Congratulations to Claire Hedges from Melbourne, the winner of the 2019 BetaShares Giveaway. Claire selected “Socially Responsible Companies” as the fund she’d add to her investment portfolio and has received $3,000 of units in the BetaShares Global Sustainability Leaders ETF (ASX: ETHI).
Why did you select ETHI as the fund you’d like to own?
I selected ETHI as the fund I’d like to own as I like to invest ethically, supporting companies which are serious about climate change and having positive impacts on society. I also like the low management fees and admire the performance of ETHI in the market.
Why did you start investing?
I started investing because I wanted to do something productive with my savings and I saw investing in ETFs as a proactive way to beat inflation. It’s also giving me an opportunity to plan ahead and help provide stability for me later in life
If you had one snippet of advice to give to anyone thinking about investing, what would you say to encourage them to get started?
I would encourage anyone who’s thinking about investing to take the leap and start. It’s daunting at first and there’s a lot to know but the best way to learn and gain confidence is by making that initial investment.
Thank you to everyone who entered and keep engaged with BetaShares for future giveaways, ETF investing information and portfolio construction tips.
