iShares U.S. Small Cap Index ETF (CAD-Hedged)
The iShares U.S. Small Cap Index ETF (CAD-Hedged) seeks to provide long-term capital growth by replicating, to the extent possible, the performance of the Russell 2000® Index - Canadian Dollar Hedged (Index), net of expenses. The Index is a market capitalization-weighted index of securities of 2,000 of the smaller U.S. public issuers provided by Frank Russell Company, hedged to Canadian dollars. The Russell 2000 Index, which forms the basis for the Index, is commonly used as a measure of U.S. small capitalization stock market performance.
Effective March 24, 2014, the name of the fund was changed from iShares Russell 2000® Index Fund (CAD-Hedged) to iShares U.S. Small Cap Index ETF (CAD-Hedged).
On March 24, 2014, BlackRock Canada announced changes to the investment strategy for the fund. Please refer to the press release for more information.
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.
All amounts given in Canadian dollars.
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.
