Fund Description

The Fund seeks to track the investment results of the Markit iBoxx Global Developed Markets ex-US High Yield Index (the Underlying Index), which is a rules-based index consisting of high yield (as determined by Markit Indices Limited (the Index Provider or Markit)) corporate bonds denominated in euros, British pounds sterling and Canadian dollars. The Underlying Index is designed to provide a broad representation of the global ex-U.S. dollar high yield corporate bond market. High yield bonds are also known as junk bonds. The Underlying Index is made up of corporate bonds that are issued by companies domiciled in countries classified as developed markets by the Index Provider. Bonds must be from issuers with at least $1 billion face value of debt outstanding. The Underlying Index is a market value weighted index with a cap on each issuer of 3%. There is no limit to the number of issues in the Underlying Index. As of October 31, 2023, a significant portion of the Underlying Index is represented by securities of
companies in the financials and telecommunications industries or sectors. The components of the Underlying Index are likely to change over time.
The Fund may invest in privately issued securities, including those that are normally purchased pursuant to Rule 144A or Regulation S promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the 1933 Act).
The Fund, under normal market conditions, will invest at least 40% of its assets in issuers organized or located outside the U.S. or doing business outside the U.S.
The maturities of the securities in the Underlying Index range from 1-15 years. As of October 31, 2023, the weighted average maturity of the securities in the Underlying Index was 7.13 years, and the weighted average life of these securities (which includes the impact of calls) was 3.61 years.
BFA uses an indexing approach to try to achieve the Fund’s investment objective. Unlike many investment companies, the Fund does not try to beat the index it tracks and does not seek temporary defensive positions when markets decline or appear overvalued.
Indexing may eliminate the chance that the Fund will substantially outperform the Underlying Index but also may reduce some of the risks of active management, such as poor security selection. Indexing seeks to achieve lower costs and better after-tax performance by aiming to keep portfolio turnover low in comparison to actively managed investment companies.
BFA uses a representative sampling indexing strategy to manage the Fund.
Representative sampling is an indexing strategy that involves investing in a representative sample of securities that collectively has an investment profile similar to that of an applicable underlying index. The securities selected are expected to have, in the aggregate, investment characteristics (based on factors such as market value and industry weightings), fundamental characteristics (such as return variability, duration (i.e., a security's price sensitivity to a change in interest rates), maturity or credit ratings and yield) and liquidity measures similar to those of an applicable underlying index. The Fund may or may not hold all of the securities in the Underlying Index.
The Fund will invest at least 80% of its assets in the component securities of the Underlying Index, and the Fund will invest at least 90% of its assets in fixed income securities of the types included in the Underlying Index that BFA believes will help the Fund track the Underlying Index. The Fund will invest no more than 10% of its assets in futures, options and swaps contracts that BFA believes will help the Fund track the Underlying Index as well as in fixed income securities other than the types included in the Underlying Index, but which BFA believes will help the Fund track the Underlying Index. Cash and cash equivalent investments associated with a derivative position will be treated as part of that position for the purposes of calculating the percentage of investments included in the Underlying Index. The Fund seeks to track the investment results of the Underlying Index before fees and expenses of the Fund.
The Underlying Index is sponsored by Markit, which isindependent of the Fund and BFA. The Index Provider
determines the composition and relative weightings of the securities in the Underlying Index and publishes information regarding the market value of the Underlying Index.
Industry Concentration Policy. The Fund will concentrate its investments i.e., hold 25% or more of its total assets) in a particular industry or group of industries to approximately the same extent that the Underlying Index is concentrated. For purposes of this limitation, securities of the U.S. government (including its agencies and instrumentalities), repurchase agreements collateralized by U.S. government securities, and securities of state or municipal governments and their political subdivisions are not considered to be issued by members of any industry.
