BetaShares Geared U.S. Equity Fund - Currency Hedged (hedge fund)
A simple way to obtain cost-effective geared exposure to the U.S. sharemarket, in a single ASX trade, removing the need to borrow funds yourself or risk margin calls.
GGUS provides investors with cost-effective geared exposure to the returns of the broad U.S. sharemarket, hedged for currency exposure.
GGUS is ‘internally geared’, meaning all gearing obligations are met by the Fund. GGUS combines funds received from investors with borrowed funds and invests the proceeds in a broadly diversified share portfolio consisting of the largest 500 shares listed in the U.S. by market capitalisation (as measured by the S&P 500 Index). The Fund’s gearing ratio (being the total amount borrowed expressed as a percentage of the total assets of the Fund) is managed between 50-65%.
Gearing magnifies gains and losses and may not be a suitable strategy for all investors.
GGUS gives you the opportunity to make magnified gains when the U.S. sharemarket rises, and vice versa.
Avoid the costs and complications of margin loans and CFDs. No need to borrow funds, no credit assessment, and diversified exposure in a single ASX trade.
Investors in GGUS do not face the possibility of margin calls.
