iShares expands fixed income ETF range

Exchange traded funds provider iShares has launched four corporate bond ETFs and five accumulating versions of its largest core equity benchmarks on the London Stock Exchange.

There are now 129 iShares listed on the LSE and the launch takes the range of fixed income funds to 40 in Europe.

The accumulating funds which include the iShares MSCI emerging markets, S&P 500, MSCI world, MSCI Europe and MSCI Japan are based on five of iShares’ core equity benchmarks which are already available in the distributing form, paying investors dividend income on a periodic basis.

They will automatically reinvest any dividend income received back into the fund, rather than paying it to investors.

iShares Europe head of product development for Axel Lomholt says: “iShares has developed the leading range of fixed income products in the market by a significant margin and these launches are a reflection not only of iShares product expertise but also our client driven approach to product development.

“The accumulating funds underline our strength in core equities and offer investors more choice when managing their income stream.”
