    The NAV is generally calculated daily after all markets are closed for that day based on the closing price of the securities on the relevant foreign stock exchange. The NAV is then converted to AUD based on the relevant London WM Reuters 4pm exchange rate. This means, due to Australia’s time zone, that the NAV will generally not be updated until around 3pm next business day.

    Summary of Index methodology

    The Index seeks to identify the largest companies in the health care sector with the best growth at a reasonable price (GARP) attributes, being the best drivers of long-term capital appreciation. The Index constituents are selected on the basis of the strength of their fundamentals across four factor categories: growth, value, profitability and cash flow. The 50 Index constituents are equally weighted at each semi-annual rebalance.


    The Index is reviewed and rebalanced on a semi-annual basis, usually as of the close of the third Friday of March and September.
