US Executive Order 13959

State Street Global Advisors intends to comply with Executive Order 13959, dated November 12, 2020 (the “Executive Order”), prohibiting transactions by United States persons in publicly traded securities of certain Chinese companies, as identified in the Executive Order and any updated guidance, amendments and annexes published by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Asset Controls (collectively, the “Sanctioned Securities”). As of January 8, 2021, State Street Global Advisors has divested, or is seeking to divest, from holdings in such Sanctioned Securities in any investment account or pooled vehicle we manage, including ETFs other than the Tracker Fund of Hong Kong (TraHK), in accordance with the Executive Order and published guidance. With respect to such investment accounts or pooled vehicles that track an index, we intend to continue to track such index, as revised by the index providers to be compliant with the Executive Order’s requirements.
