What does the GEAR invest in?

GEAR uses investor capital and borrows additional funds to invest in the ASX 200 Index. GEAR provides investors with magnified gains when the Australian sharemarket rises, and magnified losses when the market falls.

What do investors use GEAR for?

The BetaShares GEAR ETF could be used by investors to gain leveraged exposure to the S&P/ASX 200 Index. The Fund’s gearing ratio is managed between 50-65%, and investors do not face the possibility of margin calls. Please note that gearing magnifies an investor’s gains and losses, and will not be a suitable strategy for all investors.
