Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal.
There can be no assurance that performance will be enhanced for funds that seek to provide exposure to certain quantitative investment characteristics ("factors"). Exposure to such investment factors may detract from performance in some market environments, perhaps for extended periods. In such circumstances, a fund may seek to maintain exposure to the targeted investment factors and not adjust to target different factors, which could result in losses.
Strategy availability may be limited to certain investment vehicles; not all investment vehicles may be available to all investors. Please contact your BlackRock representative for more information.
