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: Important Information: The value of your investment and the income from it will vary and your initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed. ETFs trade on exchanges like stocks and are bought and sold at market prices which may be different to the net asset values of the ETFs. Two main risks related to fixed income investing are interest rate risk and credit risk. Typically, when interest rates rise, there is a corresponding decline in the market value of bonds. Credit risk refers to the possibility that the issuer of the bond will not be able to repay the principal and make interest payments. The fund invests in fixed interest securities issued by companies. There is a risk of default where the issuing company may not pay income or repay capital to the Fund when due. The currency hedging is designed to reduce, but cannot eliminate the impact of currency movements between the Base Currency and the currencies in which some or all of the underlying investments are transacted. Depending on the exchange rates, this may have a positive or negative impact on the performance of the Fund.

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.
