Eight new SPDR ETFs launched on Xetra


Eight new exchange traded index funds issued by SPDR (State Street Global Advisors) have been tradable on Xetra since Wednesday. The funds comprise seven equity-index ETFs and one bond-index ETF.

The five new SPDR ETFs on the MSCI Emerging Markets Index Series enable investors to participate in the performance of companies from emerging markets. While three ETFs are focused on Asia, Europe and Latin America, two ETFs track the performance of companies from all emerging-market regions. The SPDR MSCI Emerging Markets Small Cap ETF includes small companies from emerging markets around the world.

Two further equity index ETFs issued by SPDR offer investors the chance to invest in the MSCI ACWI (All Country World Index) and MSCI ACWI IMI (All Country World Investable Market Index). Both indices aim to track the performance of equities from industrialised countries as well as emerging markets. The MSCI ACWI All Country World Index comprises around 2,400 companies, the MSCI ACWI All Country World Investable Market Index around 9,000 companies from 45 countries, of which 24 are industrialised countries and 21 emerging markets.

The equities are weighted on the basis of free-float market capitalisation in all seven SPDR Equity index ETFs.

The SPDR Barclays Capital Emerging Market Local Bond ETF enables investors to participate in the performance of the Barclays Capital Emerging Markets Local Currency Liquid Government Index. The aim of this index is to track, as comprehensively as possible, the performance of bonds from emerging-market countries with liquid local currencies. To be accepted in the index, a minimum of one billion US dollars must already have been invested in the relevant bond. Any single country’s bond market accounts for a maximum 10 percent of the index.
