Nine exchange traded funds (ETFs) from State Street are getting a makeover, just in time for the new year.

Depending on the fund, they will get new names, new indexes, new, lower, expense ratios – or all of the above.

The seven style-box ETFs will receive new ticker symbols, while the two bond ETFs will retain their current symbols, reports Ron Rowland for Invest With An Edge. [What You Should Know About ETF Expenses.]

Here’s the rundown:

  • SPDR S&P 500 Growth ETF (NYSEArca: SPYG): Index changes from Dow to S&P; current expense ratio of 0.20% will stay the same
  • SPDR S&P 500 Value ETF (NYSEArca: SPYV): Index changes from Dow to S&P; expense ratio drops from 0.21% to 0.20%.
