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.

Prior to the July 2016 month end the published Since Inception performance figure in the table above was calculated from 31 August 2001, and after this date it was calculated from 24 August 2001.

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.


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.

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.

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.
