In the Spotlight – iShares
ETFs can help change the way you manage your investments. ETFs combine the benefits of investment funds and shares, offering you diversified, efficient, cost-effective and transparent access to the world’s investment markets. Like all investments, the value of ETFs can go down as well as up, so you could lose money.
Institutional investors – such as pension funds, government agencies and private banks have been using ETFs for many years. Now, individual investors like you are able to access the same investment opportunities as these sophisticated and demanding investors – same fund, same costs, and same performance.
iShares – the world’s no.1 ETF provider
iShares® is the world’s largest ETF provider with more than $1 trillion in assets under management globally*.

It’s important to understand that ETFs are not guaranteed products – just like any investment in the stock or bond market, your initial investment is subject to loss. The value of your investment and income from it will fluctuate and your initial investment is not guaranteed.
