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 3(G) Shares pay dividends gross of expenses. 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.

The figures shown relate to past performance. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Markets could develop very differently in the future. It can help you to assess how the fund has been managed in the past

Share Class and Benchmark performance displayed in SGD hedged Share Class Benchmark performance is displayed in USD.

Performance is shown on a Net Asset Value (NAV) basis, with gross income reinvested where applicable. The return of your investment may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations if your investment is made in a currency other than that used in the past performance calculation.

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.
