SPDR ETFs are a comprehensive family spanning an array of international and domestic asset classes. SPDR ETFs provide professional investors with the flexibility to select investments that are precisely aligned to their investment strategy. Recognized as the industry pioneer, State Street—in partnership with the American Stock Exchange—created the first ETF in 1993 (SPDR S&P 500 – Ticker SPY). Since then, we've sustained our place as an industry innovator through the introduction of many ground-breaking products, including first-to-market successes with gold, international real estate, international fixed income and sector ETFs. SPDR ETFs are managed or marketed by SSGA or SSGA Funds Management, Inc., a registered investment adviser and wholly owned subsidiary of State Street Bank and Trust Company.

ETFs trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk and will fluctuate in market value.

Frequent trading of ETFs could significantly increase commissions and other costs such that they may offset any savings from low fees or costs.
