The SPDR® S&P®/ASX 50 Fund was among the first ETFs launched in Australia back in 2001, alongside the SPDR® S&P®/ASX 200 Fund, and is now $803 million in assets under management.

Meaghan Victor, head of intermediary for Asia Pacific at State Street Global Advisors, said: “Today’s announcement makes investing in ETFs more affordable for a broad range of investors, from those just starting out to the more experienced seeking more from their core portfolio.

“As the core is typically the largest part of a portfolio, it is important to use cost-effective solutions over the long term. When constructing a portfolio, investors shouldn’t consider the fee of one ETF in isolation. With a number of our core exposures to be priced at 10 basis points or less, investors will have greater choice when constructing a cost-effective diversified portfolio.

“These fee changes demonstrate our commitment to the democratisation of investing by delivering cost-effective institutional quality investment solutions to all investors.”

The firm previously announced cuts to six other ETFs in November: SPDR S&P/ASX 200, SPDR S&P/ASX 200 ESG, SPDR MSCI Australia Select High Dividend Yield, SPDR S&P Global Dividend, SPDR MSCI World Quality Mix, and SPDR S&P/ASX Australian Government Bond.
