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 globally at least 70% of its total assets in the equity securities (e.g. shares) of companies the main business of which is gold-mining. The Fund may also invest in equity securities of companies the main business of which is precious metal or mineral mining and base metal or mineral mining. The Fund does not hold physical gold or metal. 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 investment adviser has discretion to select the Fund's investments and in doing so may take into consideration the FTSE Gold Mines 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 US Dollar. Shares for this class are bought and sold in Euro. The performance of your shares may be affected by this currency difference. 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
