BSF Emerging Markets Absolute Return

The BlackRock Emerging Markets Absolute Return Fund is a conservative equity long short strategy designed to generate positive absolute returns with low volatility. For many investors emerging markets are very much a beta play, however the managers of this strategy see things differently and focus on generating alpha from within these markets. Consequently the strategies typical net exposure is in the range of -10% to +20%. Since inception at the end of 2012 the strategy has generated annualised returns of 1.8% with a volatility of 4.8%, less than half the volatility of the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.
