What’s included in the New World Money motif?

We created the motif shortly after the IMF announced the yuan would be added to the SDRs. We rebalanced it when the specific weights each currency received were announced. At the time, the weights were as follows:

  • SPDR Barclays 1–3-Month T-Bill ETF (U.S dollar): 42%
  • CurrencyShares Euro Trust: 31%
  • CurrencyShares Chinese Renminbi Trust: 11%
  • CurrencyShares Japanese Yen Trust: 8%
  • CurrencyShares British Pound Sterling Trust: 8%.

Since we created the motif, prices have shifted those initial percentages. But we believe it still mirrors our expectations for SDRs, and we’ll look to rebalance at least once a year.
