BlackRock Dividend Income Trust
INVESTMENT APPROACHBlackRock Dividend Income Trust’s (BQY) (the 'Trust') investment objective is to provide total return through a combination of current income and capital appreciation. The Trust seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in equity securities of issuers that pay above-average dividends and have the potential for capital appreciation. The Trust invests, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its assets in equity securities that pay dividends. The Trust may invest directly in such securities or synthetically through the use of derivatives. The Trust utilizes an option writing (selling) strategy to enhance dividend yield. The Board approved a change to the Trust’s non-fundamental investment policies on June 4, 2013. Please refer to page 150 in the Additional Information section. In addition, on July 30, 2013, the Board approved a change to the Trust’s name from 'BlackRock S&P Quality Rankings Global Equity Managed Trust' to 'BlackRock Dividend Income Trust.' The name change became effective on August 13, 2013.
No assurance can be given that the Trust’s investment objective will be achieved.
