iShares Core Global Aggregate Bond UCITS ETF SEK Hedged (Acc)
The Share Class is a share class of a Fund which aims to achieve a return on your investment, through a combination of capital growth and income on the Fund's assets, which reflects the return of the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Bond Index, the Fund's benchmark index (Index). The Share Class also aims to reduce the impact of exchange rate fluctuations between the Fund's underlying portfolio currencies and Swedish Krona on your returns. The Share Class, via the Fund, aims to invest so far as possible and practicable in the fixed income (FI) securities (such as bonds) that make up the Index and comply with its credit rating requirements, combined with foreign currency contracts for currency hedging. If the credit ratings of the FI securities are downgraded, the Fund may continue to hold them until they cease to form part of the Index and it is practicable to sell them. The Index measures the performance of global investment-grade debt (i.e. bond) markets and currently is made up of four regional indices (i.e. the Bloomberg Barclays US Aggregate Index, the Bloomberg Barclays Pan-European Aggregate Index, the Bloomberg Barclays Asian-Pacific Aggregate Index and the Bloomberg Barclays Canadian Aggregate Index) as well as other Bloomberg Barclays index-eligible securities not already included in these four indices. The FI securities that make up the Index may be issued or guaranteed by governments, public international bodies or companies and will pay income according to a fixed and/or floating rate of interest. The FI securities will, at the time of inclusion in the Index, be investment grade (i.e. meet a specified level of creditworthiness). The Fund uses optimising techniques to achieve a similar return to its Index. These may include the strategic selection of certain securities that make up the Index or other FI securities which provide similar performance to certain constituent securities. These may also include the use of financial derivative instruments (FDIs) (i.e. investments the prices of which are based on one or more underlying assets). FDIs (including FX forward contracts) may be used for direct investment purposes. The Fund may also engage in short-term secured lending of its investments to certain eligible third parties to generate additional income to off-set the costs of the Fund.
