Invest with us


Fund objective

QAU is backed by physical gold bullion and aims to track the performance of the price of gold, hedged for currency movements in the AUD/USD exchange rate (before fees and expenses).

Benefits of QAU

  • Simple to access, convenient exposure

    Obtain exposure to the performance of gold without the need to directly buy, store and insure physical gold bars.

  • 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.

There are risks associated with an investment in QAU, including market risk, gold price risk and currency hedging 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.

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.


Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Please refer to "Fund returns after fees" for additional information regarding performance/return information.

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.
