iShares Core MSCI Taiwan 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 Taiwan 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 Taiwan Index.
• The ETF’s exposure is concentrated in the Taiwanese market and a greater portion of its assets may be represented in a single security or group of securities. It may be more susceptible to adverse economic, political, foreign exchange, liquidity, tax, legal or regulatory event affecting the Taiwanese market. The ETF may also subject to risks associated with the social factors, governmental changes, substantial government intervention, policies regarding inward investment and the restrictions on currency repatriation in Taiwan. Commodity market fluctuations and appreciation of the New Taiwan Dollar (“TWD”) may also affect the ETF’s Net Asset Value (“NAV”).
• The majority of underlying investments of the ETF are denominated in TWD, instead of the ETF’s base currency, USD. The ETF’s NAV may be affected unfavorably by fluctuations in the exchange rate between TWD and USD and by any change in exchange rate controls.
• All units will receive distributions in the base currency, USD, only. In the event that a unitholder has no USD account, the unitholder may have to bear (i) the fees and charges associated with the conversion of such dividend distributions from the base currency to HKD, RMB or any other currency; and (ii) the other bank or financial institutional fees and charges associated with the handling of the distribution payment. Unitholders are advised to check with their brokers regarding arrangements for distribution.
• Investors may be subject to additional costs or losses associated with foreign currency fluctuations between the base currency and the HKD or RMB trading currency. Furthermore, RMB is currently not freely convertible and is subject to exchange controls and restrictions.
• The ETF may be subject to tracking error risk, which is the risk that its performance may not track that of the underlying index exactly.
• The units of the ETF are traded on the SEHK. The trading price of the units is subject to market forces and may trade at a substantial premium or discount to the ETF’s NAV, which may also increase due to the differences in trading hours between the Taiwan Stock Exchange and the SEHK. As the Taiwan Stock Exchange may be open when units of the ETF are not priced, the securities’ values in the ETF may change on days when investors cannot trade the units.
• The price of units traded in different counters may deviate significantly. 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 can only trade their units in one counter.
• The Manager may at its discretion pay distributions out of capital, or effectively out of capital, of the ETF. Payment of distributions out of capital or effectively 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 such distributions may result in an immediate reduction of the NAV per unit.
• 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 and disseminated on a delayed basis by Deutsche Borse AG (and displayed on this website by Interactive Data) using the Estimated NAV per unit in the Base Currency multiplied by the WM Reuters 4:00p.m (London time)* FX rate for each trading currency for the previous Dealing Day, as displayed below under “Pricing and Exchange” under the column headed “FX to Base Ccy”. The near real time estimated NAV per unit (i) is updated at 15-second intervals during trading hours of the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong and (ii) does not use a real time exchange rate between the Base Currency and each trading currency.

*Please note 4:00pm (London time) (i) during British Summer Time is equivalent to 11:00pm Hong Kong Time and (ii) otherwise is equivalent to 12:00am Hong Kong Time.

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 01-Dec-2020, based on holdings as of 31-Aug-2020. 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.

Business Involvement Coverage as of 21-Jan-2021 99.80%
Percentage of Fund not covered as of 21-Jan-2021 0.20%
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 0.00% 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.
