BlackRock ICS Sterling Government Liquidity Fund

Overview

Capital at risk. All financial investments involve an element of risk. Therefore, the value of your investment and the income from it will vary and your initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested.

A Money Market Fund (MMF) is not a guaranteed investment vehicle. An investment in MMFs is different from an investment in deposits; the principal invested in an MMF is capable of fluctuation and the risk of loss of the principal is to be borne by the investor.
The MMF does not rely on external support for guaranteeing the liquidity of the MMF or stabilising the NAV per share.

Short Term Money Market Funds do not generally experience extreme price variations. Changes in interest rates will impact the Fund. Counterparty Risk: The insolvency of any institutions providing services such as safekeeping of assets or acting as counterparty to derivatives or other instruments, may expose the Fund to financial loss. Credit Risk: The issuer of a financial asset held within the Fund may not pay income or repay capital to the Fund when due.

Type Fund
Sector exposure is calculated by aggregating the percent par of individual securities in the portfolio by security type.

The values reported include cash, accrued income, and/or payables/receivables which may result in negative weightings from specific circumstances (including timing differences between trade and settle dates of securities purchased by the funds).

Credit quality ratings on underlying securities of the fund are received from S&P, Moody’s and Fitch and converted by BlackRock to the equivalent S&P major rating category. This breakdown is provided by BlackRock and takes the median rating of the three agencies when all three agencies rate a security, the lower of the two ratings if only two agencies rate a security and one rating if that is all that is provided. The values reported include cash, accrued income, and/or payables/receivables which may result in negative weightings may result from specific circumstances (including timing differences between trade and settle dates of securities purchased by the funds). Allocations are subject to change. S&P deem all A-1 securities maturing within 7 days as A-1+. Any security under a year with a long-term rating of AA- or above would also be considered to have a short-term rating of A-1+, whilst those with a long-term rating of A or above would be considered to have a short-term rating of A-1.
