The iShares ILB ETF provides investors with exposure to the performance of a segment of the Australian bond market comprised of inflation-linked fixed income securities.
A Best ETFs No Rating rating is a fund rating our analysts apply to funds, LICs, mFunds, or ETFs that represents a ‘pending’ or ‘not yet researched’ status for the fund/ETF.
Please note, our rating methodology, research cycle, and process are currently being updated and will soon include full analyst ETF notes, reports, interviews, research, and ratings on select Australian ETFs and funds.

ILB aims to track the performance of the Bloomberg AusBond Inflation Government 0+ Yr Index (before fees and expenses) which is a rules-based, market value-weighted index that includes bonds maturing in 0+ years. Most of the bonds within ILB are treasury bonds, with a smaller allocation to government-related bonds.
Investors could use the ILB ETF to diversify an existing portfolio and gain exposure to Australian bonds with protection from inflation. Additionally, ILB could be used to create a regular income stream from the quarterly distributions offered by this ETF. The value of inflation-linked bonds are periodically adjusted according to the rate of inflation so as to provide investors with a level of protection against inflation.
