Fund Description

Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities and related derivative instruments with similar economic characteristics. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by employing an event driven strategy, primarily investing in companies that have announced a material change or in companies that BlackRock expects to undergo a material change. A material change that could impact the price of securities for purposes of the Fund’s investment strategies is referred to herein as a “catalyst.” The Fund focuses on identifying investments that have a sufficiently defined catalyst. These catalysts span a broad spectrum and include, for example, announced mergers and acquisitions, spinoffs and split-offs, financial or strategic restructurings, management changes, synergistic acquisitions, as well as other transformative events. The intended goal of the Fund is to profit when the price of a security changes to reflect more accurately the likelihood and potential impact of the occurrence, or non-occurrence, of the extraordinary event. This can be done by taking a long position in a security or other financial instrument that is believed to be underpriced or a short position in a security or other financial instrument that is believed to be overpriced. The Fund generally maintains long and short positions primarily through the use of swap agreements and other derivative instruments, although the Fund may also take long and short positions directly. At times, the Fund may have significant short positions in equity securities and equity-related instruments.
Subject to certain conditions being met in the future, the Fund may seek long positions primarily through direct positions in equity securities rather than through swap agreements and other derivative instruments. Such conditions would include, among other things, the establishment of an information barrier between the Fund’s portfolio management team and other portfolio management teams at BlackRock. If established in the future, the utilization of an information barrier will limit the ability of the Fund’s portfolio management team to have interactions with other teams within BlackRock.
The Fund normally invests in both U.S. and non-U.S. securities. Non-U.S. securities may be denominated in either U.S. dollars or foreign currencies. The Fund may invest in securities of issuers of any market capitalization.
The Fund’s investment in equity securities may include common stock, preferred stock, securities convertible into common stock, non-convertible preferred stock and depositary receipts. The Fund may gain exposure to equity securities through derivatives.
The Fund may invest up to 20% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in fixed-income securities and related derivative instruments with similar economic characteristics. The Fund’s investment in fixed-income securities may include fixed and floating rate corporate bonds and municipal securities. The Fund may invest in
debt securities of any credit quality, as determined by Fund management, which may include high yield securities (commonly called “junk bonds”).
The Fund may invest in derivatives, including but not limited to, total return swaps (some of which may be referred to as contracts for difference), credit default swaps, futures, options and foreign exchange transactions, for hedging purposes, as well as to enhance the return on its portfolio investments. There is no limit to the Fund’s ability to invest in derivatives, except as may be limited by requirements of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), and at times the Fund may utilize derivatives to a significant extent.
The Fund may also invest in indexed and inverse securities.
When consistent with the Fund’s investment objective, the Fund’s investments may include short-term investments such as cash and cash equivalents, U.S. Government and agency securities, money market funds (including funds that may be affiliated with or sponsored or managed by BlackRock), commercial paper, certificates of deposit and other bank deposits and bankers’ acceptances.
The Fund may invest in securities of companies without an identified catalyst to hedge unwanted exposures to an industry or the market as a whole.
The Fund may engage in active and frequent trading of portfolio securities to achieve its primary investment strategies.
