Fund Objective

BlackRock UK Absolute Alpha Fund seeks to achieve a positive absolute return for investors. The Fund invests primarily in a portfolio of equities and equity-related securities (including derivatives) of companies incorporated or listed in the UK, although from time to time cash and near cash may be held. The Fund may also invest in other transferable securities, permitted money market instruments, permitted deposits and units in collective investment schemes. The fund will take full advantage of the ability to invest in derivatives providing both long and synthetic short positions principally through the use of contracts for difference.
