Interesting to see how SPDR Straits Times Index ETF performed for the financial year (FY) ended 30 June 2016. I did a quick comparison of key indicators between FY 2016 against FY 2015.
|Indicators||FY 2016||FY 2015||Change (%)|
|Net Asset Value (NAV)||$2.886||$3.362||– 14.1|
|Net (losses)/gains on investments||($43,265,152)||$10,552,266||-510.0|
|Total (deficit)/return for year||($29,884,972)||$21,561,247
|Distributions for year per unit||$0.100||$0.093||+7.5|
Net asset value per unit dropped 14.1% from $3.362 to $2.886 on 30 June 2016. Current NAV was $2.92 on 3 October 2016.
During the year, STI ETF made net losses in investments (-$43.2 million). The previous year was net gains on investments ($10.5 million).
Total return for the year swung from net profits to net losses from one year to the next. Total deficit for the year was $29.8 million.
Distributions per unit for the FY 2016 went up 7.5% to $0.10.
SPDR STI ETF did poorly for the year ended 30 June 2016. This period was a terrible one year for investments in Singapore equities.
