State Street Global Advisors’ New Short-Term TIPS SPDR ETF Seeks To Offer Inflation Protection For A Rising Rate Environment

State Street Global Advisors (SSgA), the asset management arm of State Street Corporation (NYSE:STT) today announced the SPDR Barclays 0-5 Year TIPS ETF (Symbol: SIPE) began trading on the NYSE Arca on February 27, 2014. The SPDR Barclays 0-5 Year TIPS ETF gives investors a potential opportunity to protect their portfolios from inflation and diversify their fixed income allocations to prepare for rising interest rates. It adds to investors’ options in the SPDR fixed-income product suite in a short-term TIPs offering.

“With rising rates on the horizon, investors are increasingly relying on ETFs to manage duration risk within their fixed-income allocations,” continued Ross. “The new SPDR Barclays 0-5 Year TIPS ETF seeks to offer these investors a hedge against inflation that’s less sensitive to interest rate changes than longer duration TIPS funds.”

The SPDR Barclays 0-5 Year TIPS ETF seeks to track the performance of the Barclays 0-5 Year Government Inflation-linked Bond Index, which includes publicly issued Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS), that have less than five years remaining to maturity and an issue size of at least $500 million. It has an expense ratio of 0.15 percent.

SSgA manages more than $413 Billion in SPDR ETF assets worldwide (as of December 31, 2013)* and is one of the largest ETF providers globally.
