How to Trade ETFs

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

Investing Through the Stock Market

Individual investors may buy and sell units of Singapore listed State Street SPDR ETFs on the SGX-ST through brokers in the same way as they may trade shares in companies listed on the SGX-ST. Investors will need to pay brokers' commissions, clearing fees and other costs associated with ETF dealings on the SGX-ST. These amounts are subject to the investor's individual agreement with, and paid directly by the investor to, the investor's broker, the CDP and other service providers of the investor. 

SPDR ETF shares can also be traded through online brokers and many other platforms that offer the opportunity to trade shares on the stock market.For more information, please consult your broker or financial advisor.

We Built the First US ETF

We created 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 ETF in Singapore, SPDR® Straits Times Index ETF (ES3).
