Expenses are as of the most current prospectus. The Net Expense Ratio does not include a voluntary cap of 0.50% on Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses (excluding Dividend Expense, Interest Expense, Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses and certain other Fund expenses as a percentage of average daily net assets). The voluntary waiver or reimbursement may be reduced or discontinued at any time without notice. BlackRock may contractually agree to waive or reimburse certain fees until a specified date. Contractual waivers are terminable upon 90 days’ notice by a majority of the funds non-interested trustees or by a vote of the majority of the outstanding voting securities of the fund. The investment advisor and/or other service providers may also voluntarily agree to waive certain fees and expenses which can be discontinued at any time without notice. When waivers or reimbursements are in place, the operating expenses are reduced and total returns to the shareholder in the fund increase. Please see the prospectus for additional information.

The "Other Instrument – Note" category represents investment grade corporate bonds. The “Other Repurchase Agreement” category represents repurchase agreements backed by non-government securities, and any repurchase agreements not categorized as U.S. Treasury or U.S. Government Agency.
Sector exposure is calculated by aggregating the percent par of individual securities in the portfolio by security type. BlackRock uses a proprietary process to determine the security type of individual securities, by conducting a thorough analysis of the issuer/obligor, including but not limited to any support providers or enhancers. The values reported include cash, accrued income, and/or payables/receivables which may result in negative weightings from specific circumstances (including timing differences between trade and settle dates of securities purchased by the funds). Allocations are subject to change.

For issuers that don’t have a short term rating their issuer or guarantor long term equivalent would have a rating of BBB-, or equivalent, or higher by at least one nationally recognized statistical rating organization.

Credit quality ratings on underlying securities of the fund are received from S&P, Moody’s and Fitch and converted by BlackRock 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. The values reported include cash, accrued income, and/or payables/receivables which may result in negative weightings may result from specific circumstances (including timing differences between trade and settle dates of securities purchased by the funds).
