SPDR ETFs offer investors cost-effective1, flexible, transparent tools for managing currency exposures across equity and fixed income allocations. Built through partnerships with investors and index providers and fueled by our institutional expertise, our currency-hedged share classes allow investors to target their exposures.
For international investors, currency movements can be a major driver of returns across asset classes. This is especially true in a low-return environment where currency swings can overwhelm the returns of the underlying asset.
Hedging selected currency exposures allows investors to focus on the return drivers that they want to own and reduce the number of variables affecting portfolio performance.

Currency Risk is a form of risk that arises from the change in price of one currency against another. Whenever investors or companies have assets or business operations across national borders, they face currency risk if their positions are not hedged.
Currency Hedging involves taking offsetting positions intended to substantially offset currency losses on the hedged instrument. If the hedging position behaves differently than expected, the volatility of the strategy as a whole may increase and even exceed the volatility of the asset being hedged. There can be no assurance that the Fund’s hedging strategies will be effective.
