Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund

Founding Date

The Energy Select Sector SPDR® Fund offers exposure to the U.S. energy industry, including many of the world’s largest oil producers. It seeks to track the investment results of the Energy Select Sector Index, which provides an effective representation of the energy sector of the S&P 500 Index. XLE is impressive in terms of both cost efficiency and liquidity, thereby allowing investors to take strategic or tactical positions at a more targeted level than traditional style based investing. XLE can be potentially useful as a tactical overlay for those looking to shift exposure towards a sector that thrives when oil prices show strength.
