SPDR® S&P® US Dividend Aristocrats UCITS ETF

Fund Objective

Important Risk Information

Risk associated with equity investing include stock values which may fluctuate in response to the activities of individual companies and general market and economic conditions.

ETFs trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk, fluctuate in market value and may trade at prices above or below the ETFs net asset value. Brokerage commissions and ETF expenses will reduce returns.

Investing in foreign domiciled securities may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, withholding taxes, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability in other nations.
