Blackrock have recently launched a range of multi-asset ETFs similar to Vanguard’s popular Lifestrategy range, but in ETF format with some active tilting using ESG underlying funds (https://portfolio-adviser.com/blackrock-unveils-multi-asset-esg-range/). I wonder if it might be possible to bring the GBP accumulating versions to Freetrade?
These would be:
BlackRock ESG Multi-Asset Growth Portfolio UCITS ETF (MAGG) Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) | iShares UK – BlackRock
BlackRock ESG Multi-Asset Moderate Portfolio UCITS ETF (MAMG) Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) | iShares UK – BlackRock
BlackRock ESG Multi-Asset Conservative Portfolio UCITS ETF (MACG) Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) | iShares UK – BlackRock
I currently have a freetrade GIA that I use for ‘playing around’ but I am mainly a passive investor, I am looking to move my ISA soon and would love to be able to use these as a lazy, ESG alternative to Vanguard. With a dearth of broad ESG bond ETFs on freetrade, this would be a big pull for me as a cheap, SRI ‘set and forget’ option rather than an ESG equity ETF and trying to find the right bond fund. I’d probably move my ISA over shortly after they became available - in the hope of automated regular contributions later.
Thoughts? I am led to believe that @Viktor is easily persuaded by ESG ETFs
