BlackRock Asset Management has launched an interactive toolkit that offers a collection of ETF materials and tips.

There are two versions, one tailored for advisor and the other for individual investors.

“The advisor-version of the toolkit is designed as a…reference guide [that will] increase advisors’ expertise of ETFs” and help them craft conversations about the funds, says Keith VanOrden, head of iShares Retail Business Development at BlackRock Canada.
