Fixed Income

iShares Emerging Markets Government Bond Index Fund (IE)

Overview

Important Information: Capital at Risk. All financial investments involve an element of risk. Therefore, the value of your investment and the income from it will vary and your initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed.

Emerging markets are generally more sensitive to economic and political conditions than developed markets. Other factors include greater 'Liquidity Risk', restrictions on investment or transfer of assets and failed/delayed delivery of securities or payments to the Fund. Changes to interest rates, credit risk and/or issuer defaults will have a significant impact on the performance of fixed income securities. Noninvestment grade fixed income securities can be more sensitive to changes in these risks than higher rated fixed income securities. Potential or actual credit rating downgrades may increase the level of perceived risk. Fixed income securities issued or guaranteed by government entities in emerging markets generally experience higher ‘Credit Risk’ than developed economies.

Sustainability Characteristics

Sustainability Characteristics

Sustainability Characteristics can help investors integrate non-financial, material sustainability considerations into their investment process. These metrics enable investors to evaluate funds based on their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities. This analysis can provide insight into the effective management and long-term financial prospects of a fund.


The metrics below have been provided for transparency and informational purposes only. The existence of an ESG rating is not indicative of how or whether ESG factors will be integrated into a fund. The metrics are based on MSCI Fund Ratings and, unless otherwise stated in Fund documentation and included within a Fund’s investment objective, ESG integration does not change a Fund’s investment objective or constrain the Investment Manager’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.


Review the MSCI methodology behind the Sustainability Characteristics, using links below.

MSCI ESG Fund Rating (AAA-CCC) as of 01/Oct/2020 BB
MSCI ESG Quality Score (0-10) as of 01/Oct/2020 3.21
MSCI ESG Quality Score - Peer Percentile as of 01/Oct/2020 49.87
MSCI ESG % Coverage as of 01/Oct/2020 93.02
Fund Lipper Global Classification as of 01/Oct/2020 Bond Emerging Markets Global HC
MSCI Weighted Average Carbon Intensity (Tons CO2E/$M SALES) as of 01/Oct/2020 1.00
Funds in Peer Group as of 01/Oct/2020 385
All data is from MSCI ESG Fund Ratings as of 01/Oct/2020, based on holdings as of 30/Apr/2020. As such, the funds sustainable characteristics may differ from MSCI ESG ratings from time to time.

To be included in MSCI ESG Fund Ratings, 65% of the fund’s underlying holdings (excluding cash positions) must be covered by MSCI ESG Research, 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.

Business Involvement

Business Involvement

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


Transparency on Business Involvement metrics is not indicative of a fund’s investment objective, and, unless otherwise stated in Fund documentation and included within a Fund’s investment objective, ESG integration does not change a Fund’s investment objective or constrain the Investment Manager’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.


Review the MSCI methodology behind the Business Involvement metrics using links below.

MSCI - Controversial Weapons as of 30/Sep/2020 0.00%
MSCI - UN Global Compact Violators as of 30/Sep/2020 2.46%
MSCI - Nuclear Weapons as of 30/Sep/2020 0.00%

MSCI - Oil Sands as of 30/Sep/2020 0.01%
MSCI - Tobacco as of 30/Sep/2020 0.00%
MSCI Business Involvement % Coverage as of 30/Sep/2020 13.41%
Business Involvement exposures shown above for Thermal Coal and Oil Sands are calculated and reported for issuers within the fund that generate more than 5% of revenue from thermal coal mining or oil sands extraction, as defined by MSCI ESG Research. For the exposure to issuers within the fund that generate any revenue from thermal coal mining or oil sands extraction (at a 0% revenue threshold), as defined by MSCI ESG Research, it is as follows: Thermal Coal 0.23% and for Oil Sands 1.18%.

Business Involvement metrics are calculated using MSCI ESG Research which provides a profile of each company’s specific business involvement. BlackRock leverages this research 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.
