Benefits of QAU

Simple to access, convenient exposure

Defend against uncertainty

Gold often regarded as a ‘safe haven’ asset in times of volatility and economic uncertainty.

Backed by gold bullion

QAU is backed by physical gold bullion bars, which are held in a vault of JP Morgan Chase in London. Investors can view the gold bar list at any time on BetaShares’ website.

Chart Type
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.
