Invest with us


Fund objective

DBBF aims to provide exposure to a cost-effective, multi-asset class portfolio, for investors whose priority is investing in a way that aligns with their values. DBBF seeks to balance income and capital growth returns over the long term, and targets an allocation of 50% defensive assets (Australian and international bonds), 50% growth assets (Australian and international shares).

Fund strategy

DBBF is built using Betashares’ true-to-label, RIAA-certified* ethical ETFs – which combine positive climate leadership screens with a broad set of ESG criteria. DBBF provides exposure to a passive blending of asset classes, including Australian and global shares and bonds, according to its strategic asset allocation.

The Fund’s SAA is as follows:

If at the end of a calendar quarter the asset class weightings have deviated from the above SAA weightings by more than 2%, the Fund’s asset allocation will be rebalanced.

DBBF has been designed to suit investors with a ‘medium’ tolerance for risk, with an investment timeframe of at least 5 years.

1 This is the annual distribution return to the end of the relevant distribution date. The distribution return reflects the contribution to total investment return made by the Fund's distributions. Distribution return is calculated as the total return less the growth return. Total return is calculated as the percentage change in a continuing investor's interest in the Fund assuming reinvestment of all distributions back into the Fund (and no other application or withdrawal), net of ongoing fees. Growth return is the Fund's return excluding distributions, net of ongoing fees. Past performance is not indicative of future performance.
