iShares JPMorgan Emerging Markets Bond Fund passes USD1bn AUM


The iShares JPMorgan USD Emerging Market Bond Fund has surpassed USD1bn in assets under management.

The fund tracks a broad, diverse US dollar denominated emerging market debt benchmark, and is designed to give access to debt instruments from more than 30 emerging market countries in one trade.

The fund is one of iShares’ highest yielding funds and has seen over USD700m in inflows year to date, making it the fifth best performing European iShares product in terms of asset gathering in 2010.

iShares’ emerging market equity product, the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Fund, has seen the most net new assets of any iShares product so far this year, having raised over USD1.7bn in assets year to date.

David Gardner, head of sales for iShares EMEA, says: “Emerging markets have become one of the most attractive asset classes for investors in 2010. The iShares JPMorgan USD Emerging Markets Bond Fund is benefiting from this demand, offering investors access to sovereign and quasi-sovereign emerging market bonds including both fixed and floating rate instruments in a diversified, cost-effective and liquid way.”
