes.

How to Invest

  • You can buy or sell units just like you’d buy or sell any share on the ASX.
  • Fund requires no minimum investment.

Chart

Chart Type
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.

It is calculated as the difference between total Fund return and NAV return. NAV return is the change in the Fund's NAV price. Total return is the NAV return plus reinvestment of all distributions back to the Fund. Past performance not indicative of future performance.
