Fund objective
The BlackRock Impact World Equity Fund seeks to achieve exposure to equity securities with a measurable positive societal impact. The Fund will seek to achieve this investment objective by taking long and synthetic long exposures. The Fund will seek to gain at least 80% of its investment exposure directly through equities and equity-related securities (including derivatives) of, or giving exposure to, companies domiciled in or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in developed markets. The Fund will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing at least 80% of its total assets in equities and equity related securities (including derivatives) and, when determined appropriate, cash and near-cash instruments. In order to achieve its investment objective and policy, the Fund will invest in a variety of investment strategies and instruments. In particular, the Fund will use the BlackRock Impact Methodology (as described in the Glossary) and quantitative (i.e. mathematical or statistical) models in order to achieve a systematic (i.e. rule based) approach to stock selection. This means that stocks will be selected and weightings allocated based on their positive measurable societal impact and on forecasts of risk and transaction costs.
