Fund Profile

Category: SICAV

The Fund aims to maximise the return on your investment through a combination of capital growth and income on the Fund’s assets. The Fund invests at least 80% of its total assets in fixed income securities. These include bonds and money market instruments (i.e. debt securities with short term maturities). At least 70% of the Fund’s total assets will be invested in securities that are denominated in euro. The fixed income securities may be issued by governments and, government agencies of, and companies and supranationals (e.g. the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development) domiciled in, countries inside or outside of the Eurozone. At least 80% of the Fund’s total assets will be investment grade (i.e. meet a specified level of credit worthiness) at the time of purchase. The remainder may include investments with a relatively low credit rating or which are unrated. The investment adviser (IA) may use financial derivative instruments (FDIs) (i.e. investments the prices of which are based on one or more underlying assets) for investment purposes in order to achieve the investment objective of the Fund, and/or to reduce risk within the Fund’s portfolio, reduce investment costs and generate additional income. The Fund may, via FDIs, generate varying amounts of market leverage (i.e. where the Fund gains market exposure in excess of the value of its assets). The IA has discretion to select the Fund's investments and in doing so may take into consideration the Barclays Euro-Aggregate 500mm+ Bond Index. Recommendation: This Fund may not be appropriate for short-term investment. Your shares will be non-distributing (i.e. dividend income will be included in their value). Your shares will be denominated in Euro, the Fund's base currency. You can buy and sell your shares daily. The minimum initial investment for this share class is US$5,000 or currency equivalent. For more information on the Fund, share/unit classes, risks and charges, please see the Fund's prospectus, available on the product pages at www.blackrock.com
