SIP BlackRock UK Absolute Alpha

Underlying Fund

FE Crown Rating ( Underlying )

Fund Objective ( Underlying )

BlackRock UK Absolute Alpha Fund seeks to achieve a positive absolute return for investors and, as such, the Fund will not be managed against any UK equity index. The Fund will seek to achieve this investment objective by taking long positions and using derivatives to take synthetic long and synthetic short investment positions. The Fund will be managed with the aim of delivering absolute (more than zero) returns on a 12 month basis in any market conditions. However, an absolute return is not guaranteed over a 12 month or any period and the Fund may experience periods of negative return. The Fund’s capital is at risk. The Fund primarily aims to gain investment exposure to equities and equity-related securities of, or giving exposure to, companies incorporated or listed in the UK. In order to gain this exposure, the Fund invests primarily in derivatives, equities and equity-related securities and, when determined appropriate, cash and near cash. The Fund may also invest in other transferable securities, permitted moneymarket instruments, permitted deposits and units in collective investment schemes.
