Harness the power of factor investing

Helping investors achieve targeted outcomes

Smart beta ETFs can help investors achieve goals like reducing risk, generating income, or potentially enhancing returns. These funds primarily focus on factors - broad, persistent drivers of returns across equities and other asset classes. New technologies have made it easier to target factor exposures, which investors can access with iShares Edge ETFs.

Seek to outperform

Factors are broad, persistent drivers of return that can help explain why stocks and bonds behave the way they do.* Active managers have employed these strategies for decades – today, investors can access factors in low cost, transparent ETFs.

With iShares Edge Factors ETFs, investors can pursue a "build it" or "buy it" approach. Single factor ETFs target specific drivers of return, while multifactor ETFs combine four factors to potentially deliver above-market returns over the long term.
