In November 2004, State Street Global Advisors launched SPDR GLD®, the first US gold-backed ETF. GLD’s arrival made it convenient and cost effective for investors to have gold exposure in their portfolios. We’ve built a dedicated team of SPDR gold strategists to help investors understand how gold can fit in a portfolio, and launched GLDM® in 2018 in response to growing investor need for a low-cost, gold-backed ETF option.
