iShares Core MSCI Asia ex Japan ETF

IMPORTANT: Investment involves risk, including the loss of principal. Investors should refer to the Prospectus and Key Facts Statement of the iShares Core MSCI AC Asia ex Japan Index ETF (the “ETF”) for details, including the risk factors. Investors should not base investment decisions on this marketing material alone. Investors should note:
• The ETF aims to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, closely correspond to the performance of the MSCI All Country Asia Ex Japan Index. The exposure of the ETF is concentrated in the Asian market and may be more volatile than funds adopting a more geographically diversified strategy.
• The ETF is subject to tracking error risk, which is the risk that its performance may not track that of the underlying index exactly.
• The ETF invests in emerging market countries in Asia. Investments in emerging markets are generally subject to a greater risk of loss than investments in a developed market.
• The ETF invests in stocks of large to mid-capitalisation companies. Stocks of mid-capitalisation companies may have lower liquidity and higher volatility compared to stocks of larger capitalisation companies.
• The ETF may invest in other iShares ETFs which provide exposure to Indian securities to track the performance of Indian constituents of the Index, and in other ETFs for cash management and contingency purposes. Conflicts of interest may arise if the Manager also acts as manager of the other ETFs invested by the ETF. There is also no guarantee these ETFs which the ETF invests will achieve their respective investment objectives and any tracking error of these ETFs and difference of the underlying constituents will contribute to the tracking error of the ETF.
• The ETF’s Base Currency is in USD but has units traded in HKD and RMB (in addition to USD). Investors may be subject to additional costs or losses associated with foreign currency fluctuations between the Base Currency and the RMB or HKD trading currency when trading units in the secondary market.
• RMB is currently not freely convertible and is subject to exchange controls and restrictions. Non-RMB based investors are exposed to foreign exchange risk on RMB-denominated investments.
• If there is a suspension of the inter-counter transfer of units between the counters and/or any limitation on the level of services provided by brokers and CCASS participants, Unitholders will only be able to trade their units in one counter. The market price of units traded in each counter may deviate significantly.
• The Manager may at its discretion pay dividends out of the capital of the ETF. Payment of dividends out of capital amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor's original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Any distributions involving payment of dividends out of the ETF’s capital may result in an immediate reduction of the Net Asset Value (“NAV”) per Unit.
• Trading prices on the SEHK is subject to market forces and may trade at a substantial premium or discount to the NAV.
• The Fund may use derivatives for hedging and for investment purposes. However, usage for investment purposes will not be extensive. The Fund may suffer losses from its derivatives usage.

Overview

Estimated NAV per unit is indicative and for reference purposes only. It is calculated, disseminated on a delayed basis and displayed on this website by ICE Data Services using the estimated Net Asset Value per Unit in USD multiplied by the real time exchange rate provided by ICE Data Services for HKD and RMB (CNH) respectively. The near real time estimated NAV per unit is updated at 15-second intervals during trading hours of the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong.

Sustainability Characteristics

Sustainability Characteristics

Sustainability Characteristics can help investors integrate non-financial, sustainability considerations into their investment process. These metrics enable investors to evaluate funds based on their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities. This analysis can provide insight into the effective management and long-term financial prospects of a fund.


The metrics below have been provided for transparency and informational purposes only. The existence of an ESG rating is not indicative of how or whether ESG factors will be integrated into a fund. The metrics are based on MSCI ESG Fund Ratings 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.

All data is from MSCI ESG Fund Ratings as of 07-May-2021, based on holdings as of 31-Mar-2021. As such, the fund’s sustainable characteristics may differ from MSCI ESG Fund Ratings from time to time.

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.

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 11-Jun-2021 0.26%

Business Involvement Coverage as of 11-Jun-2021 99.96%
Percentage of Fund not covered as of 11-Jun-2021 0.04%
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 1.46% and for Oil Sands 0.27%.

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.
