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.

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.


Purchase Information

Purchase Information

SPDR ETFs are flexible and easy to trade. Investors buy and sell them like shares, typically through a stock broker. Investors can also employ traditional share trading techniques, including stop orders, limit orders and margin purchases (if available).

To purchase a SPDR fund, please consult your stock broker or financial adviser.


Fund Footnotes

Risk associated with equity investing include stock values which may fluctuate in response to the activities of individual companies and general market and economic conditions.

Investing in foreign domiciled securities may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, withholding taxes, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability in other nations.

Investments in emerging or developing markets may be more volatile and less liquid than investing in developed markets and may involve exposure to economic structures that are generally less diverse and mature and to political systems which have less stability than those of more developed countries.

Companies with large market capitalizations go in and out of favor based on market and economic conditions. Larger companies tend to be less volatile than companies with smaller market capitalizations. In exchange for this potentially lower risk, the value of the security may not rise as much as companies with smaller market capitalizations.

Currency Risk is a form of risk that arises from the change in price of one currency against another. Whenever investors or companies have assets or business operations across national borders, they face currency risk if their positions are not hedged. Currency Hedging involves taking offsetting positions to reduce exposure to different currencies. These currency exchange contracts may reduce or eliminate some or all of the benefit that an investment may experience from favorable currency fluctuations.
