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. Diversification and asset allocation may not fully protect you from market risk.
*A mutual fund is a pooled investment fund that invests in securities like stocks, bonds, money market instruments, and other assets.

Capital at risk. All financial investments involve an element of risk. Therefore, the value of a client’s investment and the income from it will
vary and the client’s initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed. Diversification may not protect against market risk. Transactions in
shares of ETFs will result in brokerage commissions and will generate tax consequences. The tax treatment depends on the individual
circumstances of each client and may be subject to change in the future.

Description of Product Risks
Counterparty Risk
The insolvency of any institutions providing services such as safekeeping of assets or acting as counterparty to derivatives or other instruments, may expose the Share Class to financial
loss.
Credit Risk
The issuer of a financial asset held within the Fund may not pay income or repay capital to the Fund when due. If a financial institution is unable to meet its financial obligations, its
financial assets may be subject to a write down in value or converted (i.e. “bail-in”) by relevant authorities to rescue the institution.
Liquidity Risk
Lower liquidity means there are insufficient buyers or sellers to allow the Fund to sell or buy investments readily.
Concentration Risk
Investment risk is concentrated in specific sectors, countries, currencies or companies. This means the Fund is more sensitive to any localised economic, market, political or regulatory
events.
Emerging Markets Risk
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.
Equity Risk
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.
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Risk
The benchmark index only excludes companies engaging in certain activities inconsistent with ESG criteria if such activities exceed the thresholds determined by the index provider.
Investors should therefore make a personal ethical assessment of the benchmark index’s ESG screening prior to investing in the Fund. Such ESG screening may adversely affect the value
of the Fund’s investments compared to a fund without such screening.

RISKS
49
Non-Investment Grade Risk
Non-investment grade fixed income securities are more sensitive to changes in interest rates and present greater ‘Credit Risk’ than higher rated fixed income securities.
Smaller Companies Risk
Shares in smaller companies typically trade in less volume and experience greater price variations than larger companies.
Currency Risk
The Fund invests in other currencies. Changes in exchange rates will therefore affect the value of the investment.
Derivatives Risk
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.

Credit Risk The issuer of a financial asset held within the Fund may not pay income or repay capital to the Fund when due. If a financial institution is unable to meet its financial obligations, its financial assets may be subject to a write down in value or converted (i.e. “bail-in”) by relevant authorities to rescue the institution. Liquidity Risk Lower liquidity means there are insufficient buyers or sellers to allow the Fund to sell or buy investments readily. Concentration Risk Investment risk is concentrated in specific sectors, countries, currencies or companies. This means the Fund is more sensitive to any localised economic, market, political or regulatory events. Emerging Markets Risk 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. Equity Risk 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. Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Risk The benchmark index only excludes companies engaging in certain activities inconsistent with ESG criteria if such activities exceed the thresholds determined by the index provider. Investors should therefore make a personal ethical assessment of the benchmark index’s ESG screening prior to investing in the Fund. Such ESG screening may adversely affect the value of the Fund’s investments compared to a fund without such screening. EIIH1219E-1032866-48/52
  • 49. RISKS 49 Non-Investment Grade Risk Non-investment grade fixed income securities are more sensitive to changes in interest rates and present greater ‘Credit Risk’ than higher rated fixed income securities. Smaller Companies Risk Shares in smaller companies typically trade in less volume and experience greater price variations than larger companies. Currency Risk The Fund invests in other currencies. Changes in exchange rates will therefore affect the value of the investment. Derivatives Risk 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. EIIH1219E-1032866-49/52

Editor's Notes

  1. ISALL
  2. This leads us to how we think about themes – we have cyclical and structural themes. The various economic and monetary cycles, which have a clear influence on asset prices over the short to medium term
  3. Structural themes are longer term in nature and have irreversible consequences for the world– such as demographics and technological change. We call these drivers megatrends.   As an example I want you to think about the megatrend around technology.   I want you to think about how your life has changed over the last 10 years in terms of mobile usage and how it can change over the next 10 years.
  4. Consider the implications technology has had on urbanization through improving methods of transport. 150 years ago, horses were the main method of personal transport. Then came the invention of the combustion engine, leading to the motorcar. Transformative themes are by nature under-appreciated. Henry Ford actually did a survey in 1907of potential users on how to improve their transportation, and the answer was “we need a faster horse”.
  5. Yet, after thousands of years of human riding horses, it only took 20 years to make animals obsolete as a mode of transport. This is an example of unprecedented exponential growth.   Fast forward 100 years and if we think about the 2 megatrends: Climate Change and Technology. The questions we should ask are? Will our children own their own car? Will this car have a combustion engine? Will they even drive at all? And most importantly, how are we investing today to capture this major investment theme? Here again, buying Tesla would not be an optimal solution.
  6. So why is this relevant today? The main reason is because the megatrends are accelerating as we speak. Some transformative themes are playing out right now.
  7. Broader than Asia, the United Nations estimate that by 2030 2/3s of the Global population will live in cities This leads to massive construction and infrastructure opportunities. And these buildings and cities answer to a new set of rules, from energy efficiency, waste management, green infrastructure or connectivity. The companies positioned to lead in these new sectors, some of which did not exist 5 years ago, are very likely to do well in the next 10 to 20 years.

The companies positioned to lead in these new sectors, some of which did not exist 5 years ago, are very likely to do well in the next 10 to 20 years.
  9. Let us set the topic in perspective: sustainability is seemingly everywhere. We are witnessing an almost daily news stream that ranges from climate change through to modern slavery. Highlight Extinction Rebellion and its effects: In May the UK Parliament declared a national climate emergency and shortly thereafter the UK announced a commitment to net zero CO2 emissions by 2050 – the first of the G7 nations to do so. (use different examples depending on which client/region presenting to). Societies are changing, our environment is front of mind, regulation is emerging – the way you/our clients think about sustainable investing is also in flux. Sustainable Investing has the potential to transform our industry and make it better able to reflect what is already shaping our consumer choices and economies.
  10. • Also beyond consumer choices: sustainability related risks are high on the agenda of the global business community: the World Economic Forum’s 2019 Global Risks Report identified that over a ten-year horizon, extreme weather and climate-change policy failures are seen by the global business community as the gravest threats. (the GRR presents the results of the Global Risks Perception Survey, in which nearly 1,000 decision-makers from the public sector, private sector, academia and civil society assess the risks facing the world.)
  11. With so much interest in ESG as a “hot” topic the mushrooming of funds in the market is making some investors disoriented, an informed choice seems more difficult.
  12. We believe this is just the beginning, and expect Sustainable ETFs assets under management to rise in the next decade to more than $400 billion by 2028, with Europe representing more than 60% of that (i.e. 280bn).
  13.   Assets in dedicated sustainable investing strategies around the world have grown rapidly over the last few years. We are seeing a surge in clients’ interest in incorporating sustainability-related insights into their investments. This demand looks poised to accelerate — for all the reasons highlighted so far, driven by societal changes, increased regulation and investor focus, as well as greater investment conviction. 2019 has been a pivotal year for Sustainable ETFs, with this category gaining centre stage in our client conversation and flows. Over the last five years the Sustainable ETF industry globally has grown almost eight-fold, going from $5.7bn at the end of 2014 to $46.7bn at the end of October this year. Europe has been leading the charge on this trend with $26.1bn in ETF assets, attracting $12bn year to date only, meaning 1 in every 7$ going into UCITS ETFs have been in Sustainable ones. Flows are one side of the story of Sustainable ETFs going mainstream - the breadth of client adoption is the other one. What used to be an institutional trend across northern Europe is spreading to a much broader investor base geographically as well as by client type. While the bulk of the assets remain driven by asset owners transitioning from traditional benchmarks to ESG integrated ones, we see wealth distributors using sustainable building blocks to create standalone sustainable portfolios to meet increasing end-investor demand. There are countries, such as the Benelux region where this integration is happening across traditional portfolios as well, on the back of regulatory pressure relating to a rising number of Sustainable product labels and enhanced reporting requirements around investor preference with regard to sustainability (e.g. EU draft rules on how investment firms and insurance distributors should take sustainability issues into account when providing advice to their clients under MiFID II)
  14. A greater focus on value for money and the use of better technology is empowering people to question how effective their portfolios are in achieving their intended outcomes, also with regard to sustainability. Against this backdrop, sustainable investing should be as easy as ‘traditional’ investing, and more and more investors are discovering that ETFs can deliver beyond broad market exposures. Furthermore, ESG data metrics underpinning sustainable fund methodologies are expanding in scope and quality. We believe that ESG integration will become the norm for many investors, and that ETF that account for this will play a key role in bringing sustainable investing to the heart of portfolios.
  15. Sustainable investing is the combination of traditional investment approaches with environmental, social and governance (ESG) insights. Sustainable investing is used as an umbrella term for screened, ESG, thematic, and impact investing. BlackRock defines ESG investing as the practice of explicitly incorporating environmental, social, and governance information into investment decisions to enhance risk-adjusted returns. ESG information relates to an environmental, social or governance issue (e.g. climate risk, human rights or labour standards), and gives an indication of the preparedness, disclosure, or performance of a company on that ESG issue. ESG information can impact the long-term risk and return profile of investment portfolios and is meant to help investors understand ESG risks and opportunities that are not captured in traditional financial analysis. A risk is deemed material to an industry when it is likely that companies involved will incur substantial costs in connection with it (for example: regulatory ban on a key chemical input requiring reformulation). An opportunity is material to an industry when it is likely that companies could capitalize on it for profit (for example: opportunities in clean technology for the LED lighting industry).
  16. Sustainable investing is not just about avoiding certain exposures (e.g. screening out controversial weapons or tobacco investments) but increasingly also about advancing ESG objectives through ESG integration and a focus on financial materiality. Incorporating relevant sustainability insights can provide a more holistic view of the risks and opportunities associated with a given investment. In addition to consideration of ESG in the investment approach, we place emphasis on stewardship activities. Across all index strategies, where BlackRock portfolios aim to track the benchmark index, our stewardship efforts and engagement with portfolio companies are the mechanisms by which we can integrate sustainability insights consistent with our fiduciary role as a long-term investor. At BlackRock investment stewardship refers to engagement with public companies to promote corporate governance practices that are consistent with encouraging long-term value creation for shareholders in the company. Engagement and voting are important components of BlackRock’s stewardship activities. Stewardship is undertaken across all investment strategies, conventional and sustainability or impact, to promote sound business practices in relation to the material environmental and social factors in the operations that are likely to impact operational excellence and long-term financial performance. For clients invested in index strategies, engagement and voting is the only way we can signal support or concern to the management and boards of companies that we invest in on our clients’ behalf.
  17. ESG index investing provides transparent, rules-based, and cost-efficient exposure to companies with particular ESG characteristics. The objective of the index may be to avoid certain kinds of companies (“Avoid”). Alternatively, it may be to gain exposure to issuers with better ESG ratings, an ESG theme, or to generate positive environmental or social impact (“Advance”). ESG indexes can combine elements of Avoid and Advance approaches. From light green to dark green – from business screens to impact solutions: we have developed a consistent yet flexible framework to offer sustainable investment choices to our clients. The framework allows for a diversity of approaches across different investment styles and delivers on sustainable investment objectives for our clients – there is no one-size-fits all approach. This is the reason why we have 3 distinct sustainable solutions across market-cap based indices: Screened – an alternative to standard benchmarks – 7 screens Enhanced – allows clients to improve ESG credentials without straying too far from the standard benchmark SRI – ‘full ESG’, multiple exclusions, highest ESG scores, for those that believe fully in benefits of ESG and not constrained by higher tracking error
  18. There is an index out there for every sustainable investor, across both equities and fixed income, through to thematic impact investing - enabling clients to make an informed choice from a clear palette of products and create portfolios out of iShares sustainable building blocks!
  19. Smart Beta –
  20. The MSCI ESG Screened Indexes aim to represent the performance of a free float adjusted market capitalization weighted investment strategy that excludes companies: • that are associated with controversial, civilian and nuclear weapons and tobacco; • that derive revenues from thermal coal and oil sands extraction; or • that are not in compliance with the United Nations Global Compact Principles. [important to note: e.g. not all thermal coal exposure is removed – the revenue threshold is 5%]
  21. The MSCI ESG Enhanced Focus Indexes also include the 7 business screens (plus a controversy screen too) and are designed to maximize exposure to positive environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors while reducing the carbon equivalent exposure to carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases (GHG) as well as their exposure to potential emissions risk of fossil fuel reserves by (30%). These indexes also aims to maintain risk and return characteristics similar to those of their parent indexes.
  22. The MSCI SRI Indexes are free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted indexes that exclude companies that are inconsistent with specific values-based criteria focused on products with high negative social or environmental impact (the exclusion list is more exhaustive than for ESG Screened and ESG Enhanced). Additionally, these indexes are designed to represent the performance of companies that have high ESG ratings relative to their sector peers, to ensure the inclusion of the best-in-class companies from an ESG perspective. Further, these indexes aim to target sector weights that reflect the relative sector weights of the underlying MSCI Global Investable Market Indexes to limit the systematic risk introduced by the ESG selection process. Overall the MSCI SRI Indexes target coverage of 25% of the underlying MSCI parent index (“Parent Index”). The best-in-class approach is here taken to a new level.
  23. Client priorities can be balanced: Aligning screens Staying close to a benchmark And having an ESG exposure that also results in a carbon intensity reduction
  24. Improve ESG score vs parent benchmark Target a tracking error and a 30% carbon intensity reduction Including a product in the portfolio which includes but also goes beyond exclusions and embraces full ESG integration.
  25. Increase ESG score while increasing the number of business and controversy screens Select only those companies for inclusion in the fund which exhibit best-in-class ESG charactreristics. Reduce the carbon footprint vs the parent benchmark.
