Important Information

In general, ETFs can be expected to move up or down in value with the
value of the applicable index. Although ETFs may be bought and sold on
the exchange through any brokerage account, ETFs are not individually
redeemable from the Fund. Investors may acquire ETFs and tender them for
redemption through the Fund in Creation Unit Aggregations only, please
see the prospectus for more details.

Because the SPDR SSGA Active Asset Allocation ETFs are actively managed,
they are therefore subject to the risk that the investments selected by
SSGA may cause the ETFs to underperform relative to their benchmarks or
other funds with similar investment objectives.

Investing involves risk including the risk of loss of principal.

ETFs trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk, fluctuate in
market value and may trade at prices above or below the ETFs net asset
value. Brokerage commissions and ETF expenses will reduce returns.

All ETFs are subject to risk, including possible loss of principal.

Foreign (non-U.S.) Securities may be subject to greater political,
economic, environmental, credit and information risks. Foreign
securities may be subject to higher volatility than U.S. securities, due
to varying degrees of regulation and limited liquidity. These risks are
magnified in emerging markets.

Bond funds contain interest rate risk (as interest rates rise bond
prices usually fall); the risk of issuer default; issuer credit risk;
liquidity risk; and inflation risk. There are additional risks for funds
that invest in mortgage-backed and asset-backed securities including the
risk of issuer default; credit risk and inflation risk.

Non-diversified funds that focus on a relatively small number of
securities tend to be more volatile than diversified funds and the
market as a whole.

Passively managed funds hold a range of securities that, in the
aggregate, approximates the full Index in terms of key risk factors and
other characteristics. This may cause the fund to experience tracking
errors relative to performance of the index.

While the shares of ETFs are tradable on secondary markets, they may not
readily trade in all market conditions and may trade at significant
discounts in periods of market stress.
