Dubai, May 3, 2010
iShares, a global leader in exchange traded funds (ETFs), has updated its website for DIFC financial professionals.
As the primary source of information for financial professionals, the iShares website provides detailed fund information on over 340 iShares’ products throughout Europe and the US, including access to the most relevant and updated iShares documents covering financial analysis, brochures and fact sheets.
The most significant addition to the website is access to daily fund fact sheets, holdings and performance data. Additionally, a suite of flexible tools has been added that include performance charts, index return charts and a fund search capability. These three tools examine an iShares ETF relationship to its benchmark, research more than 150 worldwide indices and dynamically filter iShares ETFs by a wide range of criteria, including asset class and holding exposure.
“We’re excited about being able to provide DIFC financial professionals the most up-to-date and relevant information for their ETF needs on a web-based platform,” said Norah Ali Alyusuf, vice president of BlackRock.
With updates on a regular basis and in-depth information on the world of ETFs, the iShares DIFC Professional website acts as the one-stop-shop for users and equips them with the fundamentals of ETFs and relevant information that will play a significant role on a regional and global level, added Ali Alyusuf.-TradeArabia News Service
