iShares has launched two longer duration fixed income exchange-traded funds to fully complete its curve exposure. They are the iShares 10+ Year Credit Bond Fund and the iShares 10+ Year Government/Credit Bond Fund.

“The two new iShares bond funds complement the existing iShares fixed income product line and provide investors with targeted exposure to the long end of the yield curve in the government and credit markets,” said Matt Tucker, director of U.S. fixed income strategy at BlackRock. “These new funds will provide institutional investors and individual investors and their financial advisers additional flexibility in tailoring their fixed income portfolios in the current market environment.”
