Accessing targeted asset classes using iShares ETFs
Asset allocation can play a large role in determining the overall potential return of a portfolio. This section covers the benefits of different asset classes — large-cap and small-cap, emerging and developed international markets, the fixed income landscape, and important categories like alternatives to help you carefully determine the asset class weighting that will help you strike the right balance between risk and return in your portfolios.
By investing across a variety of asset classes and across a range of geographies, sectors, and styles, you can help reduce the impact of a poor-performing single investment in a portfolio. The broad family of iShares ETFs makes it easy to help you diversify both across and within asset classes, with low-cost, efficient funds tracking established indexes in virtually every asset class.
Additionally, the iShares Portfolio Builder Funds are a convenient, single transaction way to access tailored portfolios that offer cost-effective, efficient and diversified solutions to meet specific needs based upon your clients’ risk tolerance (from growth to conservative) or an allocation to complete global or alternative portfolios. Both solutions are dynamically managed by professionals who constantly monitor and rebalance to the specific allocation parameters.
