Overview

Fund objective

QMAX aims to provide regular income along with exposure to a portfolio of the top 100 companies listed on the Nasdaq stock market. In addition, the Fund aims to provide lower overall volatility than the underlying Nasdaq 100 Index. QMAX does not aim to track an index.

Benefits of QMAX

  • Attractive quarterly income

    Income is expected to exceed the yield of the underlying share portfolio over the medium term. QMAX seeks to enhance dividend income through an active ‘covered call’ strategy.

  • Portfolio diversification

    In one ASX trade, gain exposure to a portfolio of the largest 100 companies listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange.

  • Cost-effective exposure

    QMAX provides a cost-effective way to gain exposure to a covered call income strategy.

There are risks associated with an investment in QMAX, including market risk, use of options risk, sector concentration risk, and currency 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.

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.
