Overview

Fund objective

QOZ aims to track the performance an index (before fees and expenses) that comprises the top 200 companies listed on the ASX as measured by fundamental size.

Fund Strategy

The index which QOZ aims to track provides exposure to a diversified portfolio of Australian equities, weighted in a way that is reflective of the economic importance rather than the market capitalisation of its constituents. Constituent weighting is based on accounting values and is known as ”Fundamental indexing”.

Benefits of QOZ

  • Outperformance potential

    QOZ’s approach aims to deliver outperformance by selling expensive shares while buying those which are undervalued. By removing the link between the price of a stock and its weight in the index, QOZ’s strategy is less affected by fads and bubbles.

  • Diversified exposure

    Cost-effective exposure to 200 Australian companies in one ASX trade.

  • Cost-effective

    QOZ aims to deliver superior long-term performance compared to products based on market-cap weighted indices without the high fees associated with actively managed solutions.

There are risks associated with an investment in QOZ, including market risk, security specific risk and sector concentration risk. Investment value can go up and down. An investment in the Fund should only be considered as a part of a broader portfolio, taking into account your particular circumstances, including your tolerance for risk. For more information on risks and other features of the Fund, please see the Product Disclosure Statement and Target Market Determination, both available on this website.

Returns for periods longer than one year are annualised. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance shown.

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.
