State Street Global Advisors launches ETFs providing income and inflation protection


State Street Global Advisors (SSgA) has launched the SPDR S&P Global Dividend ETF and the SPDR Barclays 1-10 Year TIPS ETF designed to provide investors with incme and inflation protection respectively.

The SPDR S&P Global Dividend ETF is designed to provide investors with precise exposure to both developed and emerging market dividend paying companies, through a globally diversified income portfolio strategy.
The SPDR Barclays 1-10 Year TIPS ETF is designed to provide investors with access to US Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS). Both funds began trading on NYSE Arca on 30 May 2013.
“In the sustained low rate environment, clients are grappling with how to meet their income objectives while staying within their own risk boundaries. Investors are embracing strongly diversified income products to provide a level of downside protection in their portfolios, as evidenced by the growth of the SPDR S&P Dividend ETF, the SPDR S&P Emerging Markets Dividend ETF and the SPDR S&P International Dividend ETF,” says James Ross, senior managing director and global head of SPDR exchange traded funds at SSgA. “The new SPDR S&P Global Dividend ETF adds to this suite of products and gives investors access to companies in both developed and emerging markets that have consistently delivered high yield dividends over the last ten years.”
The SPDR S&P Global Dividend ETF seeks to track the performance of the S&P Global Dividend Aristocrats Index, which measures the performance of the highest dividend yielding companies within the S&P Global Broad Market Index (BMI) that have followed a policy of increasing or stable dividends for at least 10 consecutive years. To ensure diversification, the weight for each index constituent is capped at three per cent, and the weight of each country and GICS Sector is capped at 25 per cent at each index rebalancing. The SPDR S&P Global Dividend ETF’s expense ratio is 0.40 per cent.
The SPDR Barclays 1-10 Year TIPS ETF seeks to track the performance of the Barclays 1-10 Year Government Inflation-linked Bond Index. The Index includes publicly issued TIPS that have at least 1 year remaining to maturity and less than 10 years on index rebalancing date, with an issue size equal to or in excess of USD500m. The SPDR Barclays 1-10 Year TIPS ETF’s expense ratio is 0.15 per cent.
