■ BIM(UK)L Risk Grading: High Risk (on a scale of Low, Medium, Medium/High and High). This grading applies to Funds with emerging market, small capitalisation, or narrowly focused/concentrated equity mandates, which may restrict liquidity and increase the
volatility of returns. It should only be used for comparison with other BlackRock Global Funds (BGF) and, in particular, should not be used in comparison with Funds not provided by BIM(UK)L. The grading is indicative of the level of risk of a particular Fund and is
not supposed to be a guarantee of likely returns. If you are in any doubt as to the level of risk that you should take, you should seek Independent Advice. ■ This factsheet is available to Qualified Investors and Professionals in some jurisdictions on a
limited private placement basis subject to applicable laws and regulations in the country of distribution. The factsheet is confidential and should not be reproduced or distributed to persons other than the recipient. Performance is
shown as of the date listed on the top of the sheet on a NAV price basis with income reinvested. Prior to the introduction of single pricing on 4 February 2002, bid prices were used for Funds previously within the Mercury Selected Trust range. Performance
figures are calculated net of annual fees. The above Fund data is for information only. The number of shares quoted for each fund are indicative and actual numbers may fall outside of the ranges shown. BGF is an open-ended investment company established in
Luxembourg. Subscriptions in BGF are valid only if made on the basis of the current Prospectus, the most recent financial reports and the Key Investor Information Document which are available on our website. Fluctuation may be particularly marked in the case
of a higher volatility Fund and the value of an investment may fall suddenly and substantially. Investors should read the fund specific risks in the Key Investor Information Document. Past performance is no guide to future performance. The value of investments and
income from them can fluctuate and are not guaranteed. Rates of exchange may cause investments to go up or down. Investors may not get back the amount they in vest. BGF is only available for investment by non-US citizens who are not residents of the US.
It is not offered for sale or sold in the US, its territories or possessions. The Funds are not registered for sale to the public in all jurisdictions. The Fund Manager's report represents the views of BlackRock (Channel Islands) Limited, the Investment Manager of BGF.
