By making available information on the Website, BlackRock does not represent that any investment vehicle is available or suitable for any particular user. All persons and entities accessing the Website do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws and regulations.

The funds referred to in this Website are authorized or recognized by the MAS for sale to the public in Singapore (the “Funds”). MAS authorization is not a recommendation or endorsement of a scheme nor does it guarantee the commercial merits or performances of the scheme. It does not mean that the scheme is suitable for all investors nor is it an endorsement of its suitability for any particular investor or class of investors. The material contained in this Website has not been reviewed by the MAS or any regulatory authority in Singapore.

Investment involves risk and may lose value. If you are considering making an investment, you are advised to obtain your own independent professional advice and to carefully consider all relevant risk factors. You may wish to seek advice from a financial adviser regarding the suitability of the Funds before making a commitment to purchase units or shares in the Funds. In the event you choose not to do so, you should consider whether the Funds is suitable for you. Please contact BlackRock (Singapore) Limited or our appointed distributors for more information on how to subscribe for units or shares in the Funds. The price of units or shares and the income from them in relation to any investment may go down as well as up and any past performance is not indicative of future performance. BlackRock does not guarantee the performance of the Funds.

An investment in the Funds often involves investing in international markets. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, international investments involve the risk of losing all or part of any capital from unfavourable fluctuations in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability in other nations. An investment in emerging markets also involves heightened other risks such as increased volatility and the possibility of lower trading volume.

When making an investment in the Funds which are listed on one or more stock exchanges, the price of the shares or units will be determined by supply and demand. It is not necessarily the same as the value per share or unit of that the Funds’ assets. At any time the share or unit price may be at a discount or premium to the asset value. However, because of the exchange-traded fund structure, it is expected that a significant discount or premium of price to asset value will not be sustainable over the long term. Any projections or examples (including calculations used therein) are for illustrative purposes only and are not guaranteed to be accurate or complete. You should note that shares or units may only be redeemed directly from the Funds by persons or entities registered as participating dealers in very large redemption sizes. Listing of the shares or units of the Funds does not guarantee a liquid market for them.

Where a Fund's investment objective is to track an index, the Fund is not sponsored, endorsed, issued, sold or promoted by the relevant index providers. None of these companies make any representation regarding the advisability of investing in the Funds.

Important information about the Funds is contained in the prospectus for the Funds which is available upon request from BlackRock. BEFORE ACQUIRING THE SHARES OR UNITS OF ANY FUNDS BY PURCHASE OR EXCHANGE, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO READ THE FUNDS’ PROSPECTUS OR OFFERING MATERIALS.

Focus on your long term goals

Although markets tend to be highly volatile over the short-term, they have historically produced strong results over the long-term. It is imperative for investors to remain focused and stay invested.

 


 

History of stock market recoveries

Over the past 27 years, we have seen a number of significant market declines.
However, the upturns that follow have on average lasted longer and been of greater scale in terms of returns.

 


 

Bull markets often outrun bear markets

Every market cycle has both up days and down days.
Often a few very good days account for a large part of the total return.
In bull markets, markets on average recovered strongly and posted gains
for at least two years.

Emotions affect investment decisions

Many investors tend to buy in rising markets (buy high) and sell in declining markets (sell low), contrary to the basics of investing. It is often when sentiment is at its worst that markets are set to rebound.

Missed opportunities can be costly

Consistently predicting which days will move in which direction is virtually impossible and can be very costly. Missing only a few of the best days in the market could have an adverse effect on an investor’s return.

Diversify, diversify, diversify

In today’s changing market environment, you need to have confidence that your investment is ready to weather even the worst days. A core-satellite approach can help your investment portfolio to weather all market cycles. You can then enhance and customize your portfolio by adding shorter-term, tactical or asset class-specific investments,
which are designed to opportunistically take advantage of market trends or special investment situations.

Therefore, the value of your investment and the income from it will vary and your initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed. Investors may not get back the amount they invest. Changes in the rates of exchange between currencies may cause the value of investments to go up and down. Fluctuation may be particularly marked in the case of a higher volatility fund and the value of an investment may fall suddenly and substantially. Levels and basis of taxation may change from time to time. Investors may wish to seek advice from a financial adviser before purchasing units of the Fund.
