BlackRock Canada to enter mutual fund space with ETF-based portfolios series


BlackRock Asset Management Canada has filed a preliminary prospectus for a series of balanced mutual funds – BlackRock Strategic Portfolios Series built with iShares ETFs.

This initiative will expand BlackRock’s roster of financial products and respond to growing client demand in Canada.
Coupled with its iShares ETF business, the integrated retail platform of BlackRock Canada’s mutual fund strategies is designed to meet the evolving needs of Canadian investors.
"Our customers have asked us to bring the asset allocation capability of the world’s largest asset manager to mutual funds leveraging our industry-leading iShares ETFs, and we have delivered," says Noel Archard, head of BlackRock Canada. "Advisors and other investors want simple investment options that have the diversification, efficiency and transparency they need in today’s markets."
