BSF Style Advantage Screened Fund

Overview

Important Information: Capital at Risk. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and are not guaranteed. Investors may not get back the amount originally invested. Absolute Return' funds may not move in line with market trends or fully benefit from a positive market environment. Emerging markets are generally more sensitive to economic and political conditions than developed markets. Equities and equity-related securities can be affected by daily stock market movements. Fixed Income securities can be affected by changes to interest rates, credit risk and potential or actual credit rating downgrades. Noninvestment grade FI securities can be more sensitive to these events. FDIs are highly sensitive to changes in the value of the asset they are based on. The impact is greater where FDIs are used in an extensive or complex way.

Sustainability Characteristics

Sustainability Characteristics

To be included in MSCI ESG Fund Ratings, 65% of the fund’s gross weight must come from securities covered by MSCI ESG Research (certain cash positions and other asset types deemed not relevant for ESG analysis by MSCI are removed prior to calculating a fund’s gross weight; the absolute values of short positions are included but treated as uncovered), the fund’s holdings date must be less than one year old, and the fund must have at least ten securities. For newly launched funds, sustainability characteristics are typically available 6 months after launch. MSCI Ratings are currently unavailable for this fund.

Business Involvement

Business Involvement

Business Involvement metrics can help investors gain a more comprehensive view of specific activities in which a fund may be exposed through its investments.


Business Involvement metrics are not indicative of a fund’s investment objective, and, unless otherwise stated in fund documentation and included within a fund’s investment objective, do not change a fund’s investment objective or constrain the fund’s investable universe, and there is no indication that an ESG or Impact focused investment strategy or exclusionary screens will be adopted by a fund. For more information regarding a fund's investment strategy, please see the fund's prospectus.


Review the MSCI methodology behind the Business Involvement metrics, using links below.

MSCI - Controversial Weapons as of Jun 30, 2021 0.00%
MSCI - UN Global Compact Violators as of Jun 30, 2021 0.00%
MSCI - Nuclear Weapons as of Jun 30, 2021 0.00%
MSCI - Thermal Coal as of Jun 30, 2021 0.00%

MSCI - Oil Sands as of Jun 30, 2021 0.00%
MSCI - Tobacco as of Jun 30, 2021 0.00%

Business Involvement Coverage as of Jun 30, 2021 4.85%
Percentage of Fund not covered as of Jun 30, 2021 81.53%
BlackRock business involvement exposures as shown above for Thermal Coal and Oil Sands are calculated and reported for companies that generate more than 5% of revenue from thermal coal or oil sands as defined by MSCI ESG Research. For the exposure to companies that generate any revenue from thermal coal or oil sands (at a 0% revenue threshold), as defined by MSCI ESG Research, it is as follows: Thermal Coal 0.00% and for Oil Sands 0.00%.

Business Involvement metrics are calculated by BlackRock using data from MSCI ESG Research which provides a profile of each company’s specific business involvement. BlackRock leverages this data to provide a summed up view across holdings and translates it to a fund's market value exposure to the listed Business Involvement areas above.


Business Involvement metrics are designed only to identify companies where MSCI has conducted research and identified as having involvement in the covered activity. As a result, it is possible there is additional involvement in these covered activities where MSCI does not have coverage. This information should not be used to produce comprehensive lists of companies without involvement. Business Involvement metrics are only displayed if at least 1% of the fund’s gross weight includes securities covered by MSCI ESG Research.

ESG Integration

ESG Integration

ESG integration is the practice of incorporating material environmental, social and governance (ESG) information or insights alongside traditional measures into the investment decision process to improve long term financial outcomes of portfolios. Unless otherwise stated in Fund documentation or included within the Fund’s investment objective, inclusion of this statement does not imply that the Fund has an ESG-aligned investment objective, but rather describes how ESG information is considered as part of the overall investment process.


The Fund manager includes ESG considerations in the research, selection, monitoring and reporting phases of the investment process. This may include third-party and internal material considerations, as defined by the investment team, of ESG criteria. The Fund manager undergoes a rigorous research phase in the construction of internal ESG research signals, which highlight criteria such as human capital or management quality. As part of this research, the Fund manager conducts due diligence on ESG data providers. Once these signals have met the criteria necessary to be incorporated in the portfolio, they are considered as part of the investment decisions on an ongoing basis as part of a broader set of signals. The Fund manager additionally uses standardized ESG criteria (headline ESG ratings, carbon emissions intensity) during the reporting phase. These may be sourced internally or directly from third-party data providers and are featured in internal portfolio analytics. The Fund manager conducts regular portfolio risk reviews with Risk and Quantitative Analysis group. These reviews include discussion of the portfolio’s exposure to material ESG risks, as well as exposure to sustainability-related business involvements, climate-related metrics, and other factors.
