iShares Citigroup Global Government Bond
Excerpt from report: The broad nature of this ETF makes it suitable to work well within core investment portfolios with a high degree of international diversification.

iShares FTSE/EPRA European Property
Excerpt from report: The FTSE/EPRA European Property Index has exhibited a high degree of correlation to international stock markets over the past decade; hence potential diversification benefits derived from adding this fund to one’s equity portfolio are limited.

iShares FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Asia Property Yield
Excerpt from report: This ETF is perhaps most suitable for investors with a favourable outlook for the Asian real estate market, and Hong Kong in particular as the index allocates 44% of its value to the super city.

iShares FTSE EPRA/NAREIT UK Property Yield
Excerpt from report: Property ETFs offer investors exposure to a traditionally illiquid asset class that has historically exhibited stock-like returns and bond-like income streams. However, investors should be aware that direct property investments behave quite different from investments via real estate funds

iShares FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Developed Property Yield
Excerpt from report: As the fund offers a current dividend yield of 2.6%, the ETF is suitable for investors seeking an income generating investment.
