Equity

iShares Developed World Index Fund (IE)

Overview

Important Information: Capital at Risk. 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 value of equities and equity-related securities can be affected by daily stock market movements. Other influential factors include political, economic news, company earnings and significant corporate events. Derivatives are highly sensitive to changes in the value of the asset on which they are based and can increase the size of losses and gains, resulting in greater fluctuations in the value of the Fund. The impact to the Fund can be greater where derivatives are used in an extensive or complex way.

Sustainability Characteristics

Sustainability Characteristics

To be included in MSCI ESG Fund Ratings, 65% of the fund’s underlying holdings (excluding cash positions) must be covered by MSCI ESG Research, 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. 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.


Transparency on Business Involvement metrics is not indicative of a fund’s investment objective, and, unless otherwise stated in Fund documentation and included within a Fund’s investment objective, ESG integration does not change a Fund’s investment objective or constrain the Investment Manager’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.


Review the MSCI methodology behind the Business Involvement metrics using links below.

Business Involvement exposures shown above for Thermal Coal and Oil Sands are calculated and reported for issuers within the fund that generate more than 5% of revenue from thermal coal mining or oil sands extraction, as defined by MSCI ESG Research. For the exposure to issuers within the fund that generate any revenue from thermal coal mining or oil sands extraction (at a 0% revenue threshold), as defined by MSCI ESG Research, it is as follows: Thermal Coal 0.96% and for Oil Sands 1.37%.

Business Involvement metrics are calculated using MSCI ESG Research which provides a profile of each company’s specific business involvement. BlackRock leverages this research 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.
