Strategy And Objective

The investment objective of the blackRock low duration bond Portfolio (the low duration Fund or the Fund) is to seek to maximize total return,consistent with income generation and prudent investment management. The low duration Fund invests primarily in investment grade bonds and maintains an average portfolio duration that is between 0 and 3 years.The low duration Fund normally invests at least 80% of its assets in debt securities. The low duration Fund may invest up to 20% of its assets in non-investment grade bonds (commonly called high yield or junk bonds). The low duration Fund may also invest up to 25% of its assets in assets of foreign issuers, of which 10% (as a percentage of the Fund assets) may be invested in emerging markets issuers. up to 10% of the low duration Fund assets may be exposed to non-us currency risk. A bond of a foreign issuer, including an emerging market issuer, will not count toward the 10% limit on non-us currency exposure if the bond is either (i) us dollar-denominated or (ii) non-us dollar-denominated, but hedged back to us dollars.
