Fixed Income

iShares Global Inflation-Linked Bond Index Fund (US Dollar Hedged) (IE)

Overview

All financial investments involve an element of risk. Therefore, the value of your investment and the income from it will vary and your initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed. The fund invests a large portion of assets which are denominated in other currencies; hence changes in the relevant exchange rate will affect the value of the investment. The fund investments may be subject to liquidity constraints, which means that shares may trade less frequently and in small volumes, for instance smaller companies. As a result, changes in the value of investments may be more unpredictable. In certain cases, it may not be possible to sell the security at the last market price quoted or at a value considered to be fairest. Inflation linked bonds are fixed interest securities where the coupon payments increase and decrease with changes in official inflation rates. Such bonds offer investors some protection against rising levels of inflation, since rising official inflation data automatically feeds through into coupon payments. However, Investors should be aware that inflation linked bonds may, under certain circumstances, offer a slightly lower coupon payment compared to other types of fixed interest securities. Also, given that these securities are not exposed to inflation rate risk, should inflation rates decrease, the value of an inflation linked bond may not increase in price as might be expected for some other sorts of bond. The fund(s) may invest in structured credit products such as asset backed securities (‘ABS’) which pool together mortgages and other debts into single or multiple series credit products which are then passed on to investors, normally in return for interest payments based on the cash flows from the underlying assets. These securities have similar characteristics to corporate bonds but carry greater risk as the details of the underlying loans is unknown, although loans with similar terms are typically packaged together. The stability of returns from ABS are not only dependent on changes in interest-rates but also changes in the repayments of the underlying loans as a result of changes in economic conditions or the circumstances of the holder of the loan. These securities can therefore be more sensitive to economic events, may be subject to severe price movements and can be more difficult and/or more expensive to sell in difficult markets.
