Fund Objective The investment objective of this Fund is to provide investors with a total return, taking into account both capital and income returns, which reflects the return of the FTSE BRIC 50 Index. In order to achieve this investment objective the investment policy of this Fund is to invest in a portfolio of equity securities that so far as possible and practicable consists of the component securities of the FTSE BRIC 50 Index, this Fund?s Benchmark Index. It is the intention of the Investment Manager to replicate the constituents of the Benchmark Index and therefore may invest up to 20% of net assets in shares issued by the same body in order to replicate its Benchmark Index. The limit may be raised to 35% for a single issuer when exceptional market conditions apply (as set out in section 4 of Schedule III). A substantial portion of this Benchmark Index?s constituents are GDRs and ADRs. GDRs and ADRs are negotiable certificates issued by depository banks and represent ownership of a company?s shares which can be listed and traded independently from the actual shares of the company. To assist in replicating of its Benchmark Index, a substantial portion of this Fund?s Investments will, therefore, be GDRs and ADRs. This Fund may invest in FDIs for direct investment purposes to assist in achieving its policy of replicating its Benchmark Index. For details regarding investment in FDIs please refer to the section headed ?Investment Techniques?. The Fund?s Investments, other than its Investments in open-ended collective investment undertakings, will normally be listed or traded on Regulated Markets set out in Schedule I. The Base Currency of iShares FTSE BRIC 50 is US Dollars ($).

Fund versus Morningstar Category
The value of the fund and the income from it can go down as well as up so you may get back less than you invested. If your fund invests in overseas markets, changes in currency exchange rates may affect the value of your investment. If your fund invests in small and emerging markets, these can be more volatile than other more developed markets. Past performance is not a guide to future returns.
For funds that invest in bonds, please be aware that the price of bonds is influenced by movements in interest rates, changes in the credit rating of bond issuers, and other factors such as inflation and market dynamics. In general, as interest rates rise the price of a bond will fall. The risk of default is based on the issuer's ability to make interest payments and to repay the loan at maturity. Default risk may therefore vary between different government issuers as well as between different corporate issuers.
Some of the performance and risk data presented may start before the share class was launched. If so, the data prior to the launch date of the share class is based on the fund or share class that has similar or higher charges, in order to provide an indication of longer term performance and risk. Please refer to the launch date and performance start date in the fund factsheet to determine whether the data has been extended.Past Performance and Risk & Volatility figures are presented in British Pounds Sterling (GBP). Fund returns are calculated on a Nav to Nav or Bid to Bid basis with income reinvested either after tax (for UK-domiciled funds) or gross of tax (for offshore funds). Performance figures include the effect of the OCF/TER. To cover distribution costs a separate service fee is now also charged on most funds, which is not included in the past performance figures. Consequently the past performance of the fund may be less than that shown on the chart due to the effect of the service fee.
