OVERVIEW

Fund Objective

FOOD aims to track the performance of an index (before fees and expenses) that comprises the largest global agriculture companies (ex-Australia), hedged into Australian dollars.

Benefits of FOOD

Growing global demand for food

Growing populations and rising global living standards support increasing strong demand for agricultural products (food and food production).

Portfolio diversification

Access a diversified portfolio of the world’s largest agriculture companies in one trade, allowing instant diversification away from the Australian sharemarket.

Cost-effective

Passive, index-tracking approach means no ‘active manager’ fees, making FOOD a cost-effective investment for those seeking exposure to global agriculture companies.

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.

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.
