Equity

iShares Developed World 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.

The value of equities and equity-related securities can be affected by daily stock market movements. Other influential factors include political, economic news, company earnings and significant corporate events. Derivatives are highly sensitive to changes in the value of the asset on which they are based and can increase the size of losses and gains, resulting in greater fluctuations in the value of the Fund. The impact to the Fund can be greater where derivatives are used in an extensive or complex way.

All currency hedged share classes of this fund use derivatives to hedge currency risk. The use of derivatives for a share class could pose a potential risk of contagion (also known as spill-over) to other share classes in the fund. The fund’s management company will ensure appropriate procedures are in place to minimise contagion risk to other share class. Using the drop down box directly below the name of the fund, you can view a list of all share classes in the fund – currency hedged share classes are indicated by the word “Hedged” in the name of the share class. In addition, a full list of all currency hedged share classes is available on request from the fund’s management company

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.

MSCI ESG Quality Score - Peer Percentile The fund’s ESG Percentile compared to its Lipper peer group. as of 01/May/2020 46.40
Fund Lipper Global Classification The fund peer group as defined by the Lipper Global Classification. as of 01/May/2020 Equity Global
All data is from MSCI ESG Fund Ratings as of 01/May/2020, based on holdings as of 30/Nov/2019. 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.


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.
