The above results are hypothetical and are intended for illustrative purposes only. The Hypothetical Growth of $10,000 chart reflects a hypothetical $10,000 investment and assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Fund expenses, including management fees and other expenses, were deducted. As a result of the risks and limitations inherent in hypothetical performance data, hypothetical results may differ from actual performance.

Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual performance and are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk. There are frequently differences between simulated performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular fund. In addition, since trades have not actually been executed, simulated results cannot account for the impact of certain market risks such as lack of liquidity. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or the implementation of any specific investment strategy, which cannot be fully accounted for the in the preparation of simulated results and all of which can adversely affect actual results.

The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted.

At least once each year, the Fund will distribute all net taxable income to investors. These distributions will either be paid in cash or reinvested in the Fund, as may be determined by BlackRock Asset Management Canada Limited from time to time. These distributions will consist primarily of distributions received from the securities held within the Fund less Fund expenses, plus any realized capital gains generated from securities transactions within the Fund.


The amounts of past distributions are shown below. The characterization of distributions for tax purposes (such as dividends, other income, capital gains etc.) for each period will be reported only after the Fund's tax year end. Therefore, the chart below showing the tax characteristics will be updated only once each tax year. For tax purposes, these amounts will be reported by brokers on official tax statements.

Index history does not represent trades that have actually been executed and therefore may under or over compensate for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as illiquidity. No representation is being made that an actual investment in accordance with the above will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to the index history. Indexes are unmanaged and do not reflect the payment of transaction costs, advisory fees or expenses that are associated with an investment in an investable product. An index’s performance is not illustrative of an investable product’s performance. Indexes are not securities in which direct investments can be made.
