Lower your investment fees

For investors who are looking to lower fees in their portfolio, or get started at a low cost, broad index exchange traded funds (ETFs) can help. iShares Core ETFs are a low cost and tax-efficient way to help build a strong foundation for a portfolio.

  • iShares Core ETFs cost about 1/10th as much as a typical mutual fund and can help build a portfolio of broad stock and bond index funds.1
  • With just a few iShares Core ETFs, investors can easily design a diversified portfolio across asset classes.

You should work with a financial advisor before making investment decisions.
