Overview

Fund objective

BGBL aims to track the performance of an index (before fees and expenses) that provides exposure to an index comprising approximately 1,500 developed markets companies (ex-Australia).

Benefits of BGBL

  • Core portfolio allocation to global equities

    BGBL provides instant exposure to an index comprising approximately 1,500 companies from more than 20 developed market countries, making the Fund a compelling candidate for a core portfolio allocation to global equities.

  • Convenient, low-cost access

    With management costs of only 0.08% p.a. (or $8 for every $10,000 invested), BGBL is a cost-effective solution for investors seeking diversified exposure to global companies*.

  • Portfolio diversification

    BGBL provides exposure to companies from a broad range of global locations and across a wide range of sectors, many of which are under-represented in the Australian sharemarket.

*Other costs such as transaction costs may apply. Refer to the PDS for more information.

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.
