BlackRock amends two iShares fund names


iShares, the Exchange Traded Funds (ETF) platform of BlackRock has amended the names of two of its funds, effective from today, 7 January.

The changes affect the name of the funds only, and will not impact any other aspect of the funds’ structure or investment approach.
iShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 fund becomes the iShares FTSE China 25 fund following the complete acquisition of the Xinhua Indices by FTSE on 16 December 2010. This change of ownership is also reflected in the index name, which will become FTSE China 25 Index.
iShares Markit iBoxx Euro High Yield fund becomes the iShares Markit iBoxx Euro High Yield Bond fund, bringing its name in line with the rest of the iShares bond fund range.
The iShares FTSE China 25 and iShares Markit iBoxx Euro High Yield Bond funds have assets under management of USD1.18bn and EUR352.10m respectively (at 31 December 2010).
