The portfolio construction of the fund is made up of around 76 per cent of small to mid-caps, with allocations to frontier markets such as Africa.

Global asset manager BlackRock has launched a global equity small cap exchange traded fund, which aims to meet demand for exposure to developed market small-cap companies.

The iShares MSCI World Small Cap UCITS ETF will also provide exposure to companies within real estate, industrials and materials.

The index provides access to over 4,000 small-sized companies from 23 developed market countries globally, accounting for approximately 14 per cent of the free float-adjusted market capitalisation across each country.

The ETF has a total expense ratio of 0.35 per cent.
