Flexible ways of using the iShares Core Series

Many find the best way to achieve long-term goals is through a blend of both active and passive strategies. Choose as many funds as needed from iShares Core Series to put high-quality, low-cost exposures at the heart of your client’s portfolio and retain fee budget for enhanced return opportunities.



Design your own portfolio
The iShares Core Series offers a range of the most popular market exposures, at a compelling price. Average costs of 0.17% also means, there is often enough left in a client’s fee budget to realise additional-return-seeking opportunities.


Enhance an existing portfolio
Investors can use the iShares Core Series to express an investment view and complement their existing portfolio. Whether this is access to the Japanese equity market, emerging markets or corporate bonds, adding a fund from the Core range can provide additional market diversification at a low cost.


Rebuild an existing portfolio
For those asset classes where you have less conviction in the ability of active management to provide consistent outperformance, replacing these exposures with funds from the iShares Core Series may be efficient. This preserves fee budget for those asset classes where you and your clients believe there is greater scope for outperformance.
