What does the AUST ASX ETF invest in?
The BetaShares AUST Fund invests in Australian shares, which offer growth and income potential, and also sells equity index futures contracts to manage risk. You could buy all of these companies yourself using a share brokerage account, but that would be a very expensive and time-consuming process.
What do investors use the AUST ETF for?
The BetaShares AUST Fund could be used by investors looking for a risk managed exposure to companies within the ASX 200. The risk management strategy is implemented by selling equity index futures contracts, which have a negative return when the market rises.
