State Street will close 19 of its US-listed ETFs in August, due to a lack of investor interest. The 19 funds to be closed gathered roughly US$600 million total assets, representing less 0.1% of the AUM in locked up in State Street ETFs globally.

The largest ETF being closed is the SPDR S&P International Health Care Sector ETF (IRY), which has amassed only $198m despite being listed almost 10 years ago.
