The listing takes the total number of ETFs launched by SPDR in Europe to 28 in the past 12 months.

All four are physically backed and are designed around key UK benchmarks which investors use as building blocks for a diversified fixed income portfolio.

Eleanor Hope-Bell, head of intermediary sales UK at State Street Global Advisers (SPDR’s parent company), said: "Fixed income ETFs provide investors with the tools they need to build fixed income portfolios that not only aim to support their long-term investment goals, but also offer the flexibility and liquidity needed to respond quickly to shifts in the bond markets.

"By virtue of trading on exchanges and their subsequent relative pricing transparency and liquidity, our new fixed income SPDR ERFs can be used to adjust portfolios quickly in response to inflation interest rates and shifts in the economy overall."

The ETFs are the SPDR Barclays Capital Sterling Corporate Bond ETF, Capital UK Gilt ETF, `1-5 Year Gilt ETF and 15+ Year Gilt ETF.

The range also listed in Germany last week.
