Fund Objective

The BlackRock European Credit Strategies Fund seeks to achieve a positive absolute return for investors regardless of market movements. The Fund will seek to achieve this investment objective by taking long, synthetic long and synthetic short investment exposures. The Fund will seek to gain at least 70% of its investment exposure through fixed income transferable securities and fixed-income related securities (including derivatives) issued by, or giving exposure to, companies, governments and agencies and denominated in European currencies or of issuers domiciled in, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in Europe. Currency exposures and interest rate risks are normally hedged. In order to achieve the investment objective and policy the Fund will invest in a variety of investment strategies and instruments. It intends to take full advantage of the ability to invest in derivatives providing synthetic long and/or synthetic short positions with the aim of maximising positive returns.
