Further to the ASX announcements made on 8 July and 10 August 2021, we advise that the consolidation of units on issue in BBUS on a 1 for 10 basis has now been completed. Investors are reminded that any trading activity undertaken during the period 12 August to 18 August 2021 (inclusive) will settle on 23 August 2021. All investors in BBUS have now been issued a holding statement confirming the number of consolidated units that they hold.
BBUS seeks to generate magnified returns that are negatively correlated to the returns of the U.S. sharemarket. The Fund expects to generate a magnified positive return when the S&P 500 Total Return Index falls (and a magnified negative return when the index rises).
A 1% fall in the U.S. sharemarket on a given day can generally be expected to deliver a 2% to 2.75% increase in the value of the Fund (and vice versa).
NB: The Fund’s portfolio exposure is actively monitored and adjusted to stay within a -2x to -2.75x range on any given day. The Fund’s returns will not necessarily be in the range -2x to -2.75x over periods longer than a day, due to the effects of rebalancing and compounding of investment returns over time. Investors should monitor their investment to ensure it continues to meet their investment objectives.
The Fund uses futures to obtain its exposure rather than the underlying shares. As the futures market closes at a later time to the share market, at times the Fund’s performance for a given day may differ from that indicated by the share market. As the U.S. futures market is open during ASX trading hours, the Fund’s performance during the day will reflect movements in the futures market.
Gearing magnifies gains and losses and may not be a suitable strategy for all investors.
