This fund tracks an index with a factor focus which is less diversified than its parent index and will be more exposed to factor related market movements. Investors should consider this fund as part of a broader investment strategy.

Securities lending is an established and well regulated activity in the investment management industry. It involves the transfer of securities (such as shares or bonds) from a Lender (in this case, the iShares fund) to a third-party (the Borrower). The Borrower will give the Lender collateral (the Borrower’s pledge) in the form of shares, bonds or cash, and will also pay the Lender a fee. This fee provides additional income for the fund and thus can help to reduce the total cost of ownership of an ETF.

 

At BlackRock, securities lending is a core investment management function with dedicated trading, research and technology capabilities. The lending programme is designed to deliver superior absolute returns to clients, whilst maintaining a low risk profile. Funds participating in securities lending retain 62.5% of the income, while BlackRock receives 37.5% of the income and covers all the operational costs resulting from securities lending transactions.

 

Collateral Holdings shown on this page are provided on days where the fund participating in securities lending had an open loan.

The information in the Collateral Holdings table relates to securities obtained in the collateral basket under the securities lending programme for the fund in question. The information contained in this material is derived from proprietary and non-proprietary sources deemed by BlackRock to be reliable, is not necessarily all inclusive and is not guaranteed as to accuracy. Reliance upon information in this material is at the sole discretion of the reader. The primary risk in securities lending is that a borrower will default on their commitment to return lent securities while the value of the liquidated collateral does not exceed the cost of repurchasing the securities and the fund suffers a loss in respect of the short-fall.
~The information in the Lending Summary table will not be displayed for the funds that have participated in securities lending for less than 12 months.

*Annualised Securities Lending Return is calculated using unaudited 12 month net securities lending revenues to the fund divided by the average NAV of the fund over the same period. 62.5% of all securities lending income is paid directly into the fund, with BlackRock receiving 37.5% compensation which covers all operational costs. BlackRock’s policy is to disclose performance information quarterly subject to a one-month delay. This means that returns from 0/01/2015 to 31/12/2015 can be publicly disclosed from 01/02/2016.

+Maximum on-loan figure may increase or decrease over time.
**Collateral parameters depend on the collateral and the loan combination, and the over collateralisation level may range from 102.5% to 112%. In this context, “Over Collateralisation” means that the aggregate market value of collateral taken will exceed the overall on-loan value. Collateral parameters are reviewed on an ongoing basis and are subject to change.

Holdings are subject to change.

Please note that some of the fund holdings will be achieved by investing in Contracts for Difference (CFDs). A contract for difference is a derivative instrument that offers exposure to price changes in an underlying security without ownership of such security.
