BlackRock UK Equity Tracker - Silver

FUND RESEARCH UPDATE: Fund Rating upgraded to Silver

Hortense Bioy, CFA 4 February, 2015 | 8:04PM

We have upgraded the Morningstar Analyst Rating™ for the BlackRock UK Equity Tracker fund to Silver. The fund previously held a rating of Bronze. The fund tracks the broad and diversified FTSE All-Share index. Given its strong tracking ability and low fees, it represents one of the most efficient vehicles through which investors can access UK equities. The FTSE All-Share has delivered consistent above-average risk-adjusted performance over the long term.  For these reasons we have a strong conviction that over a full market cycle this tracker will comfortably beat the average fund in the Morningstar UK Large-Cap Blend Equity Category on a risk-adjusted basis.
