With a broad range of core equity ETFs, SPDR offers the building blocks for cost-effective strategic asset allocation and tactical positions.1
The objective of the ETF is to track the equity market performance of developed and emerging markets. The MSCI ACWI IMI Index covers c. 9,000 securities across large, mid and small cap size segments and consists of c. 45 country indices, of which approximately half are developed and half are emerging markets.
SPDR Global Equity Brochure
The MSCI ACWI IMI Index covers approximately 99% of the investible market, making it an effective way for investors to gain true global equity exposure.
We offer a range of ETFs with global exposures based on the MSCI Modern Index Strategy.
The range gives investors access to both developed and emerging markets in the MSCI ACWI Investable Market Index (IMI) and the MSCI ACWI index, as well as the MSCI World Index for a purely developed exposure.
For more targeted global exposure based on market capitalisation, the MSCI World Small Cap Index can offer diversification, sector and factor tilting as well as broad global exposure.
Managed by the same team that runs the largest, most liquid ETF in the world, the SPDR S&P 500 UCITS ETF offers investors access to the largest companies in the US, covering approximately 80% of the available market capitalisation.4
The S&P 500 is regarded as a proxy for the US equity market and it is the only stock market benchmark serving as an economic indicator in The Conference Board Leading Economic Index. It has stood for US stock market performance in that context since 1968.4 And for European investors who would like to minimise currency risk, we offer a EUR-hedged share class available on German, Italian and Swiss exchanges.
We also offer ETFs that give access to mid and small cap US stocks, following the S&P 400 U.S. Mid Cap, and Russell 2000 U.S. Mid Cap indices.
We offer three ways to gain exposure to emerging markets through our UCITS ETF range.
The SPDR MSCI Emerging Markets UCITS ETF offers broad exposure to emerging markets in Asia, Europe, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East.
If you are looking to target emerging market exposure in Asia, including China, South Korea, Taiwan and India, then our EM Asia ETF focuses on this region.
Finally, our Emerging Markets Small Cap ETF offers exposure to smaller companies in emerging markets. This exposure can deliver diversification, lower correlations and the opportunity to invest in innovative smaller businesses around the world.
Our European exposure offers access to large and mid-cap companies that make up the broad MSCI Europe Index and then two subsets of this index for more focussed exposure.
The MSCI EMU Index (European Economic and Monetary Union) captures large and mid-cap representation across the 10 developed Markets countries in the EMU. These include Austria, Belgium. Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain.
The MSCI Europe Small Cap Index offers access to smaller companies across 15 developed market countries in Europe. This exposure can offer diversification and lower correlations to a portfolio.
For single country exposure outside of the US, we offer access to UK and Japanese equities through a variety of options.
For UK exposure: The FTSE UK All Share represents over 98% of UK capitalisation and aggregates the FTSE 100, FTSE 250 and FTSE Small Cap indices. SPDR has two share classes offering different income treatment, either distributing or accumulating.
For Japan exposure: The MSCI Japan Index is designed to reflect the large and mid-cap segments of the Japanese market. We also offer a EUR currency-hedged exposure in order to access the returns of the Japanese market while mitigating currency risk.

Investing in foreign domiciled securities may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, withholding taxes, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability in other nations.
Investments in emerging or developing markets may be more volatile and less liquid than investing in developed markets and may involve exposure to economic structures that are generally less diverse and mature and to political systems which have less stability than those of more developed countries.
Investments in small-sized companies may involve greater risks than in those of larger, better known companies.
Investments in mid-sized companies may involve greater risks than in those of larger, better known companies, but may be less volatile than investments in smaller companies.
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.
