iShares Fund Reclassifications

Further to the press release issued January 31, 2018, we decided to simplify the iShares product line up by reclassifying all advisor class units of the exchange traded funds into common units of the same iShares ETF. This change is consistent with overall industry trends toward transparent and simplified fee structures. Please refer to the April 6th press release for final reclassification details.
