Fixed Income

BlackRock Fixed Income Global Opportunities Fund

IMPORTANT:
• The Fund may invest in debt securities that are subject to actual or perceived ratings downgrade. An increase in interest rates may adversely affect the value of the bonds held by the Fund. The Fund may invest in non-investment grade and unrated bonds that may be subject to higher default, volatility and liquidity risks. The Fund invests in asset/ mortgage backed securities that may be subject to greater credit, liquidity, and interest rate risks and are often exposed to extension and prepayment risks.
• The fund is subject to currency risk, delayed delivery transactions risk, emerging market risk, foreign investments restrictions risk, sovereign debt risk, securities lending counterparty risk, currency conversion risk including Renminbi denominated Classes, liquidity risk and contingent convertible bonds risk.
• Class 6 Shares pay dividends gross of expenses and/or from capital at the Directors’ discretion. Class 8 Shares pay dividends gross of expenses and/or from capital at the Directors’ discretion and include interest rate differentials arising from share class currency hedging. Negative interest rate differentials may decrease the dividends paid. Paying dividends gross of expenses may result in more income being available for distribution; however these shares may effectively pay dividends from capital – may amount to a partial return or withdrawal of an investor’s original investment or capital gains. All declared dividends result in an immediate reduction in the NAV price of the share class on the ex-dividend date.
• The Fund may use derivatives for hedging and extensively for investment purposes. Risks associated with derivatives include counterparty/credit, liquidity, valuation, volatility and market risks. The Fund’s volatility may increase or decrease from its derivative usage, and may suffer losses.
• The value of the Fund can be volatile and can go down substantially within a short period of time. It is possible that a certain amount of your investment could be lost.
• Investors should not make investment decisions based on this document alone. Investors should refer to the Prospectus and Key Facts Statement for details including risk factors

Overview

Loading

All currency hedged share classes of this fund use derivatives to hedge currency risk. The use of derivatives for a share class could pose a potential risk of contagion (also known as spill-over) to other share classes in the fund. The fund’s management company will ensure appropriate procedures are in place to minimise contagion risk to other share class. Using the drop down box directly below the name of the fund, you can view a list of all share classes in the fund – currency hedged share classes are indicated by the word “Hedged” in the name of the share class. In addition, a full list of all currency hedged share classes is available on request from the fund’s management company

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Investors may not get back the full amount invested.

Performance is calculated based on the period NAV-to-NAV with dividend reinvested. Performance figures are calculated net of fees.

These figures show by how much the Share Class of the Fund increased or decreased in value during the period being shown. Performance is calculated in the relevant share class currency, including ongoing charges and taxes and excluding subscription and redemption fees, if applicable.

Where no past performance is shown there was insufficient data available in that period to provide performance.

Please refer to the Key Facts section for the inception date of the Fund and the Share Class.

Sustainability Characteristics

Sustainability Characteristics

To be included in MSCI ESG Fund Ratings, 65% of the fund’s gross weight must come from securities covered by MSCI ESG Research (certain cash positions and other asset types deemed not relevant for ESG analysis by MSCI are removed prior to calculating a fund’s gross weight; the absolute values of short positions are included but treated as uncovered), the fund’s holdings date must be less than one year old, and the fund must have at least ten securities. For newly launched funds, sustainability characteristics are typically available 6 months after launch. MSCI Ratings are currently unavailable for this fund.

Business Involvement

Business Involvement

Business Involvement metrics can help investors gain a more comprehensive view of specific activities in which a fund may be exposed through its investments.


Business Involvement metrics are not indicative of a fund’s investment objective, and, unless otherwise stated in fund documentation and included within a fund’s investment objective, do not change a fund’s investment objective or constrain the fund’s investable universe, and there is no indication that an ESG or Impact focused investment strategy or exclusionary screens will be adopted by a fund. For more information regarding a fund's investment strategy, please see the fund's prospectus.


Review the MSCI methodology behind the Business Involvement metrics, using links below.

MSCI - Controversial Weapons as of 28-May-2021 0.03%
MSCI - UN Global Compact Violators as of 28-May-2021 0.71%
MSCI - Nuclear Weapons as of 28-May-2021 0.02%
MSCI - Thermal Coal as of 28-May-2021 0.00%

MSCI - Oil Sands as of 28-May-2021 0.00%
MSCI - Tobacco as of 28-May-2021 0.21%

Business Involvement Coverage as of 28-May-2021 21.28%
Percentage of Fund not covered as of 28-May-2021 78.19%
BlackRock business involvement exposures as shown above for Thermal Coal and Oil Sands are calculated and reported for companies that generate more than 5% of revenue from thermal coal or oil sands as defined by MSCI ESG Research. For the exposure to companies that generate any revenue from thermal coal or oil sands (at a 0% revenue threshold), as defined by MSCI ESG Research, it is as follows: Thermal Coal 0.15% and for Oil Sands 0.34%.

Business Involvement metrics are calculated by BlackRock using data from MSCI ESG Research which provides a profile of each company’s specific business involvement. BlackRock leverages this data to provide a summed up view across holdings and translates it to a fund's market value exposure to the listed Business Involvement areas above.


Business Involvement metrics are designed only to identify companies where MSCI has conducted research and identified as having involvement in the covered activity. As a result, it is possible there is additional involvement in these covered activities where MSCI does not have coverage. This information should not be used to produce comprehensive lists of companies without involvement. Business Involvement metrics are only displayed if at least 1% of the fund’s gross weight includes securities covered by MSCI ESG Research.

ESG Integration

ESG Integration

ESG integration is the practice of incorporating material environmental, social and governance (ESG) information or insights alongside traditional measures into the investment decision process to improve long term financial outcomes of portfolios. Unless otherwise stated in Fund documentation or included within the Fund’s investment objective, inclusion of this statement does not imply that the Fund has an ESG-aligned investment objective, but rather describes how ESG information is considered as part of the overall investment process.


The Fund manager includes ESG considerations in combination with other information in the research and due diligence phase of the investment process. ESG information may be sourced internally, via collaboration with the BlackRock Investment Stewardship team in engaging issuers on material environmental, social or governance topics, or from third-party providers. The Fund manager’s ongoing monitoring of the portfolio involves regular portfolio risk reviews with the Risk and Quantitative Analysis group. These reviews include discussion of the portfolio’s exposure to material ESG risks, as well as exposure to sustainability-related business involvements, climate-related metrics, and other factors.

The fund itself has not been rated by an independent rating agency. Credit quality ratings on underlying securities of the fund are received from S&P, Moody’s and Fitch. This breakdown is provided by BlackRock and takes the middle rating of the 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. Unrated securities do not necessarily indicate low quality. Ratings and portfolio credit quality may change over time.
