iShares continually reviews its range of products to ensure we're meeting the evolving needs of our clients. Based on ongoing reviews, client feedback and limited interest in these strategies, we have decided to close the following ETFs.

After the funds close, they will continue to trade until market open on the following day. At that time, the funds will seek to liquidate holdings. Shareholders should expect to receive a cash distribution on or around the final distribution date.
