Fund Aims

The investment strategy of the fund is to purchase units in the Blackrock Gold and General Fund. That fund aims to provide a return (generated through an increase in the value of the assets held by the Fund) (gross of fees) over the long term (5 or more consecutive years beginning at the point of investment) through investment in shares of companies related to gold mining, commodities and precious-metals. It tends to be volatile and is particularly suitable for diversification in a larger portfolio.

Important Information

Because of changes in exchange rates the value of your investment, as well as any money you take from it, can go down as well as up.

Source of portfolio data: FundsLibrary. Source of performance data: Financial Express (FE). We can’t predict the future. Past performance isn’t a guide to future performance. The figures shown are intended only to demonstrate performance history of the fund, after allowing for the impact of fund charges and further costs, but take no account of product charges, or any Annual Management Charge paid for by the deduction of units. Charges and further costs may vary in the future and may be higher than they are now. Fund performance is based upon the movement of the daily price and is shown as total return in GBP with net income reinvested. The value of your investment can go down as well as up so you might get back less than you put in.
