Fund Description
The iShares Currency Hedged MSCI United Kingdom ETF seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of large- and mid-capitalization UK equities while mitigating exposure to fluctuations between the value of the British Pound and the U.S. dollar. The MSCI United Kingdom US Dollar Hedged Index represents a close estimation of the performance that can be achieved by hedging the currency exposure of its parent index, the MSCI UK Index, to the USD, the "home" currency for the hedged index. The index is 100% hedged to the USD by selling the GBP forward at the one-month Forward rate. The parent index is composed of large and mid cap stocks.
