What does the SSO invest in?

The SSO ETF aims to track the S&P/ASX Small Ordinaries Index, which is made up of the companies included in the S&P/ASX 300, but not in the S&P/ASX 100. 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 SSO for?

The SPDR SSO ETF could be used to invest in Australian companies outside the top 100, which are likely to grow their profits over time. Navigating away from the largest ASX companies removes a lot of the exposure to the financial sector and could diversify your Australian portfolio allocation.

Best ETFs warnings

The following warnings are applied by our team, based on quantitative metrics and our internal methodology. These risks are not exhaustive and therefore they should not be relied upon. Always read the PDS of the function and speak to your financial adviser before acting on this information.

Sometimes ETFs and other types of funds will invest in assets or asset classes that are difficult to transact in. When something is difficult — or impossible — to buy and sell quickly (e.g. in one or two days) and at a fair price, we say that it is an “illiquid” investment.

Tax Domicile

When a fund/ETF has a “domicile” of Australia it means it is a registered fund in Australia for tax purposes.

Registry

Link Market Services is the second-largest share registry in Australia and operates from offices in 11 countries throughout Australasia, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Europe.
