What does the KSM invest in?

KSM invests in a diversified portfolio of Australian small to mid-cap equities, while being index unaware. Fund manager K2 Asset Management looks for high-quality companies in industries with a strong growth outlook and high barriers to entry.

What do investors use KSM for?

KSM could be used by investors looking to gain active exposure to a broad basket of smaller Australian-listed companies. Please note: KSM is actively managed and does not track an index like a traditional ETF. This means that KSM will have a different performance and risk profile, as well as higher management fees, than typical Australian ETFs.

Best ETFs warnings

The following warnings are applied by our team, based on quantitative metrics and our internal methodology. These risks are not exhaustive and therefore they should not be relied upon. Always read the PDS of the function and speak to your financial adviser before acting on this information.

When an ETF does not have a sufficiently long track record — typically, we consider this to be at least 3 years — the ETF is could be at a higher risk of being closed down (if it doesn’t grow), and the historical performance and returns (if any) cannot be relied upon.

Tax Domicile

When a fund/ETF has a “domicile” of Australia it means it is a registered fund in Australia for tax purposes. This means investors who buy into this fund or ETF, and are Australian residents for tax purposes, will be subject to Australian taxes and regulation. 

Registry

BoardRoom is the third-largest share registry company in Australia and has been around for over 50 years. The company has more than 7,300 clients globally and operates across the Asia-Pacific region in key markets like Singapore, Hong Kong, China, and Malaysia.
