iShares Core CSI 300 ETF

IMPORTANT: Investment involves risk, including the loss of principal. Investors should refer to the Prospectus and Key Facts Statement of the iShares Core CSI 300 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 CSI 300 Index (the “Underlying Index”).
• Generally, investments in emerging markets, such as the A Share market, may involve increased risks such as liquidity risks, currency risks/control, political and economic uncertainties, legal, regulatory and taxation risks, settlement risks, custody risk and the likelihood of a high degree of volatility. The A Share market may be more volatile and unstable than those in the more developed markets. The ETF’s exposure is concentrated in the PRC and may be more volatile than funds adopting a more diversified strategy.
• The ETF currently does not provision for withholding tax on capital gains (“CGT”) arising from its investment via RQFII or its investment via Stock Connect. There are risks and uncertainties associated with the current PRC tax laws, regulations and practice in respect of capital gains realized on the ETF’s PRC investments, which may have retrospective effect. Any increased tax liabilities on the ETF may adversely affect its value, and the resultant tax liability would be eventually borne by investors.
• The ETF is subject to restrictions and requirements applicable to RQFII investment, and the applicable laws, rules and regulations in the PRC, which are subject to change and such change may have potential retrospective effect. The ETF may be unable to invest via the RQFII Licence Holder’s RQFII status including if the approval of the RQFII Licence Holder is revoked/terminated or otherwise invalidated as the ETF may be prohibited from trading of relevant securities and repatriation of the ETF’s monies, or if any of the key operators (including the RQFII Custodian and PRC broker) is bankrupt or in default and/or is disqualified from performing its obligations (including execution or settlement of any transaction or transfer of monies or securities).
• The relevant rules and regulations on the Stock Connect are subject to change. The Stock Connect is subject to quota limitations. Where a suspension in the trading through the programme is effected, the ETF’s ability to invest in A shares through Stock Connect will be adversely affected.
• The Base Currency of the ETF is RMB which is currently not freely convertible and is subject to exchange controls and restrictions. Non-RMB based investors are exposed to foreign exchange risk.
• The ETF is subject to tracking error risk, which is the risk that its performance may not track that of the Underlying Index exactly.
• 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, which may inhibit or delay an investor dealing. The market price of units traded in each counter may deviate significantly.
• The Manager may at its discretion pay dividends out of capital or effectively out of capital which 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 ETF’s NAV per unit.
• All units will receive distributions in the base currency (RMB) only. In the event that a unitholder has no RMB account, the unitholder may have to bear (i) the fees and charges associated with the conversion of such dividend distributions from RMB to USD, HKD or any other currency; and (ii) other bank or financial institutional fees and charges associated with the handling of the distribution payment in currencies other than RMB. Unitholders are advised to check with their brokers regarding arrangements for distribution.
• The trading price of the units of the ETF on the SEHK is subject to market forces and may trade at a substantial premium/discount to the ETF’s NAV.


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 RMB multiplied by the real time exchange rate provided by ICE Data Services for HKD and USD 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 provide investors with specific non-traditional metrics. Alongside other metrics and information, these enable investors to evaluate funds on certain environmental, social and governance characteristics. Sustainability Characteristics do not provide an indication of current or future performance nor do they represent the potential risk and reward profile of a fund. They are provided for transparency and for information purposes only. Sustainability Characteristics should not be considered solely or in isolation, but instead are one type of information that investors may wish to consider when assessing a fund.

The metrics are not indicative of how or whether ESG factors will be integrated into a fund. Unless otherwise stated in fund documentation and included within a fund’s investment objective, the metrics 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.

What is the Implied Temperature Rise (ITR) metric? Learn what the metric means, how it is calculated, and about the assumptions and limitations for this forward-looking climate-related metric.

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges in human history and will have profound implications for investors. To address climate change, many of the world's major countries have signed the Paris Agreement. The temperature goal of the Paris Agreement is to limit global warming to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels, and ideally 1.5 °C, which will help us avoid the most severe impacts of climate change.

What is the ITR metric?

The ITR metric is used to provide an indication of alignment to the temperature goal of the Paris Agreement for a company or a portfolio. Scientific consensus suggests that reducing emissions until they reach net zero around mid-century (2050-2070) is how this goal could be met. A net zero emissions economy is one that balances emissions and removals.

How is the ITR metric calculated?

The ITR metric is calculated by looking at the current emissions intensity of companies within the fund's portfolio as well as the potential for those companies to reduce its emissions over time. If emissions in the global economy followed the same trend as the emissions of companies within the fund's portfolio, global temperatures would ultimately rise within this band.

Note, only corporate issuers are covered within the calculation. A summary explanation of MSCI’s methodology and assumptions for its ITR metric can be found here.

Because the ITR metric is calculated in part by considering the potential for a company within the fund’s portfolio to reduce its emissions over time, it is forward-looking and prone to limitations. As a result, BlackRock publishes MSCI’s ITR metric for its funds in temperature range bands. The bands help to underscore the underlying uncertainty in the calculations and the variability of the metric.

What are the key assumptions and limitations of the ITR metric?

This forward-looking metric is calculated based on a model, which is dependent upon multiple assumptions. Also, there are limitations with the data inputs to the model. Importantly, an ITR metric may vary meaningfully across data providers for a variety of reasons due to methodological choices (e.g., differences in time horizons, the scope(s) of emissions included and portfolio aggregation calculations).

There is not a universally accepted way to calculate an ITR. There is not a universally agreed upon set of inputs for the calculation. At present, availability of input data varies across asset classes and markets. To the extent that data becomes more readily available and more accurate over time, we expect that ITR metric methodologies will evolve and may result in different outputs. Where data is not available, and / or if data changes, the estimation methods vary, particularly those related to a company’s future emissions.

The ITR metric estimates a fund’s alignment with the Paris Agreement temperature goal. However, there is no guarantee that these estimates will be reached. The ITR metric is not a real time estimate and may change over time, therefore it is prone to variance and may not always reflect a current estimate.

The ITR metric is not an indication or estimate of a fund’s performance or risk. Investors should not rely on this metric when making an investment decision and instead should refer to a fund’s prospectus and governing documents. This estimate and the associated information is not intended as a recommendation to invest in any fund, nor is it intended to indicate any correlation between a fund’s ITR metric and its future investment performance.

All data is from MSCI ESG Fund Ratings as of 06-May-2022, based on holdings as of 31-Mar-2022. 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 with ESG coverage 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.

Business Involvement Coverage as of 26-May-2022 99.95%
Percentage of Fund not covered as of 26-May-2022 0.05%
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 1.34% and for Oil Sands 0.00%.

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.
