Today, we are joined by Rachel Aguirre, Head of U.S. iShares Product at BlackRock.
In this episode, Rachel shares insights into the thriving world of ETFs and the driving forces behind their exponential growth, highlighting the appeal of active ETFs to retail investors and the potential migration of mutual fund assets into ETFs.
Rachel walks us through BlackRock's recent launches, including the BlackRock Large Cap Value ETF [BLCV] and the BlackRock Flexible Income ETF [BINC]. She also discusses innovative buffer strategies, including the iShares Large Cap Deep Buffer ETF [IVVB] and the iShares Large Cap Moderate Buffer ETF [IVVM], defining their value proposition and addressing associated risks. We conclude with Rachel sharing her take on the 'next big idea,' diving into the iShares Automation & Robotics UCITS ETF and discussing the transformative potential of AI.
Rachel joined BlackRock as a portfolio manager in 2006, but before entering the finance world, she studied math and music in university, intending to become a classical pianist.
