BlackRock Dynamic Diversified Growth Fund

Overview

Important Information: Capital at Risk. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and are not guaranteed. Investors may not get back the amount originally invested.

The value of your investment and the income from it will vary and your initial investment amount is not guaranteed. 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.

All currency hedged share classes of this fund use derivatives to hedge currency risk. The use of derivatives for a share class could pose a potential risk of contagion (also known as spill-over) to other share classes in the fund. The fund’s management company will ensure appropriate procedures are in place to minimise contagion risk to other share class. Using the drop down box directly below the name of the fund, you can view a list of all share classes in the fund – currency hedged share classes are indicated by the word “Hedged” in the name of the share class. In addition, a full list of all currency hedged share classes is available on request from the fund’s management company

Sustainability Characteristics

Sustainability Characteristics

Sustainability Characteristics can help investors integrate non-financial, sustainability considerations into their investment process. These metrics enable investors to evaluate funds based on their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities. This analysis can provide insight into the effective management and long-term financial prospects of a fund.


The metrics below have been provided for transparency and informational purposes only. The existence of an ESG rating is not indicative of how or whether ESG factors will be integrated into a fund. The metrics are based on MSCI ESG Fund Ratings and, unless otherwise stated in fund documentation and included within a fund’s investment objective, do not change a fund’s investment objective or constrain the fund’s investable universe, and there is no indication that an ESG or Impact focused investment strategy or exclusionary screens will be adopted by a fund. For more information regarding a fund's investment strategy, please see the fund's prospectus.

MSCI ESG Fund Rating (AAA-CCC) as of 07-May-21 A
MSCI ESG Quality Score (0-10) as of 07-May-21 6.78
MSCI ESG Quality Score - Peer Percentile as of 07-May-21 62.79
MSCI ESG % Coverage as of 07-May-21 76.22
Fund Lipper Global Classification as of 07-May-21 Mixed Asset GBP Flexible
MSCI Weighted Average Carbon Intensity (Tons CO2E/$M SALES) as of 07-May-21 152.16
Funds in Peer Group as of 07-May-21 129
All data is from MSCI ESG Fund Ratings as of 07-May-21, based on holdings as of 31-Dec-20. As such, the fund’s sustainable characteristics may differ from MSCI ESG Fund Ratings from time to time.

To be included in MSCI ESG Fund Ratings, 65% of the fund’s gross weight must come from securities covered by MSCI ESG Research (certain cash positions and other asset types deemed not relevant for ESG analysis by MSCI are removed prior to calculating a fund’s gross weight; the absolute values of short positions are included but treated as uncovered), the fund’s holdings date must be less than one year old, and the fund must have at least ten securities. For newly launched funds, sustainability characteristics are typically available 6 months after launch.

Business Involvement

Business Involvement

Business Involvement metrics can help investors gain a more comprehensive view of specific activities in which a fund may be exposed through its investments.


Business Involvement metrics are not indicative of a fund’s investment objective, and, unless otherwise stated in fund documentation and included within a fund’s investment objective, do not change a fund’s investment objective or constrain the fund’s investable universe, and there is no indication that an ESG or Impact focused investment strategy or exclusionary screens will be adopted by a fund. For more information regarding a fund's investment strategy, please see the fund's prospectus.


Review the MSCI methodology behind the Business Involvement metrics, using links below.

MSCI - Controversial Weapons as of 30-Apr-21 0.30%
MSCI - UN Global Compact Violators as of 30-Apr-21 0.67%
MSCI - Nuclear Weapons as of 30-Apr-21 0.29%
MSCI - Thermal Coal as of 30-Apr-21 0.03%
MSCI - Civilian Firearms as of 30-Apr-21 0.06%
MSCI - Oil Sands as of 30-Apr-21 0.01%
MSCI - Tobacco as of 30-Apr-21 0.53%

Business Involvement Coverage as of 30-Apr-21 74.04%
Percentage of Fund not covered as of 30-Apr-21 25.96%
BlackRock business involvement exposures as shown above for Thermal Coal and Oil Sands are calculated and reported for companies that generate more than 5% of revenue from thermal coal or oil sands as defined by MSCI ESG Research. For the exposure to companies that generate any revenue from thermal coal or oil sands (at a 0% revenue threshold), as defined by MSCI ESG Research, it is as follows: Thermal Coal 0.39% and for Oil Sands 0.34%.

Business Involvement metrics are calculated by BlackRock using data from MSCI ESG Research which provides a profile of each company’s specific business involvement. BlackRock leverages this data to provide a summed up view across holdings and translates it to a fund's market value exposure to the listed Business Involvement areas above.


Business Involvement metrics are designed only to identify companies where MSCI has conducted research and identified as having involvement in the covered activity. As a result, it is possible there is additional involvement in these covered activities where MSCI does not have coverage. This information should not be used to produce comprehensive lists of companies without involvement. Business Involvement metrics are only displayed if at least 1% of the fund’s gross weight includes securities covered by MSCI ESG Research.

ESG Integration

ESG Integration

ESG integration is the practice of incorporating material environmental, social and governance (ESG) information or insights alongside traditional measures into the investment decision process to improve long term financial outcomes of portfolios. Unless otherwise stated in Fund documentation or included within the Fund’s investment objective, inclusion of this statement does not imply that the Fund has an ESG-aligned investment objective, but rather describes how ESG information is considered as part of the overall investment process.


The Fund manager incorporates ESG considerations throughout the investment process’ macro outlook, idea generation, implementation tools, portfolio construction, risk management, ongoing monitoring and reporting. All research ideas generated for the Fund consider the potential impact from ESG-associated risks, and these are documented as part of the investment process. Idea implementation uses a wide range of building blocks, including active mutual funds, index funds, ETFs, direct securities, derivatives, and third-party funds. The Fund manager reviews research ideas and asset allocation on a regular basis and reassesses each of the building blocks utilized to access research ideas. The choice of building block is informed by ESG considerations. For strategies with an explicit ESG objective, certain building blocks are used to comply with those guidelines. Where an ESG focused building block becomes available, it will be considered as a replacement for standard market exposure. Both the extent and impact of screens and integration are considered in the context of the investment objective / investment style of particular strategies. The Fund manager may also build bespoke thematic baskets of securities, which are subject to BlackRock baseline screens in the first instance and where appropriate, additional screening criteria. The Fund manager uses E, S, and G criteria such as headline ESG and carbon footprint during the reporting phase. These are sourced from Aladdin or directly from third-party data providers. The Fund manager conducts regular portfolio monitoring with BlackRock’s Risk and Quantitative Analysis group, as well as portfolio reviews with Chief Investment Officers. These reviews include discussion of the portfolio’s exposure to material ESG risks, as well as exposure to sustainability-related business involvements, climate-related metrics, and other factors.
