Annual Performance Ranking of Various iShares Exchange-Traded Funds

I spent some time putting together the returns of some different asset class (LargeCap, MidCap, SmallCap, International, Emerging Markets, REIT, and Bond) Exchange-Traded Funds offered through iShares. I then took that information and ranked the performance for each year. I only used full-year returns. The earliest year for full-year returns was 2002. Not all of the ETFs were available in 2002 so I added them in the year they became available. Here are my findings in a PDF:

Next, I’ll look at the performance of the indexes vs. their growth and value sub-indexes. Stay tuned…
