Investment Risks

The information contained on this website is general in nature and does not constitute professional advice or recommendation. Persons accessing this web-site are advised to obtain their own independent professional advice.

Investment involves risk. You are advised to carefully consider the risk factors set out in the prospectus for the relevant iShares Fund. The price of units or shares and the income from them may go down as well as up and any past performance is not indicative of future performance. BlackRock does not guarantee the performance of iShares Funds.

An investment in an iShares Fund often involves investing in international markets. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, international investments involve the risk of losing all or part of any capital from unfavourable fluctuations in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability in other nations. An investment in emerging markets also involves heightened other risks such as increased volatility and the possibility of lower trading volume.

When making an investment in iShares Funds, you are buying shares or units that will be listed on one or more stock exchanges. The price of the shares or units will be determined by supply and demand. It is not necessarily the same as the value per share or unit of that iShares Fund's assets. At any time the share price may be at a discount or premium to the asset value. However, because of the exchange-traded Fund structure, it is expected that a significant discount or premium of price to asset value will not be sustainable over the long term. Any projections or examples (including calculations used therein) are for illustrative purposes only and are not guaranteed to be accurate or complete. You should note that shares or units may only be redeemed directly from an iShares Fund by persons or entities registered as Participating Dealers in very large creation/redemption sizes. Listing of the shares or units of the iShares Funds does not guarantee a liquid market for them.

Important information about iShares Funds is contained in the prospectus for the relevant iShares Fund which is available upon request from BlackRock.

Passwords

You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to keep secure and confidential any password that we issue to you and not to let any other person use such password or let such password become public knowledge.

You agree to advise BlackRock immediately in the event that you become aware, or have reasonable cause to believe, that your password is no longer secure or is being used in breach of these terms and conditions. In this regard, you will provide all reasonable cooperation to BlackRock in seeking injunctive or other equitable relief. You agree to indemnify BlackRock for any losses, direct or indirect, which may be suffered by BlackRock or any of its affiliates arising from any failure by you to change, or your delay in changing, any password in such circumstances. BlackRock shall not be liable to you or any third party in the event of any unauthorised access being gained to any of your data as a result of your failure to change, or your delay in changing, any password in such circumstances. BlackRock may require you to replace any password issued to you at any time where BlackRock considers it necessary. You agree to discontinue use of the website if requested by BlackRock and confirmed by it in writing.

Should a password be issued to you for the use of your employees, these terms and conditions shall apply to your employee's use of the website and you shall be responsible for ensuring their compliance. Should any of your employees who has access to your password leave your employment, it shall be your responsibility and the responsibility of such employee (on a joint and several basis) to notify BlackRock by email prior to such employee leaving your employment and, where relevant, to change your password once such employee has left.

We may suspend and/or terminate (either in whole or in part) your use of any password provided to you, the website and/or this agreement immediately for any reason.
