AUST aims to provide exposure to a diversified portfolio of the largest 200 Australian shares, managed to reduce volatility and defend against losses during market downturns. AUST does not aim to track an index.

Benefits of AUST

  • Diversified exposure

    AUST holds a passively managed portfolio of the largest 200 shares listed on ASX.

  • A smoother investment ride

    AUST’s risk management strategy aims to decrease portfolio volatility, regardless of market conditions.

  • Defend against declining markets

    Potential to participate in the majority of sharemarket growth, while aiming for reduced downside in declining markets.

There are risks associated with an investment in AUST, including market risk, the risk management strategy may not be effective, and selling futures in rising markets can be expected to limit AUST’s capital growth. 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.
