iShares stayed domestic with the third ETF, the MSCI USA Index Fund, which is the cheapest of the three. The fund has an expense of 15 bps.

All three funds are managed by Diane Hsiung and Greg Savage. BlackRock Fund Advisors is the investment advisor. State Street Bank and Trust Company is the administrator, custodian and transfer agent for the three ETFs, according to the filings.
