Step by Step Guide to Manage Your Investment Through Our Unit Registry

After you’ve made an investment with State Street Global Advisors’ SPDR ETFs, it’s important you provide additional details to Link Market Services (Link). Link is the unit registry for all Australian SPDR ETF holdings. By logging into their Investor Centre you can update your personal details and set your communication preferences.

It’s fast and easy to do, and there are no costs involved to set up and use your Link account.

Below is a quick guide on how to access the Investor Center online.

How to Update Your Information

  • Login to Link’s Investor Centre at
  • Enter your email address and password in Portfolio Login.
  • If you do not have a Portfolio Login, please setup a portfolio by selecting Register Now and follow the prompts. Setting up a Portfolio Login allows you to easily manage your holdings across issuers who use Link as their registrar.

How to Register for a Portfolio

  •  Enter the Issuer name or code. That’s “State Street Global Advisors” or “SPDR” for all Australian SPDR ETFs or “SPY” for the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust.
  •  You will need your Holder Identification Number (HIN) or Security holder Reference Number (SRN).

A HIN is a unique number that is issued to you by the ASX when you become a client of a broker. You can find your HIN on your contract note, welcome, letter, holding statement and other shareholder communications. You should always ensure this information is kept in a safe place.

A HIN usually starts with the letter ‘X’, ‘I’ or ‘C’ and followed by a series of numbers, e.g. X0001234567.

  • Enter the postcode of your address used with your online broker or issuer sponsored account. If your registered address is overseas, select Outside Australia.
