Fund Objective

The BlackRock Americas Diversified Equity Absolute Return 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 equities and equity-related securities (including derivatives) of, or giving exposure to, companies incorporated or listed in the United States, Canada and Latin America (the “Americas”). The Fund will seek to achieve this investment objective by investing at least 70% of its total assets in equities and equity-related securities and, when determined appropriate, cash and near-cash instruments. The Fund will be highly diversified across the universe of equities in the Americas, whilst seeking to minimise net exposure to underlying equity markets within the region. In order to achieve the investment objective and policy, the Fund will invest in a variety of investment strategies and instruments.
