After a gold ETF list, oil ETF list, silver ETF list and an India ETF list, next in line was a bond ETF list. But, there are just too many bond ETF options, and I thought I’d take them by the sponsor – one by one.

This is a list of iShares Bond ETF and is really a collection of the ETFs they offer. I plan to create a comprehensive list of all bond ETFs, and this will be a building block for that bigger list.

A word of caution about ETFs, just like you would be watchful in anything financial such as Business Insurance or Mortgage Home plans; bond ETFs too require careful research on things like investment objectives, risk factors, & the charges and expenses prior to investing.

The following is a list of iShares bond ETFs which you can use to get an idea:
