How to Trade ETFs

Investing in SPDR ETFs is easy. Investors can buy or sell SPDR ETFs as they do ordinary shares.  

Investing Directly through the Stock Market

Individual investors may buy and sell units of HK listed State Street SPDR ETFs on the SEHK through brokers in the same way as they may trade shares in companies listed on the SEHK. Investors will need to pay brokers' commissions, trading fee and other levies associated with ETF dealings on the SEHK. These amounts are subject to the investor's individual agreement with, and paid directly by the investor to, the investor's broker or other service providers of the investor. 

SPDR ETF shares can also be traded through online brokers and many other platforms (such as pension fund products) that offer the opportunity to trade shares on the stock market. For more information, please consult your stockbroker or financial advisor.

We Built the First US ETF

We pioneered the first US ETF as a simple, cost effective means of investing in the performance of market indices, with all the benefits of listed market liquidity.

With the American Stock Exchange, we developed and launched the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (Arca NYSE: SPY), the first of its kind in the US, and globally. Since then we have achieved multiple firsts, including launching the first listed tracker fund for Hong Kong, The Tracker Fund of Hong Kong (SEHK: 2800). 

Important Risk Information

Asset Allocation is a method of diversification which positions assets among major investment categories. Asset Allocation may be used in an effort to manage risk and enhance returns.  It does not, however, guarantee a profit or protect against loss. Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss.
