Overview

Fund objective

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

Benefits of MNRS

  • Diversification

    MNRS offers diversification and defensive benefits, as gold miners’ fortunes are closely tied to the price of gold, which has traditionally tended to perform well during times of market volatility and uncertainty.

  • Spread gold sector risk

    Investing in global gold miners enables you to simply and cost-effectively spread your risk beyond the relatively small Australian gold mining sector.

  • Cost-effective

    Passive, index-tracking approach means no ‘active manager’ fees, making MNRS a cost-effective investment for those seeking exposure to the global gold mining sector.

There are risks associated with an investment in MNRS, including market risk, sector risk, international investment risk, mining sector risk and 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.

 

How to invest

  • You can buy or sell units just like you’d buy or sell any share on the ASX.

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.

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.
