Diversifying into the US with SPDR ETFs
Previously, the complexity of investing offshore may have deterred Australian investors and SMSFs from accessing the diversification benefits and growth potential of the US market. The world’s most widely traded ETF1, SPDR S&P 500® ETF (SPY) gives investors the opportunity to tap into the world’s economic powerhouse. It tracks the performance of America’s top 500 companies.
SPY seeks to provide investment results that, before expenses, correspond to the performance of America’s largest blue-chips through the S&P 500 Index. It gives investors exposure to 500 US stocks, across 24 industry groups, in one single investment.
We Built the First US ETF
We pioneered ETFs as a simple, cost effective means of investing in the performance of market indices, with all the benefits of listed market liquidity.
With the American Stock Exchange, we developed and launched the SPDR S&P 500® ETF, the first of its kind in the US. Each new member of the SPDR ETF family reflects our intimate knowledge of the ETF market and over 35 years of indexing experience.
As with our first ETF, all our ETFs are physically backed to closely replicate the performance of each index.
