The distributions shown above are historical and no warranty can be given for future distributions.

The fund may earn income (such as dividends and interest) from its investments and may also realise capital gains or losses on the sale of its investments. Income and net realised capital gains are distributed to unitholders annually as at 30 June. The components of the distribution will vary from year to year, the details of which are set out in the annual distribution and tax statements provided to unitholders. There may also be times when no distribution is payable.

Distributions are calculated in dollars-per-unit on the number of units held by a unitholder as at the end of the distribution date. This means that a unitholder’s distribution entitlement from the fund is not pro-rated for the duration of the unitholder’s investment in the fund during the tax year.

When a distribution is made, the unit price will fully reflect the distribution.

Unitholders will generally receive their entitlement (if payable) within 15 Business Days after the distribution date.

Unitholders may elect to have their distribution entitlement:
  • reinvested as additional units in the same unit class of the fund;
  • paid into the unitholder’s nominated financial institution account; or
  • fixed cash distribution option, currently set at 4% per annum
If no election is made, the unitholder’s distribution entitlement will be automatically reinvested. Additional units will be issued at the net asset value unit price on the relevant Business Day, and the buy spread will not apply.

Visit Manage your Investment to change your distribution election.
PGTX has in place an active Distribution Reinvestment Plan (DRP) which provides investors with an optional and convenient service to acquire additional units in PGTX by automatically reinvesting all or part of their 30 June annual distribution.

FAQs

Our active ETMFs are also known as Quoted Managed Hedge Funds (“QMFs”).
The funds we currently offer include the Platinum International Fund (Quoted Managed Hedge Fund) (ASX code: PIXX), Platinum Asia Fund (Quoted Managed Hedge Fund) (ASX code: PAXX) and Platinum International Fund (Quoted Managed Hedge Fund) (ASX code: PGTX).
For more information on the active ETMFs we offer, please go to https://www.platinum.com.au/active-etfs.
The key advantages for investors wishing to invest in our active ETMFs are:
  • The benefit of knowing the fund’s intra-day indicative NAV per unit prior to transacting.
  • The funds are easy to access as units in active ETMFs trade, clear and settle in the same way as shares in ASX-listed companies and can be acquired through any licensed broker (including broking platforms) without the need for lengthy paperwork.
  • Annual income distribution.
  • No minimum investment amounts
PGTX primarily invests in listed equity securities that are seeking to financial benefit from the carbon transition, that is, the transition away from fossil fuel-derived energy and goods production and consumption.
The Monthly Update for the Fund can be found under the “Updates and Reports” section on the PGTX product page and provides details of the invested position, top ten stock positions and industry breakdown. The ASX also requires Platinum to disclose the portfolio holdings for PGTX each quarter (with a time-lag of two months) which can be found on the PGTX page under ASX Announcements.
Units in active ETMFs (including active ETMFs) trade, clear and settle in the same way as do shares in ASX-listed companies, and therefore can be accessed through any broker (including online broking platforms) without the need for lengthy paperwork.
Active ETMFs give investors the advantage of knowing the fund’s intra-day indicative NAV (“iNAV”) per unit before placing a trade. The iNAV provides an intra-day indicative value of the Fund based on the value of the underlying holdings within the Fund and taking account of investor supply and demand, as well as current market conditions. The actual net asset values (NAV) per unit are calculated and published each Business Day under normal market conditions. Both the iNAV and NAV per unit are published on our website
The actual price at which units are traded on the ASX AQUA market may not reflect either the NAV or the iNAV per unit of the Fund.
Market makers match buy and sell orders for investors that want to trade units in the fund. The market maker provides liquidity to the market by supplying quotes and updating their prices to reflect changes in the underlying securities, market conditions and the supply and demand for the units throughout the ASX trading day. Platinum has engaged J.P. Morgan Securities Australia Limited as its market making agent.
For all fund related enquiries, please contact Platinum's Investor Services Team.
For enquiries about your holdings in PGTX, please contact the registry, Link Market Services Limited on +61 1300 306 413 or via [email protected].
Link Market Services can provide assistance with the following:
  • Updating the name or address on the holding
  • Providing bank account details DRP, email address or TFN instructions
  • A request for forms to be emailed or posted
  • Transaction histories (as at settlement date)
  • Off market transfers & holding merge queries
  • Guidance and assistance with the online Link Investor Centre
  • Guidance and assistance completing & submitting Link forms
  • Statement replacements
  • Payment replacements
Active ETMFs such as PIXX, PAXX and PGTX have a unit trust structure and are open-ended, which means that new units are issued and existing units are cancelled based on investor demand and capital flows.
A typical Australian exchange traded managed fund (ETMF) also has a trust structure and is open-ended but is not actively managed and instead tracks a market index.
Listed investment companies (LICs) are closed-ended investment vehicles that are established in the form of a company. They do not regularly issue new shares or cancel existing shares and so their cash flows and investment decisions are not impacted by daily fund inflows and outflows (as is the case for managed funds). However, the share price of a LIC can (and often does) differ from the underlying value of the LIC’s portfolio of investments.
You may use our Product Comparison Tool to view specific differences between our products, visit: https://www.platinum.com.au/product-comparison
The Fund normally distributes to investors annually at 30 June (although we do have the discretion to change the frequency and to pay additional distributions out of income or capital).
Australian or New Zealand investors may elect for their entitlement to be reinvest or paid to a nominated bank account.
Details of the Distribution Reinvestment Plan can be found on our website https://www.platinum.com.au/media/Platinum/Default/pgtx_drp.pdf.
PGTX is accessibly by two means: investors can enter the Fund either by buying units on the ASX or by applying for units directly through the Unit Registry using an Application Form.
PAXX and PIXX can only be accessed by buying units on the ASX.
