Lace up your high tops and put on your sweat band. Don't forget to practice your free shot and your lay up. For in 11 days, the iShares Fund Frenzy Contest
will begin again.
, which has been held since 2009, is a rotisserie-style fantasy game of sorts (played with real iShares ETFs folks!) designed to resemble a college basketball tournament bracket.
Investors get to pick iShares
ETFs in four brackets: domestic; income; international; and country. The ETFs are then run against each other in tournament style brackets than run four to five days. The fund that achieves the highest net asset value closing price, plus dividends, at the end of each round gets to move to the next round.
Investors then are awarded points for each successful pick, and other factors. Highest scorers are placed on the leader board.
The winner, who will be alerted on or before April 26th, will get to choose a charity that will receive between $5,000 to $20,000 in donations from BlackRock.
