Warrants can assist you to achieve leveraged returns, diversify into a market or sector, protect the value of underlying assets or earn extra income. Warrants are available on a broad range of underlying securities, such as shares, commodities, currencies and indices, with different maturity dates and exercise prices.

  • ETFs & ETCs. Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) provide instant diversification at a low cost and offer all the flexibility of a share. An ETF tracks an index, a commodity or a basket of assets like an index fund, and enables you to invest in the entire index or sector with one single trade.
  • Managed funds. Whether you're saving for a home, need a regular income or want to grow your wealth over the long term, BT offers a wide range of managed funds across all asset classes and different investment managers.
  • Separately Managed Accounts. SMA are professionally administered investment accounts. They are similar to a managed fund, where the portfolio is managed in accordance with a specific investment strategy. The securities are visible, portable and as the investor, you remain the beneficial owner of the shares.
