Other disclosure documentsAbout AtlasTrend
Before you can invest in one of our retail financial products we are required to provide you with a product disclosure statement (PDS). The PDS contains important information regarding the features, benefits, risks and fees applicable to an investment in that financial product, and should be read carefully to enable you to make an informed decision about whether to invest in the financial product. You should consult with your licensed financial adviser if required.
A Statement of Advice (SOA) will normally be given to you when you are provided with any personal advice, which takes into account your objectives, financial situation and needs. We do not provide personal advice. Therefore, we will not provide you with an SOA. An intermediary (such as a financial planner, stockbroker or dealer group) may provide you with an SOA.
AtlasTrend has been created with a mission to provide simple worldwide investing for everyone. The founders of AtlasTrend believe that the opportunity to invest worldwide should be accessible to as many people as possible. We bring you an engaging and transparent way to invest in trends worldwide such as the surge in online shopping.
Using AtlasTrend’s proprietary investment technology system, AtlasTrend’s investment team can rapidly assess an investment universe of approximately 5,000 large listed international companies with a relatively small team. As a result, we employ less people in the investment management team and can charge lower fees while still maintaining a highly robust investment management system.
To take advantage of AtlasTrend’s services, you must hold an AtlasTrend membership. Membership provides you with our insights on the leading world trends for investment and research on the underlying companies we have selected which benefit from these trends. Our standard terms of conditions for membership can be found here.
From time to time, AtlasTrend may run promotions, offers or incentives which:
- could include benefits such as discounting or waiving membership fees or providing additional goods or services free of charge;
