iShares US Mortgage Backed Securities UCITS ETF

Overview

Important Information: Important Information: The value of your investment and the income from it will vary and your initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed. ETFs trade on exchanges like stocks and are bought and sold at market prices which may be different to the net asset values of the ETFs. Two main risks related to fixed income investing are interest rate risk and credit risk. Typically, when interest rates rise, there is a corresponding decline in the market value of bonds. Credit risk refers to the possibility that the issuer of the bond will not be able to repay the principal and make interest payments. The fund invests in fixed interest securities issued by companies. There is a risk of default where the issuing company may not pay income or repay capital to the Fund when due. The currency hedging is designed to reduce, but cannot eliminate the impact of currency movements between the Base Currency and the currencies in which some or all of the underlying investments are transacted. Depending on the exchange rates, this may have a positive or negative impact on the performance of the Fund.
