“We are extremely proud to win the award for Best Fund Provider – Equity ETF. At iShares, our mission is to champion investor progress for millions by relentlessly pursuing better ways to invest. We do this by offering the best quality and selection of investments for the greatest number of people at the best possible value. This year in Asia Pacific, we continued this mission with the launch of various innovative equity ETFs, including the largest-ever equity ETF launch in Singapore and the largest-ever sustainable equity ETF launch in Japan.”


“With India becoming a more sizeable growth engine for emerging markets, Indian equity ETFs took in a net US$1.5 billion in July, the second-highest monthly figure for India on record, beaten only by the US$2.3 billion witnessed in March of this year,” said Twinkle Sparta, associate editor, Asian Private Banker.

“As of end-September, iShares MSCI India ETF has US US$6.0 billion in AUM and a +7% YTD performance. The firm uses a cross-disciplinary structure comprising portfolio managers, index strategists, and research and trading professionals. The portfolio managers’ primary focus is on managing index portfolios. The index strategy, research and trading teams enable the portfolio managers to focus on making hundreds of investment decisions annually to ensure they deliver performance as expected by their clients.

“In addition, ETF portfolio management teams work closely with BlackRock’s Risk & Quantitative Analysis Group to ensure portfolio risks are consistent across mandates and each portfolio’s formal risk guidelines.”
