Benefits of investing in the BetaShares Australian Sustainability Leaders ETF
About the Fund
The Fund aims to track the performance of an index (before fees and expenses) that provides exposure to Australian companies that have been screened to preference companies engaged in sustainable business activities and to avoid companies engaged in activities deemed inconsistent with responsible investment considerations.
How to use this ETF in your portfolio
How we invest your money
In seeking to achieve the investment objective, the Responsible Entity will employ a passive management approach designed to track the performance of the Index, before fees and expenses.
The Fund will generally invest in the securities that comprise the Index in proportion to the weightings of the securities in the Index. This is known as a "full replication strategy. As far as practicable, the timing and nature of any changes to the composition of the Fund's investments will generally correspond with the timing and nature of changes to the Index.
In a variety of circumstances, however, the holdings of the Fund may not exactly replicate the Index. For example, it may not be possible or practical to do so in some circumstances, such as where investment restrictions apply which would prevent direct investment in a particular security. The Fund, from time to time, may not hold all of the securities comprising the Index and may hold securities in weightings which differ from the Index.
Investors will be able to regularly compare the performance of the Fund against the performance of the Index via the BetaShares website at www.betashares.com.au.
The Fund may hold exchange-traded derivatives contracts from time to time (e.g. futures contracts) and other investments that do not form part of the Index where this may help to achieve the Fund's investment objective. For example, exchange-traded derivatives may be used where direct investment in a particular security or securities is not possible or practical, or to obtain an investment exposure without physically buying or selling the underlying asset. Derivatives will only be used in limited circumstances and will not be used to leverage the Fund.
As at the date of the PDS, the Responsible Entity does not intend to engage in securities lending in connection with the Fund, although it may do so in the future provided that any such change is notified in advance to investors and potential investors via a supplementary or new PDS accessible through the ASX Market Announcements Platform.
For information on the Index and stock screening criteria, please see section 2 of the PDS.
