Fund Objective

The BlackRock European Opportunities Extension Fund seeks to maximise total returns through the use of an extension strategy.Use of an extension strategy means that in addition to having up to 100% of the Fund’s assets exposed to equity securities via long and/or synthetic long positions, the intention is that it will enter into synthetic short positions in order to achieve additional investment exposure. The proceeds from those synthetic short positions will be used to buy additional synthetic long positions (broadly in the same proportion as the short positions it holds).The Fund will seek to gain at least 70% of its investment exposure to companies domiciled in, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in Europe. The Fund will seek to achieve this investment objective by investing at least 70% of its total assets in equities and equityrelated securities (including derivatives) and, when determined appropriate,cash and near-cash instruments. At least 50% of the Fund’s investment exposure will be to small and mid capitalisation companies. Small and mid capitalisation companies are considered companies which, at the time of purchase, form the bottom 30% by market capitalisation of European exchanges.In order to achieve the investment objective and policy, the Fund will invest in a variety of investment strategies and instruments. It intends to take full advantage of the ability to invest in derivatives providing synthetic long and/or synthetic short positions with the aim of maximising positive returns.
