iShares FTSE China A50 ETF

IMPORTANT: Investment involves risk, including the loss of principal. Investors should refer to the Prospectus and Key Facts Statement of the iShares FTSE China A50 ETF (the “ETF”) for details, including the risk factors. If you are in any doubt, you should consult your stockbroker, bank manager, solicitor, accountant or other financial adviser for independent financial advice.  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 FTSE China A50 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 is subject to tracking error risk, which is the risk that its performance may not track that of the Underlying Index exactly.
• The ETF is subject to restrictions and requirements applicable to QFII / 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 QFII/RQFII status of each QFII/RQFII Licence Holder including if the approval of the relevant QFII/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 QFII/RQFII Custodians 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 ETF currently does not provision for withholding tax on capital gains (“CGT”) arising from its investment via CAAPs, QFII or RQFII on or after 17 November 2014, 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.
• All units will receive distributions in the base currency (RMB) only. 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 or effectively out of the ETF’s capital may result in an immediate reduction of the ETF’s NAV per unit.
• 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 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.
• The ETF is subject to securities lending transactions risks. In particular, the borrower may fail to return the securities in a timely manner and the value of the collateral may fall below the value of the securities lent out.

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. The estimated NAV per unit for each trading currency other than the Base Currency is calculated using the estimated Net Asset Value per Unit in the Base Currency multiplied by the real time exchange rate provided by ICE Data Services for each such trading currency. 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

To be included in MSCI ESG Fund Ratings, 65% (or 50% for bond funds and money market funds) 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. 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.

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 3.78% 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.
