How we invest your money
The investment objective of the BetaShares Australian Resources Sector ETF is to provide an investment return that tracks the performance of the Solactive Australia Resources Sector Index (the "Index), before taking into account fees and expenses.
The Solactive Australia Resources Sector Index is a subset of the Solactive Australia 200 Index and comprises the shares of the largest companies involved in the resources industry listed on the ASX. The resources industry includes a broad range of companies involved in the extraction and production of metals and minerals (including base metals, precious metals (such as gold), other metals and minerals, iron ore and other steel-related ores) and the energy sector (including oil and gas production, oil refining, contract drilling, coal and other consumable fuels related to the generation of energy, and energy equipment and services).
The constituents of the Index are derived from the eligible pool of securities within the Solactive Australia 200 Index, an index which generally comprises 200 of the largest securities by float- adjusted market capitalisation and liquidity listed on the ASX. All securities that are part of the Solactive Australia 200 Index and are classified as being in the resources sector according o their Factset sub-industry classification are included in the Index.
The Index employs a free-float adjusted market capitalisation weighted methodology that adjusts for the percentage of a company's shares that are publicly available for trading. Under the methodology, the weighting of each constituent in the Index is determined by the float-adjusted market capitalisation assigned to the security.
The Index rebalances quarterly in March, June, September and December. Index changes take effect after the close of trading on the third Friday in the relevant month.
Solactive may, from time to time, exercise reasonable discretion as it deems appropriate in order to ensure Index integrity. The nature and method of calculation of the Index may change from time to time.
