IShares Fixed Income ETFs Are First To Be Analyzed On Bloomberg Yield And Spread Analysis Tool

In July 2012, iShares predicted that the global fixed income ETF market will exceed $2 trillion in the next decade. According to BlackRock’s ETP Landscape Report, fixed income ETFs have attracted $60.7 billion in net new assets globally year-to-date through October 2012, which represents 32% of all ETF inflows globally.

Matt Tucker said, “We hope that by providing tools that treat iShares fixed income ETFs like a bond that more fixed income investors will adopt fixed income ETFs.”
