The GOAT ETF tracks the performance of the Morningstar Developed Markets ex-Australia Wide Moat Focus Index. The index invests in 50 to 100 ‘wide moat’ companies, as defined by Morningstar, whose competitive advantages will provide excess returns for 20 years or more.
Companies/shares you may recognise in the top 10 holdings of the GOAT ETF include popular US companies from the technology and consumer goods sectors. Holdings are primarily domiciled in the United States, however, they seem well diversified, with the largest individual share holdings often accounting for less than 4% of the portfolio.
The GOAT ETF can be used by investors as a specialised exposure to shares of large international companies that exhibit ‘defensive’ characteristics and are reasonably priced, according to analysts at Morningstar.
Dividend yield information is coming soon (how good is that!).
