Betashares QOZ ETF (ASX:QOZ)
The BetaShares QOZ ETF provides exposure to a ‘fundamentally weighted’ index of 200 large Australian shares. This ETF focuses on weighting the portfolio with a focus on ‘economic importance’ rather than market capitalisation, while also aiming to outperform traditional market-cap weighted indices.
What does the QOZ invest in?
The BetaShares QOZ ETF invests in Australian shares, which offer growth and income potential. You could buy all of these companies yourself using a share brokerage account, but that would be a very expensive and time-consuming process. ETFs are an effective way to invest in an entire sector through a single trade.
What do investors use QOZ for?
The QOZ ETF could be used by investors to gain exposure to 200 large Australian companies, without weighting the holdings purely based on the shares market capitalisation. Please note: QOZ’s “fundamentally weighted” index will have a different performance and risk profile compared to a traditional sharemarket index, such as the ASX 200, which uses a company’s market capitalisation.
