Research Report On September 2, 2013, State Street Corp.'s asset management business, State Street Global Advisors (SSGA), announced that its exchange traded funds (ETFs) platform, SPDR ETFs, has listed three short duration bond ETFs on the London Stock Exchange and Deutsche Börse. According to SSGA, the three new physically-backed ETFs extend the fixed income family available from SPDR ETFs. Commenting on the update, Antoine Lesne, Fixed Income Portfolio Strategist at SSGA, said, "Over the last three decades, fixed income markets have enjoyed an enviable rally. Despite some of the more significant corrections of the mid-to-late 1990s, surfing the yield curve wave has, for the most part, been very profitable for investors. However, now, with government bond yields at all-time lows, many fixed income investors are reviewing the sources of return in their bond allocations. More specific allocations to short-dated bond exposures via these three new ETFs may offer the potential to deliver better risk- adjusted returns than their all-maturity counterparts and help lower the negative impact of a steepening yield curve."
