The Exposure report allows you to view the underlying individual stocks in each of your ETF portfolios. This report provides a comprehensive view of the exposure of your ETFs, alongside your direct investments.

It is essential to understand the exposure of the underlying assets for risk management and portfolio diversification. This ensures that your investments are spread out across different types of assets, reducing the risk to your overall portfolio. Additionally, understanding the exposure helps you manage any associated risks or losses by knowing what investments you have and how much risk they carry.

The report covers the main market ETFs such as AU, CA, NZ, UK and USA. The portfolio exposure for the current holdings is represented visually in a pie chart. A detailed breakdown by holding is provided in the table below the pie chart.

The report can be run to show the exposure of a portfolio by the following groupings:

  • Market
  • Currency
  • Sector Classification
  • Industry Classification
  • Investment type
  • Country
  • Do not group (This will be the default selection)

The report will indicate the top 50 underlying holdings that make up an ETF, with any other holdings grouped together as “Residual ETF”. Any holdings that you possess directly will be designated as “Direct” in the report.

Exposure report is also available in ‘consolidated views’.
