We’re constantly adding new ETFs to BUX Zero and today we’d like to introduce you to the latest batch.
These ETFs are managed by BlackRock, the largest asset manager in the world. They offer many different ETFs based around a particular theme, and we’ve selected four of them for you.
All four are part of the STOXX 600 index family, which is a widely-supported European index containing 600 of the leading stocks on the continent.
Below, you’ll find a brief description of each ETF. We’ll also list a few of the most well-known companies included, as well as the total return of the ETF year to date. Of course, future returns aren’t guaranteed and you shouldn’t necessarily base your decisions on past results. We’ll also show you the total size of the fund (why is this important?) Finally, you’ll see the number of companies that are included in the underlying index. If you’re still looking for more information, we’ve added a link to BlackRock’s ETF page.
