Overview

Fund Objective

HJPN aims to track the performance of an index (before fees and expenses) that provides diversified exposure to the largest globally competitive Japanese companies, hedged into Australian dollars.

Benefits of HJPN

  • Portfolio diversification

    Diversified exposure to the Japanese sharemarket, which includes a number of sectors that are under-represented in the Australian sharemarket.

  • Access globally competitive Japanese stocks

    HJPN’s portfolio includes only the largest Japanese companies that generate a substantial portion of their revenues from outside Japan.

  • Currency hedged

    The Fund’s Japanese yen exposure is currency hedged, reducing the effect of currency fluctuations on portfolio performance.

There are risks associated with an investment in HJPN, including market risk and country 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.

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.

Note: On 19 July 2019, the Fund’s benchmark index changed to the S&P Japan Exporters Hedged AUD Index. Accordingly, performance, sector/country allocation and top exposures shown for the period prior to 19 July 2019 reflect the previous benchmark index.

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.
Inception date refers to the inception of the Fund's current investment strategy. Prior to the inception date, the Fund traded under a different investment strategy. Information about the Fund's performance prior to the current strategy inception date is available on request by emailing [email protected] or calling 1300 487 577.

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
