BlackRock? Isn’t that iShares? Are those new unit trust index funds?

    Hi Garrett,

    Blackrock bought over iShares from Barclays. They still have their core fund management business of actively managed funds.

I wonder if their track record is better compared to those fund managers we are already familiar with.

    Hi Daniel,

    Remember that past performance is not indicative of future performance. 🙂

    But they do have some interesting sector funds that have few alternatives (to the retail investors) in the market.
