SPDR ETFs, the exchange traded funds (ETF) platform of State Street Global Advisors (SSgA), has cross-listed new ETFs on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) -continued

March 5, 2012--SPDR ETFs, the exchange traded funds (ETF) platform of State Street Global Advisors (SSgA), has cross-listed new ETFs on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) including SPDR S&P Euro Dividend Aristocrats ETF (EUDC (GBP), EUDI (EUR), SPDR S&P UK Dividend Aristocrats ETF (UKDV) and SPDR FTSE UK All Share ETF (FTAL).
Like all SPDR ETFs globally, these new products are physically replicated.

With the increasing need for income in a low interest rate environment, dividend ETFs are potentially an attractive option for investors looking for diversified access to dividend-paying stocks. The two new dividend ETFs join the recently launched SPDR S&P US Dividend Aristocrats ETF, which gained over $350 million* in assets since its launch last October.
