The iShares Edge MSCI World Multifactor UCITS ETF is an exchange traded fund (ETF) that 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 MSCI World Diversified Multiple-Factor Index, the Fund's benchmark index. The Fund invests in equity securities (e.g. shares) that, so far as possible and practicable, make up the benchmark index. The Index aims to reflect the performance characteristics of a subset of equity securities (e.g. shares) within the MSCI World Index ('Parent Index'), which are selected and weighted on account of their relatively high aggregate exposure to four 'style' factors: The constituents of the Index are selected from the Parent Index using the index provider's model to maximize the exposure to the four targeted style factors while maintaining market risk similar to the Parent Index. iShares ETFs are funds managed by BlackRock. They are transparent, cost-efficient, liquid vehicles that trade on stock exchanges like normal securities. iShares ETFs offer flexible and easy access to a wide range of markets and asset classes.
