A prospective investor in the iShares S&P CNX Nifty India Swap may be required at the time of acquiring shares (or subsequently) to represent that such investor is not an Indian Origin Restricted Entity and is not acquiring shares for or on behalf of an Indian Origin Restricted Entity. Shareholders in the iShares S&P CNX Nifty India Swap are required to notify iShares IV plc and its investment manager immediately in the event that they become Indian Origin Restricted Entities or hold shares for the benefit of Indian Origin Restricted Entities. Any person who breaches any of the above restrictions shall indemnify and hold harmless each of iShares IV plc and its manager and investment manager from any losses or claims suffered or incurred by any of them in connection with such breach.

Users of this website are required to notify BAUL immediately by email if any information which a user is able to access on this website would cause the user, BlackRock or any iShares product to be in breach of applicable laws or regulations. In such event, the user shall (a) stop accessing this website, (b) destroy immediately any such information (and all copies) which has been downloaded or printed by the user from this website, (c) disregard such information, and (d) treat such information as confidential and not disseminate it.
iShares products may not be suitable for all investors and BlackRock does not guarantee the performance of the iShares products. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. The value and price of shares or units or securities (which may trade in limited markets) in the iShares products and the income from them may fall as well as rise and an investor may not recover the full amount invested. Where an investor invests in an iShares product denominated in a currency other than that of the country in which the investor is resident, the return to the investor may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations.
Exchange rate movements can affect the value of investments involving exposure to foreign currencies.
Any projections or examples (including calculations used therein) set out in this website are for illustrative purposes only and are not guaranteed to be accurate, complete or up to date.
Tax levels, the tax status of the iShares products, the taxation of investors and any tax reliefs may change from time to time. Any change in the taxation legislation in any jurisdiction where an iShares product is registered, cross-listed, marketed or invested could affect the tax status of the iShares product, affect the value of the relevant iShares product’s investments in the affected jurisdiction, affect the relevant iShares product’s ability to achieve its investment objective, and/or alter the post tax returns to investors.The availability and value of any tax reliefs available to investors depend on the individual circumstances of investors. Any tax-related information in this website is not exhaustive and does not constitute legal or tax advice. Prospective investors are urged to consult their tax advisors with respect to their particular tax situations and the tax effects of an investment in the iShares products.
Important information about iShares products is contained in the relevant prospectuses of the iShares products, copies of which can be obtained on this website or from your broker or financial adviser. Please refer to the iShares products’ prospectuses for a full description of the risks of investing in the products.
Shares or securities of iShares products may be purchased or sold throughout the day on one or more stock exchanges (secondary market) through an authorised intermediary. Shares or securities of iShares products may only be subscribed or redeemed directly with the iShares funds or iShares Physical Metals plc (primary market) by authorised participants in very large creation / redemption sizes.
When making an investment in an iShares product, you are buying shares in or securities issued by a company that will be listed on one or more stock exchanges. The price of the shares or securities will be determined by supply and demand. Such price will not necessarily be the same as the value per share or security of that iShares product’s assets. At any time the share or security price may be at a discount or premium to the asset value. However, because of the exchange traded structure, it is expected that a significant discount or premium of price to asset value will not be sustainable over the long term.
Affiliated companies of BAUL may make markets in the securities of the iShares products. Further, BlackRock, its employees and other funds managed by BlackRock may from time to time acquire or hold securities or holdings in the underlying securities of, or options on, any security of the iShares products and may as principal or agent buy or sell securities.
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)
The capital return and income of each iShares fund are based on the capital appreciation and income on the securities it holds, less expenses incurred. Therefore, each iShares fund’s return may be expected to fluctuate in response to changes in such capital appreciation or income. Additionally, the securities in an equity benchmark index may under-perform fixed income investments and stock market investments that track other markets, segments or sectors different to that of an iShares fund. As foreign exchanges can be open on days when shares in an iShares fund are not priced, the value of the securities in an iShares fund’s portfolio may change on days when shareholders will not be able to purchase or sell an iShares fund’s shares.
Certain iShares funds may use derivatives, details of which will be set out in the relevant prospectuses. The use of derivatives involves special risks and the iShares funds may be exposed to credit risk with regard to parties with whom it trades.
An investment in an iShares fund often involves investing in international markets. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, international investments involve the risk of losing all or part of any capital from unfavourable fluctuations in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability in other nations. The value of investments in iShares funds investing in economies and markets which may be less developed than more established economies (including emerging markets), may be subject to greater volatility due to increased uncertainty as to how these markets operate and the possibility of lower trading volumes.
Dublin-domiciled iShares funds which include the term ‘swap’ in their names are swap based funds. These swap funds enter into fully funded swap agreements with counterparties to obtain the performance of the funds’ respective benchmarks. Swap transactions are subject to the risk that the counterparties may default on their obligations. If this were to occur, the relevant fund may sustain a loss. The swap funds intend to mitigate much of their credit risk exposure to each counterparty by obtaining collateral from the counterparty which will be held by a third party collateral agent. In the event of a default by a counterparty or collateral agent, the swap funds may still have some counterparty risk exposure to the defaulting counterparty or collateral agent respectively.
In some circumstances, counterparties can terminate the swap agreements early which may impact the returns of the swap funds. In addition, the counterparties may seek to pass on any additional costs relating to the hedging of their risk exposure under the swaps to the relevant fund. In the event that a swap fund is unable to enter into suitable swap arrangements or maintain swap arrangements on acceptable terms, the fund may not be able to achieve its investment objective and policy unless it is able to track its benchmark by other means.
Further, the counterparties to the swap agreements for the iShares S&P CNX Nifty India Swap require assurances in the swap agreements that iShares IV plc will not dispose of the swaps to an Indian Original Restricted Entity and that iShares IV plc will provide information on shareholders and beneficial owners of shares in the iShares S&P CNX Nifty India Swap to the counterparties in connection with such assurances. iShares IV plc may be unable to comply fully with such requirements as it has no control over the transfer of shares of the iShares S&P CNX Nifty India Swap on the secondary market and, as a consequence, it is possible that the counterparties may ultimately seek to terminate the swap agreements.
Exchange Traded Commodities (ETCs)
iShares Physical ETCs are exchange traded commodities and are neither fund nor exchange traded funds. The iShares Physical ETCs are series of secured metal-linked securities issued in the form of debt securities. Unlike Dublin-domiciled iShares funds which issue shares, the securities of all iShares Physical ETCs are issued in the form of debt securities which are listed and traded as non-equity securities.
Precious metal prices are generally more volatile than most other asset classes, making investment riskier and more complex than other investments. In addition, iShares Physical ETCs are limited recourse obligations which are payable solely out of the underlying secured property. If the secured property is insufficient, any outstanding claims will remain unpaid.
The content of this website is general in nature and is meant to inform investors, potential investors and their professional intermediaries of the existence of, and potential benefits of investing in, iShares products. However, this website is not intended to provide specific investment advice including, without limitation, investment, financial, legal, accounting or tax advice, or to make any recommendations about the suitability of iShares products for the circumstances of any particular investor. If you do require investment advice, please contact an independent broker or financial adviser. You should take appropriate advice as to any securities, taxation or other legislation affecting you personally prior to investing.
