Fund Description
The iShares Fallen Angels USD Bond ETF (the Fund ) seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of U.S. dollar-denominated, high yield corporate bonds that were previously rated investment grade. Bonds are market value weighted with a 3% cap on each issuer. The bonds eligible for inclusion in the Underlying Index are U.S. dollar-denominated corporate bonds that: (i) are issued by companies domiciled in countries classified as developed markets by the index provider (based primarily on World Bank income classifications); (ii) have an average rating of below-investment grade (as determined by the Index Provider); (iii) previously had an average rating of investment grade; (iv) have at least $150 million of outstanding face value;(v) have a fixed-rate coupon; and (vi) have at least one year to maturity. In determining whether a bond has an average rating of investment grade or below-investment grade, ratings from Moody s Investors Services ( Moody s ), Standard & Poor s Ratings Services and Fitch Ratings, Inc. ( Fitch ) are considered. Securities in the Underlying Index must be rated below-investment grade (lower than BBB- by Standard & Poor s Ratings Services and Fitch, or Baa3 by Moody s) using the middle rating of Moody s, Standard and Poor s Ratings Services, or Fitch after dropping the highest and lowest available ratings. When a rating from only two agencies is available, the lower ( more conservative ) rating is used. When a rating from only one agency is available, that rating is used to determine eligibility in the Underlying Index. If an issue is unrated, the Index Provider may consider expected ratings and/or issuer-level ratings adopted by a ratings agency.
