Performance

Performance

  • Returns

The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Effective as of May 31, 2018, the performance information for periods prior to the inception date of the share class shows the performance of the Fund’s Institutional Shares. The performance of this share class would be substantially similar to Institutional Shares because this share class and Institutional Shares invest in the same portfolio of securities and performance would only differ to the extent that this share class and Institutional Shares have different expenses. For performance periods prior to May 31, 2018, the performance information for periods prior to the inception date of the share class shows the performance of the Fund’s Institutional Shares, adjusted to reflect the fees and expenses applicable to such share class. See the fund prospectus for more details.

Growth of Hypothetical $10,000 The growth of hypothetical $10,000 chart reflects a hypothetical $10,000 investment and assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Fund expenses, including management fees and other expenses were deducted.

The fund itself has not been rated by an independent rating agency. 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.

Notional value represents a fund’s use of derivatives, including but not limited to futures, options, and swaps. This value captures the fund exposures as if the derivative was replaced with the underlying asset and the corresponding financing or lending, such that all exposures sum to the net asset value. For non-derivatives, the market value and the notional value are identical.

Allocations are subject to change.
