Given recent market volatility, Christian Obrist, Head of iShares for Australia recently told Livewire; 

“ETFs have already been battle-tested. If you look at the last 10 years, you've had many market stresses, and ETFs have most often come out proving that they function quite well." 

Following the removal of W-8BEN forms, recent changes that we have made, building globally diversified portfolios using iShares ETFs is now even easier for Australian investors and advisers. Importantly, distribution reinvestment plans are now available on all of these funds, and there are no changes to index exposures or management fees.

We hope that these changes will enable you to build better portfolios without the paperwork. If you would like to find out more please click here
