SPDR SFY ETF (ASX:SFY)
The SPDR SFY ETF is the only Australian ETF providing exposure to Australia’s top 50 listed companies, by market capitalisation. SFY provides a low-cost way to invest in the ASX’s top 50 companies through a single fund.
What does the SFY invest in?
The SPDR SFY ETF seeks to closely track the returns of the S&P/ASX 50 Index. The ETF is heavily weighted towards financials, with the next largest sector weightings being materials and health care. You could buy all of these companies yourself using a share brokerage account, but that would be a very expensive and time-consuming process. ETFs are an effective way to invest in an entire sector through a single trade.
What do investors use SFY for?
The SPDR SFY ETF could be used by investors to get exposure to a broad basket of Australia’s largest public companies. The top 50 Australian stocks actually represent 80% of the Australian equity market and generally have a high level of liquidity. These Australian companies are likely to grow their profits over time and have a track record of paying regular tax-effective dividends for their shareholders.
