Overview

Fund objective

USD aims to track the performance of the US dollar against the Australian dollar (before fees and expenses).

If the US dollar goes up 10% against the A$ the Fund is designed to go up 10% too, before fees and expenses. Conversely, the Fund will go down if the US dollar falls.

Benefits of USD

  • Simple, convenient AUD/USD exposure

    USD can be bought and sold like any share on the ASX, avoiding the inconvenience and complexity of opening a foreign currency bank account, trading CFDs, or dealing in FX markets.

  • Attractive income potential

    USD has the potential to generate attractive income on its US dollar bank deposits, for investors comfortable with foreign exchange fluctuations.

  • Cost effective

    For most investors, the total costs of ownership can be expected to be significantly cheaper than many alternative ways of getting exposure to the performance of the US dollar.

There are risks associated with an investment in USD, including market risk, foreign currency risk and interest rate 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.

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.
