Investing in exchange traded funds (ETFs) is easy. Investors may buy and sell units of SPDR ETFs as they do ordinary shares – by contacting an investment professional such as a Stockbroker or Financial Adviser, or by trading through an Online Broker.
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, 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
FOR PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY
ETFs trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk, fluctuate in market value and may trade at prices above or below the ETFs' net asset value. Brokerage commissions and ETF expenses will reduce returns.
Commodities and commodity-index linked securities may be affected by changes in overall market movements, changes in interest rates, and other factors such as weather, disease, embargoes, or political and regulatory developments, as well as trading activity of speculators and arbitrageurs in the underlying commodities.
Frequent trading of ETFs could significantly increase commissions and other costs such that they may offset any savings from low fees or costs.
Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.
Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss.
Investing in commodities entails significant risk and is not appropriate for all investors.
