Fund Objective

YANK aims to provide geared exposure to changes in the value of the U.S. dollar against the Australian dollar.

Fund Strategy

YANK generally expects to generate a positive return of between 2% and 2.75% for a 1% rise in the value of the U.S. dollar against the Australian dollar on a given day (and vice versa).

Returns over longer periods will not necessarily be equivalent to the expected return on a given day. Gearing magnifies gains and losses and may not be a suitable strategy for all investors. 

Benefits of YANK

Geared exposure to a rising USD

Potential to make magnified gains if the USD appreciates against the AUD (and vice versa).

Simple to access, convenience

YANK is traded in Australian dollars on the ASX, avoiding the inconvenience and complexity of trading CFDs, or dealing in FX markets. No margin calls.

Portfolio diversification

Currency exposure can diversify your portfolio, as currencies historically have shown low correlation to shares and most other major asset classes.

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.

Current Gearing Multiple** (x) 2.38
* As at 18 September 2020. Calculated as Fund borrowings divided by Fund total assets. Current Gearing Ratio is as at start of the above date and can be expected to vary throughout the day.
**Represents the Fund's approximate exposure, for 18 September 2020, to the change in value of the U.S. dollar relative to the Australian dollar as measured by the futures contract held in the Fund. For example, if the Fund's Gearing multiple is 2.30x and the U.S. dollar goes up relative to the Australian dollar by 1% that day, the Fund would be expected to go up approximately 2.30% that day, before fees and expenses. The Fund is actively managed and the portfolio exposure will change on a daily basis, affecting returns over time.

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.
