S&P Mid Cap 400 Index iShares & ETFs information
The S&P 400 is the most widely used index for mid-sized companies. Today, mid-caps are recognized as an independent asset class, with risk/reward profiles that differ considerably from both large-caps and small-caps. It covers approximately 7% of the U.S. equities market, and is part of a series of S&P U.S. indices that can be used as building blocks for portfolio construction.
iShares are exchange-traded securities that represent ownership in over 50 different index funds, each designed to provide investment returns corresponding to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of a particular index compiled by one of five index providers: Standard & Poors (a division of The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc.), Dow Jones & Company, Cohen & Steers, The NASDAQ Stock Market, Inc., Frank Russell Company and Goldman Sachs Group. There is no assurance that the price and yield performance of each particular index for each fund can be fully matched.
iShares S&P 400 Index Fund seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the S&P 400 Index.
