We have upgraded the Morningstar Analyst Rating™ for the BlackRock Japan Equity Tracker fund to Silver. The fund previously held a Bronze rating. The fund offers investors broad exposure to Japanese equity by tracking the FTSE Japan Index. Given its strong tracking ability and extremely competitive fees, it represents one of the most efficient vehicles through which investors can access Japanese equities. For these reasons we can have a strong conviction that over a full market cycle this tracker will comfortably beat the average fund in the Morningstar Japan Large-Cap Equity Category on a risk-adjusted basis.
