The MyMap range: Making investing in the UK easier and more affordable

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. Marketing material

Figuring out how to invest can be overwhelming and knowing where to start can be half the battle. But any journey becomes a lot clearer when you have a map.

BlackRock’s MyMap range of portfolios offers a set of simple, diversified, cost-effective and risk-managed funds that help take the stress out of investing. 

Risk: Diversification and asset allocation may not fully protect you from market risk. For illustrative purposes only.

These funds make investments into ETFs that track stock and bond markets, as well as into ETCs, that invest in portfolio diversifiers, such as physical gold. This diversification can protect an investor's returns over time, even when markets are volatile.

Interested in investing sustainably? Our ESG-based fund takes into account environmental, social, and governance considerations when selecting its investments.

For the whole MyMap range, our investment process is simple: we aim to capture the investment upside, while managing the risks and costs associated with investing. That means we are focused on three fundamentals: risk, return and cost.

In an increasingly complex world, the solution we can offer – through our MyMap funds - is simplicity. A simple map charting toward a better future.

Risk Warnings

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.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of current or future results and should not be the sole factor of consideration when selecting a product or strategy.

Changes in the rates of exchange between currencies may cause the value of investments to diminish or increase. 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.

How it works

You’ve heard the saying, don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Because MyMap funds invest in a variety of assets, they provide more diversification than investing in a single asset class. And you don’t even have to pick what goes in the basket – we’ve done that for you.

In today’s economic environment, it’s unlikely that savings alone will be sufficient to support your financial goals. Investing has the potential to protect your wealth and help it grow over time.

Investing has the potential to generate inflation-beating returns. This may help protect your wealth from erosion, but also may help it grow over time.

A cost-effective investment approach

Under the hood of each MyMap fund is a collection of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and index funds.1 These are investments that aim to track the performance of a specific index. An index represents the total return of a particular group of securities – often stocks or bonds. All MyMap funds charge a low-cost 0.17% fee except for the MyMap 4 Select Income, which charges 0.28%.2

If you consider two funds that differ only by their fee, you’ll see the MyMap fund that charges a 0.17% fee grew to over £353,000, which is approximately £34,000 more than the average investment fund that charges 0.65%.3

Simple. Sustainable. Investing.

As more people look to align their investment and sustainability goals, there comes a need for more choice. We’ve built three ESG funds into the MyMap range: MyMap 3 Select ESG, MyMap 5 Select ESG, and MyMap 7 Select ESG

All three funds have a climate objective to:

  • Reduce carbon emissions by 30% compared to a portfolio that holds an equivalent ratin
  • Invest at least 80% of their government bonds with sovereigns with improved ESG credentials4

Results may differ from portfolios that do not apply similar ESG considerations to their investment process.
