      Portfolio analysis

      Characteristic Benchmark
      {{ item.text }} as of {{ item.asof }} {{ item.fund }} {{ item.benchmark }}

      Sustainability characteristics

      To be included in MSCI ESG Fund Ratings, 65% of the fund’s gross weight must come from securities covered by MSCI ESG Research (certain cash positions and other asset types deemed not relevant for ESG analysis by MSCI are removed prior to calculating a fund’s gross weight; the absolute values of short positions are included but treated as uncovered), the fund’s holdings date must be less than one year old, and the fund must have at least ten securities. For newly launched funds, sustainability characteristics are typically available 6 months after launch. MSCI Ratings are currently unavailable for this fund.

      Business involvement

      As of {{ asOf.productInvolvement }}

      Business Involvement metrics can help investors gain a more comprehensive view of specific activities in which a fund may be exposed through its investments.

      Business Involvement metrics are not indicative of a fund’s investment objective, and, unless otherwise stated in fund documentation and included within a fund’s investment objective, do not change a fund’s investment objective or constrain the fund’s investable universe, and there is no indication that an ESG or Impact focused investment strategy or exclusionary screens will be adopted by a fund. For more information regarding a fund's investment strategy, please see the fund's prospectus.

      Please refer to the Disclosure to review the MSCI methodology behind the Business Involvement metrics.

      {{ item.text }} {{ item.fund }}

      {{ msciBusinessInvolvementDisclaimer }}

      Business Involvement metrics are calculated by BlackRock using data from MSCI ESG Research which provides a profile of each company’s specific business involvement. BlackRock leverages this data to provide a summed up view across holdings and translates it to a fund's market value exposure to the listed Business Involvement areas above.

      Business Involvement metrics are designed only to identify companies where MSCI has conducted research and identified as having involvement in the covered activity. As a result, it is possible there is additional involvement in these covered activities where MSCI does not have coverage. This information should not be used to produce comprehensive lists of companies without involvement. Business Involvement metrics are only displayed if at least 1% of the fund’s gross weight includes securities covered by MSCI ESG Research.

      Sustainability Characteristics and Business Involvement metrics are updated monthly, subject to the availability of data. Sustainability Characteristics do not evaluate the ESG-related investment objectives of, or any ESG strategies used by, a fund and are not indicative of how well ESG factors are integrated by a fund. Providers other than MSCI ESG Research may also prepare ESG ratings or scores using their own methodologies, which may be different than the methodology used by MSCI ESG Research.

      MSCI - Controversial Weapons

      Percentage sum of issuers within the fund that have been identified by MSCI ESG Research as having controversial weapons involvement including cluster munitions, landmines, depleted uranium weapons, biological/chemical weapons, blinding lasers, non-detectable fragments and incendiary weapons. For further details regarding MSCI's methodology, see footnote 4 at the bottom of the page.

      MSCI - Nuclear Weapons

      Percentage sum of issuers within the fund that have been identified by MSCI ESG research as manufacturing nuclear weapons, including nuclear warheads, intercontinental ballistic missiles, and ballistic missile submarines, which are capable of the delivery of nuclear warheads. For further details regarding MSCI's methodology, see footnote 4 at the bottom of the page.

      MSCI - Civilian Firearms

      Percentage sum of issuers within the fund that have been identified as producing firearms and small arms ammunitions for civilian markets. For further details regarding MSCI's methodology, see footnote 4 at the bottom of the page.

      MSCI - Tobacco

      MSCI - UN Global Compact Violators

      Percentage sum of issuers within the fund that have been identified by MSCI ESG Research as failing to comply with the United Nations Global Compact Principles. For further details regarding MSCI’s methodology, see footnote 5 at the bottom of the page.

      MSCI - Thermal Coal

      Percentage sum of issuers within the fund that have been identified by MSCI ESG Research as earning >5% of total revenue from oil sands extraction. For further details regarding MSCI's methodology, see footnote 4 at the bottom of the page.

      In general, the values shown for an asset’s percentage weight (the “calculated value”) are based on a price provided by a third-party pricing vendor and do not reflect the impact of fair valuation, if applicable (the “vendor price”). The vendor price is not necessarily the price at which the Fund values the portfolio holding for the purposes of determining the Fund’s net asset value (the “valuation price”), and the calculated value may have been different if the valuation price were to have been used to calculate such values. The vendor price is as of the most recent date for which a price is available and may not necessarily be as of the date shown above.

      Where a Fund invests directly or indirectly in Russian equity securities, as well as American Depositary Receipts and Global Depositary Receipts evidencing ownership of Russian equity securities and for which trading has been suspended, the calculated values for such securities are based on the Fund’s valuation price.

      † Distributions by the Fund that are not paid in cash but result in additional units of the Fund. These distributions should be accounted for by investors for tax purposes by adding the distribution amount to the adjusted cost base of the units held.

      †† The exact tax treatment of the distributions for a calendar year is calculated after the Fund's tax year-end. As a result, investors will receive an official tax statement from their broker detailing the type of income they have to report for tax purposes for the entire year and not for each distribution.

      At least once each year, the Fund will distribute all net taxable income to investors. These distributions will either be paid in cash or reinvested in the Fund, as may be determined by BlackRock Asset Management Canada Limited from time to time. These distributions will consist primarily of distributions received from the securities held within the Fund less Fund expenses, plus any realized capital gains generated from securities transactions within the Fund.

      The amounts of past distributions are shown in the distributions section above. The characterization of distributions for tax purposes (such as dividends, other income, capital gains etc.) for each period will be reported only after the Fund's tax year end. Therefore, the above table showing the tax characteristics will be updated only once each tax year. For tax purposes, these amounts will be reported by brokers on official tax statements.
