BetaShares launches Managed Risk Australian Share Fund – providing sharemarket exposure with a smoother investment ride
We are pleased to announce the launch of the BetaShares Managed Risk Australian Share Fund (managed fund), which is trading under the ASX code “AUST”.
The Fund’s investment strategy is to invest in a passively managed basket of Australian shares (generally consisting of approximately 200 of the largest shares on the ASX by market capitalisation), providing investors with the opportunity for capital growth and income. In addition, the Fund will employ an active risk management strategy, which seeks to reduce volatility and defend against losses in declining markets.
Although suitable for a range of investors, AUST has been specifically designed to meet the needs of SMSFs, pre-retirees and retiree investors, who are seeking equity exposure but who may be concerned about uncertain financial markets.
