How we invest your money
The methodology employed by Morningstar in calculating the Index can be found HERE
Each Fund will attempt to (before fees and expenses) fully replicate the performance of the relevant Index by investing its assets in a portfolio of securities that comprise the Index in proportion to the weight assigned to each security within the Index.
Any changes in the composition of an Index, whether due to scheduled rebalancing or other unscheduled events (e.g.corporate actions), will generally be reflected in the portfolio of securities held by a Fund as soon as practically possible.
In certain circumstances, it may not be possible or practical for the Responsible Entity to exactly replicate the Index. For example, trading in particular securities may be suspended. In other circumstances the exact replication of the Index may be impractical or excessively costly, for example where the Index comprises a large number of securities that are assigned small weights.
To assist investors, each Fund's full portfolio holdings will be published on a daily basis at the same time that Authorised Participants and market makers are provided with portfolio composition files.
Each Fund may hold derivative contracts from time to time, such as exchange traded options written on the Index or its constituent securities, and other investments that do not comprise the Index, but help to achieve the investment objectives of that Fund. These other investments that do not comprise the index may include for example:
These are expected to be used in limited circumstances.
Cash balances may also be held in each Fund from time to time. None of the Funds will engage in securities lending.
