BGF Global Allocation

Choosing a highly mixed portfolio

BGF Global Allocation Fund, a sub-fund of the SICAV/BEVEK investment fund under Luxembourg law BlackRock Global Funds (BGF), aims to maximise the return on your investment through a combination of capital growth and income on the Fund’s assets. 

 

  • Sub-Fund launch date

    3 January 1997

  • Class Launch date

    3 January 1997

  • Reference currency

    The reference currency is the euro.

  • For an investor looking for:

    • An exposure to a highly diversified mixed portfolio that invests across all regions, sectors and market capitalizations. The BGF Global Allocation Fund is a suitable solution for investors looking for a stable, core investment with the prospect of above-average return potential.

     

    The main risks for the Sub-Fund are :


    • Market risk: The value of equities and equity-related securities can be affected by daily stock market movements. Other influential factors include political, economic news, company earnings and significant corporate events.
    • Currency risk: Active management of currency exposure through derivatives make the Fund sensitive to changes in foreign exchange rates. If the currency exposures against which the Fund is hedged appreciates investors may not benefit from such appreciation.
    • Credit risk: The issuer of a financial asset held within the Fund may not pay income or repay capital to the Fund when due.
    • Counterparty risk: The insolvency of any institutions providing services such as safekeeping of assets or acting as counterparty to derivatives or other instruments, may expose the Fund to financial loss.
    • Liquidity risk: Lower liquidity means there are insufficient buyers or sellers to allow the Fund to sell or buy investments readily.
    • Non-performance risk: the return realised during a specific period may be positive or negative, depending on the fund's investment strategy. The non-performance risk is strongly linked to the market risk
    • Capital risk: No guarantee is provided as to the recovery of your initial investment.

    The occurrence of any of these risks may have an impact on the net asset value of your portfolio.

The net asset value is calculated in Belgium each bank working day. The net asset value is published every public banking business day in Belgium in the financial press, as well as on the BeAMA website (http://www.beama.be/en/nav). It is also available at the Management Company’s registered address and over the counter from your financial services provider.

A swing price may be applied. Swing pricing aims to reduce the dilution effect brought about when significant operations within a sub-fund compel its manager to buy or sell its underlying assets. These transactions give rise to transaction fees and taxes that have an effect on the fund’s value, as well as on all its investors. Where swing pricing is applied, the sub-fund’s net asset value is adjusted by a particular amount when the capital flow exceeds a certain threshold (the swing factor). This amount is designed to offset expected transaction fees resulting from the difference between incoming and outgoing capital. Swing pricing is only used on rare occasions, if at all.
