Overview

Fund objective

QLTY aims to track an index (before fees and expenses) that comprises 150 global companies (ex-Australia) ranked by highest quality score.

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.

Benefits of QLTY

  • Access to the world’s highest quality companies

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

  • Outperformance potential

    The Fund’s focus on quality aims to produce superior long-term performance compared to benchmark global equities indices.

  • 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.

There are risks associated with an investment in QLTY, including market risk, index methodology risk, international investment risk, concentration risk and currency risk. Investment value can go up and down. An investment in the Fund should only be made after considering 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.

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
