iShares Euro High Yield Corporate Bond UCITS ETF (IHYG)

iShares Markit iBoxx Euro High Yield Bond UCITS ETF is an exchange traded fund (ETF) that aims to track the performance of the Markit iBoxx EUR Liquid High Yield Index as closely as possible. The ETF invests in physical index securities. The Markit iBoxx EUR Liquid High Yield Index comprises the largest and most liquid fixed and floating rate sub-investment grade corporate bonds issued by both Eurozone and non-Eurozone issuers. Only euro denominated bonds with a minimum amount outstanding of €250 million are included in the index. New bonds that are considered for inclusion in the index must have a minimum maturity of 2 years and a maximum of 10.5 years. Bonds already included in the index are not subject to a minimum time to maturity rule and remain in the index until they mature provided that they fulfil the other selection criteria. For diversification purposes the weight of each issuer and country in the index is capped at 3% and 20% respectively. All bonds in the index must be rated sub-investment grade according to the methodology used by the index provider. If any bond becomes investment grade according to the methodology, or if Fitch, Moody's or S&P rate a bond as CC or lower, the bond will be removed from the index at the next rebalancing. iShares ETFs are funds managed by BlackRock. They are transparent, cost-efficient, liquid vehicles that trade on stock exchanges like normal securities. iShares ETFs offer flexible and easy access to a wide range of markets and asset classes.

* Annualised Securities Lending Return is calculated using unaudited 12 month net securities lending revenues to the fund divided by the average NAV of the fund over the same period. 60% of all securities lending revenues are paid directly into the fund, with BlackRock receiving 40% compensation which covers all operational costs. BlackRock’s policy is to disclose performance information quarterly subject to a one-month delay. This means that returns from 01 January 2011 to 31 December 2011 can be publicly disclosed from 01 February 2012. Annualised Securities Lending Return will not be displayed for the funds that have participated in securities lending for less than 12 months.
