A Standard & Poor's Depositary Receipt, or SPDR, is a type of exchange traded fund that began trading on the American Stock Exchange (AMEX) in 1993 when State Street Global Advisors' investment management group first issued shares of the SPDR 500 Trust (SPY). Sometimes called "spiders," SPY is an ETF based on the S&P 500 Index, and each share represents an ownership interest in the 500 stocks in the S&P 500. Today, there are a number of other SPDR funds available to investors; while some track stocks based on market value, others are focused on specific market sectors.
SPDR exchange traded funds are issued by State Street Global Advisors and are designed to track indexes or benchmarks.
