What does the ROBO invest in?

ROBO invests in all the shares that make up the ROBO Global Robotics and Automation Index, closely in proportion to their index weights. For the selection process, the Index classifies companies as either “bellwether” stocks (where a majority of business is related to robotics and automation) or “non-bellwether” stocks (where only a distinct portion of business is involved in robotics and automation). The Index then allocates 40% to bellwether companies and 60% to non-bellwether companies.

What do investors use ROBO for?

The ROBO ETF could be used by Australian investors to gain exposure to the RAAI investment thematic. These are companies that have the potential to disrupt industries around the world, and the ROBO ETF provides investors with a means to participate in this high growth and rapidly evolving megatrend.

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.

When an ETF does not have a sufficiently long track record — typically, we consider this to be at least 3 years — the ETF is could be at a higher risk of being closed down (if it doesn’t grow), and the historical performance and returns (if any) cannot be relied upon.

Tax Domicile

When a fund/ETF has a “domicile” of Australia it means it is a registered fund in Australia for tax purposes.

Registry

Computershare is not only the largest share registry in Australia but also the world. The company was founded in 1978 as one of Melbourne’s first start-up technology companies, initially providing computer services to businesses.
