By Verdict Staff

iShares, the ETFs business of BlackRock, has expanded its factor ETF line-up by launching two iShares Enhanced International ETFs.

The two new ETFs include the iShares Enhanced International Large-Cap ETF (IEIL) and iShares Enhanced International Small-Cap ETF (IEIS).

The two ETFs aim to provide investors with long-term capital appreciation and will be managed using BlackRock research rather than tracking an index, according to iShares.

Additionally, the iShares Enhanced ETFs aims to provide competitive risk-adjusted returns compared to the large-cap or small-cap market.

Patrick Dunne, head of iShares global markets and investments, said: "The new iShares Enhanced International ETFs combine well-known factors and provide investors with easy access to multi-factor strategies based on BlackRock’s insights.

"They are of interest to investors who prefer a blending of factors in a single ETF to effectively maximize diversification and manage risk."
