SSGA is Teaming Up With Actress Elizabeth Banks

At several of their properties including, the Santa Monica Pier and iFly, an indoor skydiving facility, Elizabeth and Greg discuss what it takes to succeed in a unique area of the real estate market. The series will continue with episodes featuring The New York Times, Dunkin’ Donuts and Samuel Adams (Boston Beer Company inc.) and will be available on podcast platforms every other Wednesday for the next two months.

“It was a great experience teaming up with State Street Global Advisors to create Crazy Enough to Work,” said Elizabeth Banks. “The trials and successes of these often overlooked mid-sized companies were eye-opening. As a fellow entrepreneur, I found it exciting to go behind the scenes and help these organizations tell their stories to the world.”

Launched on May 4, 1995, the SPDR S&P MIDCAP 400 ETF was the first ETF to provide investors with access to mid-cap stocks, one of the largest segments of the US equity market. Based on Yahoo! Finance performance numbers, MDY is up 3.32% year-to-date and 13.30% the past year.

Over the past decade, MDY has outperformed 88 percent of its Morningstar mid-cap blend peer group with a post-tax 10-year annualized return of 9.94 percent. This performance places MDY in the top quintile of all active and index mid-cap funds.
