Fund objective

AUDS aims to provide geared exposure to changes in the value of the Australian dollar against the U.S. dollar.

Fund strategy

AUDS generally expects to generate a positive return of between 2% and 2.75% for a 1% rise in the value of the Australian dollar against the U.S. dollar on a given day (and a corresponding negative return when the Australian dollar falls in value on a given day).

The Fund’s portfolio exposure is actively monitored and adjusted to stay within a 2x to 2.75x range on any given day. The Fund’s returns will not necessarily be in the range 2x to 2.75x over periods longer than a day, due to the effects of rebalancing to maintain the Fund’s daily target geared exposure range and compounding of investment returns over time. The Fund’s returns over periods longer than one day may differ in amount and possibly direction from the daily target return range. This effect on returns over time can be expected to be more pronounced the more volatile the AUD/USD currency exchange rate and the longer an investor’s holding period.

Due to the effects of rebalancing and compounding of investment returns over time, investors should not expect the Fund’s Net Asset Value to be at a particular level for a given value of the Australian dollar relative to the U.S. dollar at any point in time.

Investors should actively monitor their investment as frequently as daily to ensure it continues to meet their investment objectives.

Gearing magnifies gains and losses and may not be a suitable strategy for all investors. An investment in the Fund is very high risk in nature.
