iShares US Mortgage Backed Securities UCITS ETF

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.

Important Information: The value of your investment and the income from it will vary and your initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed. The Share class invests in fixed interest securities such as bonds which pay a fixed or variable rate of interest. Therefore the value of these securities is sensitive to movements in interest rates; typically when interest rates rise there is a corresponding decline in the market value of bonds. The Share class invests in fixed interest securities issued by US government sponsored enterprises such as Ginnie Mae, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. There is a risk of default where the issuing company may not pay income or repay capital to the Share class when due. Mortgage backed securities may be subject to liquidity risk (where there are insufficient buyers or sellers to allow the Share class to sell or buy investments readily), have high levels of borrowing and may not fully reflect the value of underlying assets.

Geographic exposure relates principally to the domicile of the issuers of the securities held in the product, added together and then expressed as a percentage of the product’s total holdings. However, in some instances it can reflect the country where the issuer of the securities carries out much of their business. Bonds are included in US bond indices when the securities are denominated in U.S. dollars regardless of the domicile of the issuer.

Credit quality ratings on underlying securities of the fund are received from S&P, Moody’s and Fitch and converted to the equivalent S&P major rating category. This breakdown is provided by BlackRock and takes the median rating of the three agencies when all three agencies rate a security the lower of the two ratings if only two agencies rate a security and one rating if that is all that is provided. Unrated securities do not necessarily indicate low quality. Below investment-grade is represented by a rating of BB and below. Ratings and portfolio credit quality may change over time.

Allocations are subject to change.
