OVERVIEW

Fund Objective

HQLT aims to track an index (before fees and expenses) that comprises 150 global companies (ex-Australia) ranked by highest quality score, hedged into Australian dollars.

Fund Strategy

The quality score rankings used to select the stocks in the index are based on a combined ranking of four key factors – return on equity, debt-to-capital, cash flow generation ability and earnings stability. HQLT currently obtains its investment exposure by investing in the BetaShares Global Quality Leaders ETF (ASX: QLTY), with the currency exposure hedged back to the Australian dollar.

Benefits of HQLT

Access to the world’s highest quality companies

HQLT’s index has been designed to select quality global companies based on high return on equity and profitability, low leverage and earnings stability.

Currency-hedged

HQLT is currency-hedged to the Australian dollar, which seeks to minimise the effects of currency fluctuations on returns.

Diversification

In one ASX trade, access a portfolio of 150 high quality companies from a range of geographies and global sectors, many of which are under-represented in the Australian sharemarket.

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.
