What does the QUS invest in?

The BetaShares QUS ETF invests in US shares, which offer both income and growth potential. QUS tracks the FTSE RAFI US 1000 Index which is designed to track the performance of the largest US companies based on four fundamental measures: sales, cash flow, dividends and book value. In this way, the strategy removes the link between a company’s share price and its weight in the index. QUS seeks to outperform traditional market capitalisation-weighted ETFs by selling fundamentally ‘expensive’ shares while buying those which are deemed ‘undervalued’.

What do investors use QUS for?

The BetaShares QUS ETF could be used by investors looking to gain exposure to a broad and large basket of US companies. These companies are likely to grow their profit over time and pay semi-regular dividends to their shareholders.

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.

FUM

If an ETF has a small amount of funds under management or FUM (meaning, the amount of money invested in the ETF), it risks being closed by the fund manager.

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.
