How to Invest

Investing in exchange traded funds (ETFs) is easy. Investors may buy and sell units of SPDR ETFs as they do ordinary shares – by contacting an investment professional such as a Stockbroker or Financial Adviser, or by trading through an Online Broker.


Investing Through the ASX


Investing Directly Through the Stock Market

Buying and selling SPDR ETFs works in the same way as shares, as they:

  • can be bought and sold anytime during ASX trading hours
  • are allocated an ASX code, or Ticker
  • have no minimum investment, but there might be a small amount which is defined by your broker
  • can be traded using the same order types/strategies (e.g. stop, market and limit orders)
  • are priced intraday, meaning you can view the price movements just as you would with shares

Investors will need to pay brokers' commissions, trading fee and other levies associated with ETF trading. These amounts will vary and are paid directly by the investor to the broker or other service providers.
