  • Performance Inception Date:

Past Performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. Performance returns for periods of less than one year are not annualised and have been calculated based on changes in the net asset value of the Fund rather than the last quoted price. The Total Return is the sum of the Growth (or Price) Return and Distribution Return and is shown net of management fees and costs but does not reflect the brokerage fees or the bid/ask spread that investors pay to buy and sell ETF securities on the Australian Securities Exchange. Distributions are assumed to be reinvested under the Dividend Reinvestment Program (DRP). Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate, so you may have a gain or loss when units are sold. Current performance may be higher or lower than that quoted. The index returns are unmanaged and do not reflect the deduction of any fees or expenses. The index returns reflect all items of income, gain and loss and the reinvestment of dividends and other income.

Quality Breakdown

Quality Breakdown

Barclays uses the "middle rating" of Moody's, S&P, and Fitch to determine a security's index classification. If only two of the agencies rate a security, then the most conservative (lowest) rating will be used. If only one rating agency rates a security, that one rating will be used. Where there are no security level ratings, an issuer rating may be used to determine index classification. Barclays Index breakdowns are grouped into larger categories. For example, AAA+ and AAA are listed as Aaa; AA1, AA2, and AA3 are listed as Aa, etc.

The tables above show historical distributions from the funds. Historical distributions are no indication of future distributable income.

All SPDR ETFs, aside from the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust and the SPDR® S&P®/ASX 200 Listed Property Fund are managed on an accumulation basis, with income reinvested into investable securities. This means that subsequent application and redemption activity could distort the nature and size of distributions. The proportion of total return attributable to income versus capital growth may differ from the relevant index.

The distribution components are as calculated and reported to the Australian Securities Exchange ("ASX") at the time of each distribution. The year end components reported to investors in their annual tax statements, once all year end information is finalised, may be different.

The ability of the Funds to pay distributions depends on, among other things, the dividends and distributions declared and paid by the companies whose securities are held by the Funds. There can be no assurance that such securities will pay dividends or other earnings. For further information on distributions, including tax implications, please refer to the relevant fund PDS. However, the information contained therein is not tax advice and investors should obtain their own professional tax and or financial advice.
