GIISPDR S&P Global Infrastructure ETF
GII Fund Description
The SPDR S&P Global Infrastructure ETF tracks a market-cap-weighted index of 75 infrastructure companies, from developed and emerging markets, that operate in the energy, transportation, or utility sectors.
GII Factset Analytics Insight
GII tracks an index of 75 of the largest infrastructure firms globally, with constraints to ensure diversification between the energy, transportation, and utility sectors. The fund first selects the 15 largest emerging-market companies in its eligible universe, limited to 10 per sector. These stocks must trade on a developed-market exchange. GII then rounds out its portfolio with the largest eligible developed-market companies such that the final portfolio consists of 30 transportation companies, 30 utility companies, and 15 energy companies. The transport and utility sectors get 40% weight each, with energy getting 20%. Stocks are cap-weighted within each bucket.
GII's methodology limits exposure to utility companies that dominate our cap-weighted benchmark. The funds small basket means that positions can change significantly at each semi-annual rebalance. GII is lightly traded, and spreads can be quite large. Investors trading large blocks might do better by contacting a liquidity provider. GII charges a reasonable fee for a specialist fund, and tends to track its index well. Also consider IGF, from iShares, which tracks the same index.
