The original 10 ETFs that became the backbone of the then-new iShares Core brand in October 2012 now command a total of $117 billion in assets under management. That’s $26 billion more than the $69 billion in assets when the lineup was launched.

While that increase reflects market movements, there’s no doubt the cheap lineup has attracted investor attention.
