Every year in July, tax statements are made available to investors in all BetaShares funds that have paid a distribution during the previous financial year. In July 2020 these statements will cover the period commencing 1 July 2019 and ending 30 June 2020.

  • Whereas in previous years these tax statements were printed and sent by post to all unitholders who had not specifically requested them to be communicated electronically, we have now changed the default tax statement communication option from paper post to digital.
  • As such, BetaShares Fund Tax Statements will not be sent via paper post this year unless this is specifically requested via Link.
  • We’ve made this change for unitholder convenience but also to reduce the carbon footprint associated with paper-post sends.

Supporting the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife

To mark the transition to digital communications, BetaShares is donating 100% of the cost that would have been spent on printing and posting our FY19/20 Fund Tax Statements
to the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife.

BetaShares 2019 Giveaway – winner announced

21 Aug 2019

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).

Interview highlights:

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.
