iShares

iShares is the brand name for the world's largest range of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), which is marketed and managed by BlackRock. iShares funds are available to institutional investors and private investors and combine the advantages of stocks with the benefits of index funds: iShares can be bought and sold like any other shares listed on a stock exchange and provide instant exposure to an entire index through a single security.
