* 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.
