BlackRock launches Aussie 'core' ETFs

InvestorDaily - Apr 28, 2016

BlackRock has launched five new 'core' ETFs for Australian investors, designed to provide low-cost access to the key exposures used by investors to construct diversified, long-term portfolios. The iShares Core range of ETFs comprises three equity and two fixed-income ETFs, BlackRock said in a statement. Head of iShares Australia Jon Howie said passive funds are becoming a starting point for many discussions on portfolio design. “We are seeing a shift in usage as passive investments increasingly move to the core of client portfolios and investors use them to build low cost and diversified solutions for the long term,” he said. The iShares Core ETFs can be combined to provide global multi-asset class exposure, including newly launched exposures to the MSCI World Investable Market Index, the statement said. The index captures large-, mid- and small-cap companies across 23 developed market countries, and covers around 99 per cent of the free float-adjusted market capitalisation in each of those countries.

It’s not surprising that Australian companies paying good dividends have been popular with yield-hungry investors. Companies like the big banks and Telstra have provided investors with dividend yield of around 6% to 7%. These stocks are now a big part of most income targeted portfolios.  A range of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) can also meet the needs of income-seeking investors. Growth and innovation in the ETF market now means investors can invest across a range of asset classes, including fixed-income. Using these strategies can provide investors with the opportunity to enhance the income in their portfolio.  [More]
