The BetaShares QAU ETF provides investors with exposure to the performance of gold bullion, hedged into Australian dollars.
A Best ETFs No Rating rating is a fund rating our analysts apply to funds, LICs, mFunds, or ETFs that represents a ‘pending’ or ‘not yet researched’ status for the fund/ETF.
Please note, our rating methodology, research cycle, and process are currently being updated and will soon include full analyst ETF notes, reports, interviews, research, and ratings on select Australian ETFs and funds.

QAU invests in physical gold bullion (i.e., gold bars), that are held in an account maintained by JP Morgan Chase Bank at its London vault. The gold bullion must meet the standards required for certification as “London Good Delivery Bars”.
The BetaShares QAU ETF could be used by investors to gain exposure to the price of gold, without the inconvenience associated with directly purchasing, storing and insuring physical gold bullion. Investors commonly use gold as a hedge against uncertainty, because gold is often seen as a ‘safe haven’ asset in times of volatility.
