4 Objective and Characteristics of the Fund Objective of the Fund ishares Core TOPIX ETF aims to achieve a Net Asset Value per unit of the Fund ( NAV ) that closely corresponds to the movement of the Tokyo Stock Exchange Stock Price Index (TOPIX) by investing mainly in shares of the stocks constituting and determined to constitute the Tokyo Stock Exchange Stock Price Index (TOPIX) (the Index or the Benchmark ). Characteristics of the Fund While the Fund is an open-type equity investment trust, its concept is to physicalise Index by utilising functions of an investment trust. Its product design is different from other ordinary investment trusts from the following viewpoints. 1. Units of the Fund ( Units ) are listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Units of the Fund can be traded at any time on the TSE. Units may be traded in blocks of 1 unit. Type 1 financial instruments firms engaged in trading may determine their trading commissions using multipliers that they decide on their own. The method of trading is the same as that of equity trading. For further information, please contact type 1 financial instruments business firm who are the members of the TSE. 2. The minimum number of units is limited to an additional creation or redemption. Additional creation and redemption are limited to those for amounts required at least to create a portfolio reflecting the Index so that the Fund s performance can closely correspond to the movement of the Index. Additional creation and redemption are done by unit called a creation unit. The creation unit is a unit displayed by the number of Units that the management company determines to create and redeem these rights. The management company also determines the number of Units corresponding to one creation unit every business day. 3. The constituent stocks of the Index may be used for additional creation and redemption. Stocks constituting the Index (the Index ETF Constituent Stocks ), as well as cash, which are necessary for the creation or redemption of one creation unit, are determined by the management company as a portfolio composition file (the PCF ), and presented to authorised participants. If the Fund s market price of Unit on the stock exchange deviates from its NAV, smooth price formulation on the stock exchange can be expected with reasonable arbitration that can shrink such deviation. *The authorised participants shall be the type I financial instruments firms that are designated by the management company as persons to apply for the creation of the Units and the redemption. (A) Additional creation Investors may create Units by contributing Index ETF Constituent Stocks and cash as provided for in the PCF. If an investor is an issuer of shares constituting Index ETF Constituent Stocks, an amount equivalent to the total market value of such stocks included in the total market value of Index ETF Constituent Stocks, as well as an amount equivalent to expenses necessary to acquire such stocks as trust assets (up to 0.2% of such total market value), will be paid to the authorised participants in cash, instead of such stocks. (B) Redemption Investors who own more than certain number of Units may redeem them in exchange for an equivalent amount of Index ETF Constituent Stocks included in trust assets. The Fund may conduct stock lending. In this case, the Fund shall delegate authority to BlackRock Institutional Trust Company, N.A. in whole or in part to give instructions in respect of stock lending. Investment Management Structure - Fund investment, management, and relevant roles are separated under the internal rules. - The management company s investment management division controls the Fund s investment management. - The management company has established an internal audit division, as well as a division giving feedback to relevant divisions after monitoring fund investment statuses, risk conditions and others. It has also established a section (function) to confirm whether investments are made in accordance with the investment policy of each fund. Such confirmation is conducted by holding Investment Committee Meetings, etc. 3

5 - The Stock Index Investment Division (approximately 4 persons) will be responsible for this Fund. * The Fund s investment management structure may be changed in the future. Investment Restrictions In principle, the ratio of investment in assets other than stocks shall be less than 50% of the total amount of the trust property. In principle, no investment will be made in assets denominated in foreign currencies. Distribution Policy In principle, the aggregate of dividend income (meaning the dividends, fees for loan securities and other similar incomeless interest on payments) after deduction of the expenses is distributed semiannually at the end of each financial period (February 9 and August 9, in principle). However, such distribution in the future, as well as its amount, is not guaranteed. 4

6 Investment Risk Factors that contribute to fluctuations in the NAV of the Fund The NAV of the Fund is affected by the fluctuations of the invested securities held for the account of the Fund. All profits and losses arising from investment management of these trust asset investments are attributed to the investors. Accordingly, the principal amount of the Fund and profits arising from these investments are not guaranteed. Investors may incur a loss and the value of their investment principal may fall below its original principal amount as the result of a decline in the NAV. Investment trusts are different from bank deposits. The Fund s major risks are as follows: - Risk of Investing in Domestic Equity Securities The Fund primarily invests in common stocks of companies based in Japan. Accordingly, the performance of the Fund is affected by fluctuations in stock prices and the amounts of dividends received from the issuers that are influenced by Japanese economic and market conditions as well as their management and financial situations. - Securities Lending Risk Lending of securities involves counterparty risk, which is the risk of contractual default by the counterparty due to its insolvency or other events, and the Fund may suffer losses in such cases. Other considerations The provision stipulated in Article 37-6 of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act ( cooling-off period ) is not applicable to the Fund s transactions. Considerations regarding profit distribution - Distribution is paid out of the Fund s net assets and is different from interest earned on bank deposits. Thus, the Fund s NAV declines by the distribution amount when it pays out distribution. - The distribution amount is not always the same as income earned by the Fund during each financial period. Risk Management Framework The management company places an emphasis on risk oversight, and risks are managed using its proprietary system. More specifically, Fund s investment risk is measured and analysed, and investment restrictions are monitored by an independent risk management department. This department confirms that the Fund s investment risk profile meets the investment guideline, and gives feedback to investment teams and other relevant departments, with internal sharing of relevant results. Additionally, the management company s operational risks are clearly defined in operational guidelines, and managed accordingly. 5

22 Part II. Fund Information Section 1. Status of the Fund 1. Characteristics of the Fund (1) Purpose and Basic Characteristics of the Fund (A) ishares Core TOPIX ETF (the Fund ) aims to achieve the Net Asset Value per unit of the Fund ( NAV ) that closely corresponds to the movement of the Tokyo Stock Exchange Stock Price Index (TOPIX) by investing mainly in shares of the component stocks of the Tokyo Stock Exchange Stock Price Index (TOPIX) (the Index or Benchmark ). It basically incorporates or is determined to incorporate shares of all constituents of the Index. The management company is entitled to add to the trust property up to a ceiling of 10 trillion yen ( 10,000,000,000,000) in securities and cash, and is entitled, subject to consent of the trustee company, to change the said ceiling. (B) Predominant feature of the Fund The Fund is an open-ended and subsequently offered equity investment trust provided under the concept that investment trust functions can be used to make the Index spot tradable. Its product design is different from other ordinary investment trusts from the following viewpoints: 4. Units of the Fund ( Units ) are listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. The Units of the Fund can be traded on the Tokyo Stock Exchange at any time. Units may be traded in blocks of 1 unit. Type I financial instruments business firms engaged in trading may determine their trading commissions using multipliers that they decide on their own. The method of trading is as a general rule the same as that of equity trading. For further information, please contact the relevant type I financial instruments business firm which is a member of the Tokyo Stock Exchange. 5. Additional creation and redemption are limited to those involving a certain minimum number of units. Additional creation and redemption are limited to those for an amount at least equal to the amount required to create a portfolio reflecting the Index so that the Fund s performance can closely correspond to the movement of the Index. Additional creation and redemption are done by a unit called a creation unit. The creation unit is a unit displayed by the number of Units that the management company determines to create and 21

23 redeem these rights. 6. The constituent stocks of the Index may be used for additional creation and redemption. The constituent stocks of the Index (the Index ETF Constituent Stocks ), as well as cash, which are necessary for the creation or redemption, are determined by the management company as a portfolio composition file (the PCF ), and presented to the Authorised Participants. If the market price on the stock exchange of a Fund s Unit deviates from its NAV, smooth price formulation on the stock exchange can be expected with reasonable arbitration that can shrink such deviation. 7. The Fund may carry out stock lending. In this case, the Fund will delegate all or part of the authority related to the instructions for stock lending to BlackRock Institutional Trust Company, N.A.
