Stock Data: SEC Filings | Yahoo! Quote
  • SEC Fund Filings by CIK

  • Background:
    As of December 31, 2013, iShares had $914 billion AUM.

    During the fourth quarter of 2012, iShares launched the Core Series.

    In October 2012, BlackRock consolidated the iShares and BlackRock sales organizations into one operation.

    On June 11, 2009, Barclays agreed to sell the whole of Barclays Global Investors, including its giant iShares ETF business, to BlackRock [profile] in a cash and stock transaction valued at about $13.5 billion. That offer followed a separate, $4.4-billion private equity bid for iShares alone. BlackRock won, though, and the deal closed on December 1, 2009.

    Barclays formed BGI in 1996 when the bank bought Wells Fargo Nikko Advisers and integrated that business with BZW Investment Management.

    It introduced the first passive index strategy in 1971 and the first quantitative strategy in 1977. In 1996 -- three years after State Street launched the first ETF -- BGI teamed with Morgan Stanley to launch the World Equity Benchmark Shares (WEBS), which track the indexes of Morgan Stanley Capital Management. The WEBS funds were rechristened "iShares MSCI" funds in May 2000.
