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 (net of withholding tax) and other 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 tables above show historical distributions from the funds. Historical distributions are no indication of future distributable income.
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.
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.
1“Best-in-class” is an industry term referring to an investment approach that selects companies with high ESG scores relative to their industry/sector peers.
The returns on a portfolio of securities which exclude companies that do not meet the portfolio's specified ESG criteria may trail the returns on a portfolio of securities which include such companies. A portfolio's ESG criteria may result in the portfolio investing in industry sectors or securities which underperform the market as a whole.

You should seek professional advice and consider the product disclosure document and target market determination, available at www.ssga.com/au, before deciding whether to acquire or continue to hold units in an ETF. This material should not be considered a solicitation to buy or sell a security. ETFs trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk, fluctuate in market value and may trade at prices above or below the ETF's net asset value. ETFs typically invest by sampling an index, holding 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. Investing involves risk including the risk of loss of principal. Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss. Holdings and sectors shown are as of the date indicated and are subject to change. This information should not be considered a recommendation to invest in a particular sector or to buy or sell any security shown. It is not known whether the sectors or securities shown will be profitable in the future. Sector ETF products are also subject to sector risk and non-diversification risk, which generally results in greater price fluctuations than the overall market.
