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 70% of its total assets in the equity securities (e.g. shares) of companies domiciled in, or the main business of which is in, Japan. Depending on market conditions, the Fund will aim to invest in equity securities of companies that are, in the investment adviser’s opinion, undervalued (i.e. their share price does not reflect their underlying worth) or have good growth potential. The investment adviser has discretion to select the Fund's investments and in doing so may take into consideration the MSCI Japan 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). The Fund’s base currency is Japanese Yen. Shares for this class are bought and sold in Euro. The performance of your shares may be affected by this currency difference. Your shares will be “hedged” with the aim of reducing the effect of exchange rate fluctuations between their denominated currency and the base currency of the Fund. The hedging strategy may not completely eliminate currency risk and, therefore, may affect the performance of your shares. 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
