SSgA lists nine SPDR ETFs on SIX


State Street Global Advisors (SSgA) has cross-listed a further nine SPDR exchange-traded funds on SIX, the Swiss stock exchange.

The new SPDR ETF listings include four recently launched short duration SPDR fixed income ETFs: SPDR Barclays 0-3 Year US Corporate Bond UCITS ETF, SPDR Barclays 0-3 Year Euro Corporate Bond UCITS ETF, SPDR Barclays 0-5 Year US High Yield Bond UCITS ETF, and SPDR Barclays 1-3 Year US Treasury Bond UCITS ETF.
These funds will provide investors a way of dealing with duration risk via short-maturity bonds, which may improve risk-adjusted returns and lower the overall sensitivity of a portfolio to changes in interest rates.
SSgA has cross-listed a further two dividend paying UCITS ETFs: the SPDR S&P Global Dividend Aristocrats UCITS ETF and the SPDR S&P Pan Asia Dividend Aristocrats UCITS ETF.
It also listed the SPDR MSCI EMU UCITS ETF and the SPDR MSCI World Small Cap UCITS ETF, which gives investors exposure to 24 countries and over 4,000 stocks spanning the entire small cap segment of developed markets, and the SPDR MSCI EM Beyond BRIC UCITS ETF which provides investors with greater country diversification than broad emerging markets indices and access to some of the smaller developing emerging market economies.
Rochus Appert, head of IGB, Switzerland, says: “We are delighted to announce the cross-listings of an additional nine SPDR ETFs on SIX. In a highly competitive and growing market, we recognise the need to make available a suitable and diverse range of ETFs that will support current client demands and offer solutions in the ever changing European marketplace. It is important for us to identify the right funds to give investors the optimal vehicles to precisely match their portfolio strategies.”
