iSHARES PLC

Background iShares public limited company (the “Company”) is organised as an open-ended Investment Company with variable capital (an "Investment Company"). The Company was incorporated in Ireland on 21 January 2000 with limited liability and segregated liability between its Funds and is organised under the laws of Ireland as a Public Limited Company (“PLC”) pursuant to the Companies Act 2014 (as amended) and the European Communities (Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities) Regulations, 2011 (as amended) (the “UCITS Regulations”) and is regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland ("CBI"). The term “Fund” shall be deemed to mean either a fund of the Company, or if the context so requires, the Manager or its delegate acting for the account of the relevant Fund. The term “BlackRock” is used to represent BlackRock Advisors (UK) Limited. The investment objectives and policies of each Fund are set out in the prospectus. The Company is structured as an umbrella Fund and comprises separate Funds (“Funds”) of the Company. Each Fund of the Company comprises a distinct portfolio of Investments. The shares of each Fund may be issued with different rights, features and on different terms and conditions to those of other Funds. Shares of a Fund may be divided into different share classes with different dividend policies, currency hedging and valuation currencies and may therefore have different fees and expenses. A currency hedged share class is a share class of a Fund which allows the use of hedging transactions to reduce the effect of exchange rate fluctuations. Unhedged share classes are also available to investors. The Company may issue currency hedged share classes in Funds that are not currency hedged Funds. Currency hedged Funds are identified on the Fund details table on pages 5 and 6. While assets and liabilities that are specific to a share class within a Fund would be attributable to (and should be borne by) only that share class, there is no segregation of liabilities between share classes as a matter of Irish law. Due to the lack of segregation of liabilities, there is a risk that the creditors of a share class may bring a claim against the assets of the Fund notionally allocated to other share classes. The financial instruments and risks section of the financial statements provides more details on the management of foreign currency risk in relation to the currency hedged share classes. The Investment Manager may use derivatives (for example, forward currency contracts, futures contracts, options and swaps, or such other instruments as are permitted) to hedge the rate of exchange between the currency of all or some of the currencies in which the assets of a Fund (including cash and income) are denominated and the share class valuation currencies. The transactions, costs and related liabilities and benefits arising from instruments entered into for the purposes of hedging the currency exposure for the benefit of any particular currency hedged share classes shall be attributed only to the relevant currency hedged share classes. Currency exposures of different share classes may not be combined or offset and currency exposures of the assets of a Fund may not be allocated to separate share classes.

Changes to the Company On 31 May 2018, an updated prospectus was issued by the Company to revise the Total Expense Ratio ("TER") for iShares Core MSCI EM IMI UCITS ETF from 0.25% to 0.18% for both the USD (Acc) and USD (Dist) classes.

iSHARES PLC INTERIM REPORT

iSHARES PLC

Background (continued) Potential implication of Brexit In a referendum held on 23 June 2016, the electorate of the United Kingdom ("UK") resolved to leave the European Union ("EU"). The result has led to political and economic instability and volatility in the financial markets of the UK and more broadly across Europe. It may also lead to weakening in consumer, corporate and financial confidence in such markets as the UK negotiates its exit from the EU. The longer term process to implement the political, economic and legal framework between the UK and the EU is likely to lead to continuing uncertainty and periods of exacerbated volatility in both the UK and in wider European markets. This mid to long term uncertainty may have an adverse effect on the economy generally and on the ability of the Company and its investments to execute their respective strategies and to receive attractive returns, and may also result in increased costs to the Company.

Fund details There were 39 Funds in operation at 31 August 2018. The investment objective of the Funds is to provide investors with a total return, taking into account the capital and income returns, which reflect the total returns of the respective benchmark listed in the table below and overleaf:

Investment Manager’s report INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE The investment objective of the Funds is to provide investors with a total return, taking into account the capital and income returns, which reflect the total returns of the respective benchmark listed in Fund details in the Background section.

FUND PERFORMANCE AND TRACKING ERROR The Fund performance figures are the aggregated net monthly returns based on the Net Asset Value ("NAV") calculated in accordance with the prospectus for the financial period under review. Due to Financial Reporting Standard ("FRS") 102 requirements which apply to the financial statements, there may be differences between the NAV per share as recorded in the financial statements and the NAV per share calculated in accordance with the prospectus. The returns are net of the TER. Realised tracking error is the annualised standard deviation of the difference in monthly returns between a Fund and its benchmark index. Tracking error shows the consistency of the returns relative to the benchmark index over a defined period of time. Tracking error is based on the NAV calculated in accordance with the prospectus. Anticipated tracking error is based on the expected volatility of differences between the returns of a Fund and the returns of its benchmark index. For physically replicating Funds, the investment management approach is to buy a portfolio of securities that as far as practicable consist of the securities that make up the benchmark index, in similar proportion to the weights represented in the benchmark index. For non-replicating Funds, the investment management approach aims to match the main risk characteristics of the benchmark index by investing in a portfolio that is primarily made up of securities that represent the benchmark index. The objective is to generate a return which is as close as practicable to the total return of the index net of transaction costs, gross of fees and other costs. Cash management, efficient portfolio management techniques including securities lending, transaction costs from rebalancing and currency hedging can have an impact on tracking error as well as the return differential between a Fund and its benchmark index. Importantly, these impacts can be either positive or negative depending on the underlying circumstances. Each Fund’s TER is accrued on a daily basis throughout the financial period, which can impact the measurement of a tracking error in a positive or negative manner depending on the performance in the market and the TER rate applied. The extent and magnitude of this effect on performance measurement is subject to the timing of the market performance relative to the performance period and can be greater than the headline TER in a positive market and lower than the TER in a negative market. In addition to the above, the Funds may also have a tracking error due to withholding tax suffered by the Funds on any income received from its investments. The level and quantum of tracking error arising due to withholding taxes depends on various factors such as any reclaims filed on behalf of the Funds with various tax authorities, any benefits obtained by the Funds under a tax treaty or any securities lending activities carried out by the Funds. The following table compares the realised performance of the Funds against the performance of the relevant benchmark index during the financial period ended 31 August 2018 and the anticipated tracking error of the Funds (disclosed in the prospectus on an ex-ante basis) against the actual realised tracking error of the Funds as at 31 August 2018. The realised tracking error is annualised and calculated using data from the preceding 36 month observation period.

Investment Manager’s report (continued) MARKET REVIEW Equities Global equities This market review summary covers iShares MSCI World UCITS ETF. Following an uncertain start to the review period amid concerns over rising global trade tensions, world stock markets subsequently rallied on optimism that the US led global economic recovery will continue to underpin company earnings. Nevertheless, some concerns lingered over the outlook for US interest rates and uncertainty over US trade policy. Global stock markets began the six month review period on a soft footing, with investors unsettled by rising trade tension between the US and China. Weakness across much of the IT sector also weighed on broader markets as a data security scandal hit Facebook and a fatal accident raised questions over the safety of self-driving cars. Nevertheless, global equities gradually recovered from their late March lows during the course of April and early May 2018 as generally solid corporate earnings and resilient global economic data offset concerns over the gradual withdrawal of economic stimulus by leading central banks. However, simmering trade related concerns were never far from investors’ minds, with President Donald Trump’s announcement of tariffs on $50 billion in imports from China, threatening a further $200 billion should China impose similar measures on US exports, prompting a selloff in June 2018. However, global equities soon regained their poise in July 2018, rallying in response to a further round of reassuring corporate earnings and economic news. Robust US economic growth data raised particular optimism that the world’s largest economy remained well placed to absorb the effects of ongoing interest rate rises. However, volatility in some emerging markets during the final weeks of the review period reflected investors’ view that some economies were struggling to withstand the wider effects of higher US borrowing costs, with Turkey facing a slide in the Turkish Lira amid governance concerns and fears over the impact of US sanctions. Nevertheless, global equities ended the review period on a broadly firmer note, cheered by the encouraging tone of corporate results and optimism that the US administration’s agreement with Mexico over trade could herald similar agreements with the China and the EU, thereby reducing the risk of a damaging global trade war.

US equities This market review summary covers iShares MSCI North America UCITS ETF and iShares S&P 500 UCITS ETF. US equities produced solid returns, outperforming wider global equities over the review period. Robust domestic economic data and a succession of positive updates from a range of leading US listed companies more than offset concerns over simmering trade related tension, the projected path of US interest rates and the effect of the stronger US Dollar on exporters’ international earnings. US markets followed their global peers lower in March and early April 2018. Notwithstanding some degree of support from the relatively large US energy sector as oil prices pushed higher, concern that President Donald Trump’s strategy over import tariffs would risk a global trade war weighed on sentiment. Financial, mining and IT stocks suffered disproportionately, with the latter further impacted by the prospect of a political crackdown on how companies such as Facebook manage user data. Meanwhile a fatal accident raised new questions over the safety of selfdriving cars, with stocks such as graphics processor specialist Nvidia suffering brief setbacks. Nevertheless, given the strength of the US economic backdrop, with investors largely pricing in the March 2018 0.25% interest rate increase from the Federal Reserve (“Fed”) and at least two further rises in 2018, the US market gradually pushed higher over the remainder of the second quarter. Despite President Donald Trump’s tough rhetoric over trade policy, investors focused on signs of further strength in the domestic economy, with average earnings growing at a robust rate, reflecting the firm employment market as the unemployment rate fell to 3.80%, the lowest since 2000. Although global stocks suffered sporadic setbacks as trade matters returned to centre stage, renewed strength in the energy sector lent support to the US market in late June 2018 as President Donald Trump stepped up pressure on Iran with new sanctions that boosted oil prices amid supply concerns. US markets ended the review period on a very solid note, significantly outpacing the gains by global equities during July and August 2018. This outperformance was largely based on yet more encouraging news from the US economy, with investors unperturbed by the June 2018 0.25% interest rate rise. Provisional data showed that the economy had grown at an annualised pace of 4.10% during the second quarter of 2018, its best performance since late 2014, while more reassuring signs on trade matters also served to bolster investor sentiment.

iSHARES PLC

Investment Manager’s report (continued) MARKET REVIEW (continued) Equities (continued) US equities (continued) A meeting between European Commission (“EC”) President Juncker and President Donald Trump produced an agreement that helped to defuse trade tension between the US and the EU, while a deal over revised trade terms between the US and Mexico raised hopes over further progress in negotiations with China to avert a further escalation in trade related risks. Nevertheless, uncertainty over Canada’s future trading terms with the US acted as a headwind to the Canadian market, leading to underperformance relative to US equities, following President Donald Trump’s extended efforts to revise the North American Free Trade Agreement (“NAFTA”). Uncertainty heightened during the final days of the review period, particularly as a deadline imposed by the US on Canada to join the revised US-Mexico agreement expired.

UK equities This market review summary covers iShares Core FTSE 100 UCITS ETF, iShares FTSE 250 UCITS ETF and iShares UK Dividend UCITS ETF. UK equities generated good returns over the six month review period, marginally outperforming their global counterparts. With the UK economy showing signs of improvement following its disappointing performance around the turn of the calendar year, some investors took the view that, despite some ongoing uncertainties related to Brexit, their previous allocation to UK equities may have reflected an overly pessimistic view of the UK’s economic prospects. Mid-sized companies, as represented by the FTSE 250 index, outperformed their larger, blue chip peers, as represented by the FTSE 100 index, largely reflecting the formers’ greater focus on the improving domestic economy. Shares paying attractive levels of dividends also outperformed blue chip equities, reflecting the formers’ higher weighting among several outperforming consumer discretionary stocks and lower holdings among some underperforming financials. The UK market followed its international counterparts lower during the opening weeks of the review period amid rising global trade tension. The UK currency’s rally against the US Dollar further weighed on export orientated UK listed large caps given the dilutive effect on their international earnings. However, Sterling’s recovery proved short lived as expectations over a near term rise in UK interest rates faded amid signs that economic activity remained relatively subdued, influenced to some extend by unusually harsh early Spring weather. With Fed officials’ hawkish language contrasting with efforts from their Bank of England (“BoE”) counterparts to downplay the prospect of higher UK interest rates in the near term, Sterling’s weakness extended throughout the second quarter of 2018, thereby helping to underpin the valuation of UK exporters. Boosted by higher oil & gas prices, the UK energy sector also performed well relative to the broader market, helping the main UK market indices to push to new year to date highs in May, despite only muted signs of recovery in the domestic economy. Having traded largely sideways in June 2018, UK equities inched higher in July 2018, supported by ongoing weakness in the UK currency, against both the US Dollar and the Euro. Nevertheless, investor conviction remained relatively weak against the backdrop of mixed economic and political news flow. Provisional data suggested that the UK economy had grown by 0.40% during the second quarter of 2018, compared to 0.20% three months earlier. Meanwhile, despite ongoing strength in the employment market, the widely forecast upturn in wage growth failed to materialise as average earnings growth eased to a six month low in June 2018. Against this uncertain international backdrop as trade related concerns persisted, domestic political factors did nothing to reassure as Prime Minister Theresa May’s Chequers Brexit plan prompted cabinet resignations and attracted only limited support in her own party and from EU leaders. Nevertheless, despite comments from BoE Governor Mark Carney warning over the ‘uncomfortably high’ risk of a no deal Brexit as negotiations seemingly made limited progress, the BoE’s Monetary Policy Committee raised interest rates by 0.25% in August 2018, taking UK benchmark borrowing costs to 0.75%. The decision was influenced by sentiment based surveys suggesting that economic activity was recovering, while inflation remained well above target. Despite the firmer tone of economic indicators, UK equities nevertheless tracked their global counterparts lower during the final weeks of the review period amid some concerns that rising trade friction could threaten global economic growth, augmenting concerns over the UK’s future trading relationship with the EU.

Investment Manager’s report (continued) MARKET REVIEW (continued) Equities (continued) European equities This market review summary covers iShares AEX UCITS ETF, iShares Euro Dividend UCITS ETF, iShares EURO STOXX Mid UCITS ETF, iShares EURO STOXX Small UCITS ETF, iShares Euro Total Market Growth Large UCITS ETF, iShares Euro Total Market Value Large UCITS ETF, iShares FTSEurofirst 80 UCITS ETF, iShares FTSEurofirst 100 UCITS ETF, iShares MSCI Europe ex-UK GBP Hedged UCITS ETF (Dist) and iShares MSCI Europe ex-UK UCITS ETF. European equities produced muted returns over the review period, lagging behind those of wider global equities. With the region’s economic recovery continuing, albeit at a softer pace, the European Central Bank’s (“ECB”) decision to signal the end of its massive quantitative easing (“QE”) economic support programme and rising political uncertainty, particularly related to Italy, acted as a drag on sentiment. European bourses broadly tracked the swings in wider global equity markets early in the review period, initially drifting lower as concerns mounted over the risk of trade tensions escalating into a full scale global trade war. Nevertheless, with Eurozone economic data remaining positive on the whole, investors became increasingly vigilant over possible signs from the ECB over the timescale for ending its €2.40 trillion QE programme. However, Eurozone equities staged a solid recovery during April and early May 2018, with investors drawing encouragement from the US administration’s decision to temporarily exclude the EU from import tariffs on steel and aluminium. Meanwhile, economic data painted a more mixed picture; compared to 0.70% during the final quarter of 2017, the Eurozone economy grew by a more modest 0.40% during the first quarter of 2018, although some more recent sentiment indicators suggested that activity could soon pick up again. Against this backdrop, the ECB signalled that QE would finally end in December 2018, with interest rates unlikely to rise before mid-2019. Despite the ongoing economic recovery, political factors intensified during the second half of the review period. Following March’s inconclusive Italian elections, an anti EU coalition government finally emerged following weeks of negotiations between the Five Star Movement and the Lega party. Although the coalition’s first choice of a controversial anti EU finance minister candidate was rejected by President Mattarella, a revised nomination enabled the formation of a government, led by academic Giuseppe Conte. However, the new government’s commitment to reduce taxes and increase spending alarmed investors, with the country seemingly set on a collision course with EU deficit rules. Although Italian equities rallied alongside their broader Eurozone peers in July as some government officials reassured investors that they would refrain from making a push to leave the Eurozone, and a meeting between President Donald Trump and European Commission President Juncker over working to reduce tariffs on some industrial goods, Eurozone equities ended the review period on a soft note. The human tragedy of the catastrophic failure of the Morandi road bridge in Genoa raised concerns over the state of some infrastructure across Italy, with the heightened prospect of additional spending raising fears over Italy’s fiscal outlook, and doubts over Italy’s future in the Euro heaping pressure on the banking sector. Meanwhile, news that Eurozone economic growth had slowed to 0.40%, after a revision from the provisional 0.30% figure, during the second quarter of 2018 and President Donald Trump’s renewed threat to impose a 25% tariff on EU vehicle imports saw European markets end the review period on a soft note. Mid-caps outperformed their larger peers, as mid-sized companies’ greater focus on the growing domestic economy offered some protection against the risk that global trade tension could escalate. However, small caps lagged the broader market, partly reflecting investors’ muted appetite for risk. The Dutch-focused AEX index outperformed its wider European peers, helped by the greater representation of the outperforming energy sector and lower representation of some underperforming financials in the Dutch market. The FTSEurofirst80 index marginally underperformed compared to its more broad based FTSEurofirst100 peer, reflecting the latter’s greater exposure to some outperforming energy companies and reduced weighting in some underperforming consumer discretionary companies. In style terms, European growth outperformed value, while dividend orientated stocks underperformed the broader market, largely due to greater relative exposure to the financial sector as political concerns weighed on some banking sector valuations, particularly in Italy.

Japanese equities This market review summary covers iShares MSCI Japan UCITS ETF USD (Dist) and iShares MSCI Japan USD Hedged UCITS ETF (Acc). Japanese equities produced disappointing returns, underperforming their global peers by a substantial margin over the review period. Despite the US Dollar’s recovery against the Japanese Yen (from approximately 106 to 111) over the six months boosting Japanese companies’ earnings from the US market, concerns that Japan’s economic backdrop was softening and fears that trade tension could degenerate into a global trade war weighed on the market.

Investment Manager’s report (continued) MARKET REVIEW (continued) Equities (continued) Japanese equities (continued) Japanese equities lost ground early in the review period, weighed by a combination of trade tension related softness in global stock markets, modest gains in the Japanese Yen relative to the US Dollar and mixed domestic economic indicators. Political factors also played a part amid claims that an education provider with links to Prime Minister ("PM") Shinzo Abe’s wife secured advantageous terms in a real estate transaction. However, Japanese stocks soon recovered from their lows of late March 2018, rallying alongside their global peers into early May 2018 as some concerns over the threat of a global trade war eased. Although data showed that the economy had suffered a surprise -0.20% contraction during the first quarter of 2018 as private investment and household consumption faltered and uncertainty lingered over PM Abe’s future, investors drew encouragement from a recovery in the US Dollar which eased pressure on export orientated Japanese companies. Solid earnings updates from Japanese corporates, generally positive economy indicators and easing geopolitical tensions following the US-North Korea summit lent further support to the market rally. However, having largely matched the returns from global equities until early June 2018, Japanese equities underperformed their global counterparts over the remainder of the review period. This poor relative performance reflected an escalation of US-China tensions and the softer tone of some domestic economic data. Despite ongoing strength in the US Dollar underpinning sentiment towards Japanese exporters, some manufacturing surveys suggested that export orders were softening while, even as the labour market remained tight, consumer spending data disappointed. Although data would subsequently show that the Japanese economy had returned to growth during the second quarter of 2018, with GDP growth of 0.60%, helped by solid domestic demand, concerns deepened over Japan’s exposure to the ongoing trade skirmish between China and the US as the latter imposed tariffs on $50 billion of Chinese imports and threatened further measures. Nevertheless, domestic factors helped to underpin market sentiment during the final weeks of the review period. Following the release of lower than expected inflation figures, the Bank of Japan stated its intention to maintain its ultra-accommodative interest rate policy for “an extended period”. Meanwhile, having survived accusations of cronyism, PM Abe won the public backing of political colleagues ahead of a September 2018 leadership vote that was widely seen as an opportunity for the leader to reaffirm his authority and extend his mandate for market friendly reform.

Emerging markets equities This market review summary covers iShares Asia Pacific Dividend UCITS ETF, iShares China Large Cap UCITS ETF, iShares Core MSCI EM IMI UCITS ETF, iShares MSCI AC Far East ex-Japan UCITS ETF, iShares MSCI Brazil UCITS ETF USD (Dist), iShares MSCI Eastern Europe Capped UCITS ETF, iShares MSCI EM UCITS ETF USD (Dist), iShares MSCI Korea UCITS ETF USD (Dist) and iShares MSCI Taiwan UCITS ETF. Having delivered robust gains for much of 2017, emerging market equities produced very poor returns during the Company’s review period, underperforming global stock markets by a substantial margin. The marked performance reversal reflected emerging markets’ exposure to the growing risk of a global trade war, concerns over the effects of the ratcheting up of US interest rates and a broad decline in investors’ appetite for higher risk markets. With investor sentiment already fickle given the prospect of US interest rates rising more rapidly and to a greater extent than investors had been expecting, emerging markets eased alongside their global counterparts during the opening weeks of the review period. Following President Donald Trump’s imposition of tariffs on imports of Chinese steel and aluminium, China’s statement over planned retaliation weighed on emerging market stocks into early April 2018. However, although some more conciliatory signals from the US administration over trade and reduced tension on the Korean peninsula helped to defuse some tensions, enabling global equities to rally for much of the second quarter of 2018, emerging markets lagged well behind broader world stock markets. Despite firmer energy prices, the resource rich Brazilian market fared particularly poorly, reflecting concerns that the government’s economic reform measures were facing serious challenges amid industrial unrest and political protests. Meanwhile, the US Dollar’s ongoing recovery amid expectations of a series of further interest rate increases heaped further pressure on emerging markets, with Argentina hiking interest rates to defend its plunging currency and pressing the International Monetary Fund ("IMF") to release the agreed $50 billion bailout funds. With political unrest growing in Brazil, news that left wing Mexican presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador had built a substantial opinion poll lead ahead of the June 2018 election did little to boost investors’ confidence already shaken by President Donald Trump’s effort to reform the terms of the NAFTA trade agreement. In Europe, a dramatic slide in the Turkish Lira, which piled pressure on banks exposed to foreign currency loans, also prompted a series of dramatic interest rate hikes, with fears for the economy growing in the wake of US sanctions following a spat between President Donald Trump and Turkey’s President Erdogan.

Investment Manager’s report (continued) MARKET REVIEW (continued) Equities (continued) Emerging markets equities (continued) Rising global trade tensions weighed heavily on sentiment towards emerging markets during the latter weeks of the Company’s review period. Although headline economic data held up relatively well across much of the Far East, notably in China, where year on year economic growth eased only modestly to 6.70% during the April to June 2018 period compared to 6.80% during the three previous quarters, rising risk aversion impacted on emerging markets generally. Following President Erdogan’s June election win, President Donald Trump's threat to impose tighter sanctions on Turkey contributed to renewed weakness in the Turkish Lira, triggering further interest rate increases. During the final weeks of the review period softer Chinese economic data, notably signs that the domestic economic backdrop was cooling, coupled with fears that a series of retaliatory measures threatened by the US and China over trade, weighed further on emerging markets. Despite positive investor reaction to news of a revised trade agreement between Mexico and the US, and reassuring comments from President Elect Obrador that helped the Mexican market to outperform, fears of contagion from the currency crises that had hit Turkey and Argentina could spread to countries such as Brazil and Indonesia, emerging markets ended the review period sharply lower. In regional terms, Far East markets fared relatively well; although economic and trade concerns weighed heavily on markets such as China and Korea, particularly late in the review period, Taiwan and India performed particularly well. The latter reflected the perception that the country’s relatively insular economy and growing consumer class provided protection from global trade risks while the IT heavy Taiwanese market (the IT sector accounts for approximately 59.8% of the MSCI Taiwan index, compared to 18.8% of the MSCI World index) reflected the resilient performance of index heavyweight Taiwan Semiconductor. Meanwhile, the solid performance of Samsung Electronics underpinned the Korean market. However, Latin American equities underperformed, particularly Brazil, amid concerns over growing resistance to political reform. Despite posting losses, Eastern European emerging markets outperformed wider global emerging markets. Although risk aversion hit Polish and Hungarian equities, firmer oil & gas prices underpinned the resource rich Russian market.

Property markets This market review summary covers iShares European Property Yield UCITS ETF. European property assets generated very robust returns during the Company’s review period, outperforming global equities by a substantial margin, helped by the region’s broadly supportive economic environment and commercial property’s lower direct exposure to the effects of trade tariffs relative to equity markets. European property also outperformed UK property but underperformed relative to US real estate assets. European commercial real estate markets began the review period on a positive note, buoyed by the region’s supportive economic backdrop. Ongoing improvements in trading activity across the Eurozone and the strong employment market continued to drive demand for office, retail, industrial and warehouse space. Within the office sector, robust take-up of developments continued to outstrip new supply, particularly in Dublin and across Germany, influenced to some extent by financial companies aiming to retain a strong post Brexit presence in the Eurozone market given the limited apparent progress in negotiations. Although global equities faced sporadic bouts of volatility amid fears that trade skirmishes could trigger a damaging global trade war, real estate markets continued to benefit from the supportive economic environment, and the sector’s low direct exposure to the effects of trade tariffs. With the Eurozone jobless rate continuing its steady decline, falling to 8.20% in May 2018, the lowest rate since November 2008, and retail sales growing by 1.50% on a year on year basis in June 2018, healthy levels of consumer activity continued to underpin demand for retail space. Meanwhile, despite some declines in business confidence, office demand remained solid and new supply tight, leading to low levels of vacancies in highly rated, well connected office developments across a range of European cities. Despite rising levels of political uncertainty and the ECB’s decision to wind up its QE programme at the end of 2018, confidence that Eurozone borrowing costs would remain at low levels for an extended period continued to underpin demand for European commercial real estate during the final weeks of the Company’s review period.

Investment Manager’s report (continued) MARKET REVIEW (continued) Fixed income US government bonds This market review summary covers iShares $ Treasury Bond 1-3yr UCITS ETF. Short dated US Treasury bond prices ended the Company’s review period modestly higher. Despite robust rates of US economic growth and rising inflation, concerns over mounting global trade related tension and deteriorating sentiment towards some higher risk assets, such as emerging market equities and lower rated corporate debt, underlined the appeal of ultralow risk assets, such as US Treasury bonds. The US government bond market began the review period on a largely flat note. Despite signs that US economic activity was picking up, volatility in global stock markets amid rising trade tensions and a selloff in the global IT sector highlighted the appeal of safe haven assets. Following the Fed’s widely forecast decision to lift interest rates from 1.50% to 1.75% in March 2018, provisional data subsequently suggested that the US economy had grown by a faster than expected 2.90% on an annualised basis during the first quarter of 2018. Meanwhile, with inflation picking up steadily from its January 2018 low of 2.10%, Treasury bond prices came under some pressure in April 2018, particularly as more conciliatory signals briefly eased global trade tensions. Nevertheless, although first quarter economic growth would later be revised down to 2.20%, and rising oil prices would continue to push inflation higher, tougher subsequent rhetoric from President Donald Trump over imports from China and the EU heightened fears that progressively tougher trade terms between major nations could trigger a trade war, thereby dealing a heavy blow to the global economy. Against the backdrop of rising risk aversion, precipitated by events such as the growing crisis in some emerging economies and concerns over rising Eurozone political uncertainties, investors increasingly reallocated capital away from higher risk assets into highly rated government bonds, with US Treasuries among the major beneficiaries. Even as inflation hit 2.90%, the highest level since February 2012, in June and July 2018, and data showed that the US economy had grown by an upwardly revised 4.20% during the second quarter of 2018, US Treasury bond markets pushed higher over the final weeks of the review period. Notwithstanding the US administration’s agreement with Mexico over revised trade terms, the market’s late gains highlighted the appeal of safe haven assets amid fears that President Donald Trump's strategy over trade terms with China, and to a lesser extent the EU, could derail the US and global economic recoveries.

European government bonds This market background summary covers iShares € Govt Bond 1-3yr UCITS ETF and iShares € Inflation Linked Govt Bond UCITS ETF. Short dated European government bonds produced disappointing returns over the Company’s review period, underperforming relative to their US peers. With the Eurozone economic recovery continuing, albeit at a more subdued pace over recent quarters, an upturn in inflation across the single currency zone and confirmation that the ECB will finally end its bond buying QE programme at the end of 2018 weighed to some extent on European government debt. Poor returns from Italian bonds as investors fretted over the new government’s plans for lower tax and higher spending also weighed on broader European government bond markets. Inflation protected Euro government bonds lost ground over the review period, reflecting their relatively short duration relative to global inflation protected debt and some investors’ view that the region’s more uncertain economic outlook could act as a drag on inflation over the medium term. European government bonds markets traded in a relatively tight range early in the review period. The supportive effect of sluggish inflation data was largely offset by signs that the ECB was preparing the ground for the eventual end of QE, keeping interest rates on hold but removing the mention of any willingness to expand QE at its meeting statement. However, Euro government bond yields rose across the board as political concerns returned, principally in Italy and to a lesser extent in Spain. Italian yields rose sharply as the Lega and Five Star parties reached a deal to form a coalition government. Although President Mattarella rejected the coalition’s original choice of finance minister, potentially creating a political vacuum ahead of new elections, a compromise candidate paved the way for a new Giuseppe Conte led government with tax and spending plans that seemingly set a collision course with Eurozone budget deficit rules. Meanwhile, Spanish bond yields briefly rose as PM Mariano Rajoy lost a confidence vote after his Popular Party was implicated in a corruption scandal, with Socialist Party leader Pedro Sánchez taking over as PM.

Investment Manager’s report (continued) MARKET REVIEW (continued) Fixed income (continued) European government bonds (continued) Although Italian government bonds performed poorly over the remainder of the review period, particularly as the Genoa bridge catastrophe highlighted the pressure for significantly higher infrastructure spending, broader European government bond markets rallied from their May 2018 lows. Even as higher energy prices drove inflation sharply higher – from just 1.30% in April 2018 to a five and a half year high of 2.10% in July 2018 – Euro government bond markets benefitted from ‘safe haven’ buying as rising international trade tensions fuelled fears of a global trade war. Notwithstanding a brief return of investors’ appetite for risk as a meeting between President Juncker and President Donald Trump seemingly defused tensions, signs that the latter was preparing to implement new tariffs on $200 billion of imports from China helped to underpin ultralow risk assets, such as Euro government bonds.

Corporate bonds This market review summary covers iShares $ Corp Bond Interest Rate Hedged UCITS ETF, iShares $ Corp Bond UCITS ETF, iShares £ Corp Bond 0-5yr UCITS ETF, iShares Core £ Corp Bond UCITS ETF, iShares € Corp Bond Large Cap UCITS ETF, iShares Global High Yield Corp Bond UCITS ETF, iShares Global Corp Bond UCITS ETF and iShares € High Yield Corp Bond UCITS ETF. Global corporate bond markets produced mixed returns over the six month review period, largely underperforming relative to their government bond counterparts. Despite generally supportive corporate earnings updates, concerns over the growing danger of a global trade war weighed heavily on investors’ appetite for risk, with yield spreads widening as investors showed a broad preference for lower risk assets, such as government bonds. Sterling credit outperformed its Euro and US Dollar peers, largely reflecting the firm relative returns from the underlying gilt market as some investors sought out lower risk assets against the backdrop of ongoing Brexit related uncertainties. Nevertheless, high yield bond markets recovered from a poor start to the review period, ending on a relatively firm note, underpinned by the solid relative performance of some energy and telecom sector issuers. Credit markets traded in a relatively tight range early in the review period, albeit marginally underperforming underlying government bond markets as growing expectations that the ECB and the BoE would soon follow the Fed’s lead by adopting less accommodative monetary policy weighed slightly on risk based assets. However, credit markets endured a bout of underperformance late in the second quarter, with turbulence in some European markets amid Italy related uncertainties acting as a headwind to credit generally. Nevertheless, credit markets broadly followed the lead of rising underlying government bond markets in June and July 2018, albeit that credit marginally underperformed ultra-low risk government bonds as investors sought out safe havens amid rising trade tensions. However, given the broadly reassuring tone of corporate earnings announcements, optimism that solid company balance sheets would enable creditors to comfortably service their debt burdens, thereby helping to keep default risks relatively low, served to limit credit markets’ underperformance. During the final weeks of the review period, ongoing concerns related to the Italian government’s plans continued to act as a headwind to peripheral Euro credit markets, while the ECB’s decision to finally end QE also contributed to Euro credit’s disappointing returns over the period. Meanwhile, high yield bond markets ended the period on a relatively firm note, particularly lower rated developed market credit, which benefited to some extent from investors switching out of emerging market debt into developed market bonds offering attractive levels of yield.

iSHARES PLC

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS For the financial period ended 31 August 2018 1. COMPANY DETAILS iShares public limited company is organised as an open-ended Investment Company with variable capital. The Company was incorporated in Ireland on 21 January 2000 with limited liability and segregated liability between its Funds and is organised under the laws of Ireland as a Public Limited Company (“PLC”) pursuant to the Companies Act 2014 (as amended) and the UCITS Regulations and is regulated by the CBI. The registered office of the Company is J.P. Morgan House, International Financial Services Centre, Dublin 1, Ireland. 2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES Statement of compliance The financial statements of the Company are prepared in accordance with FRS 104 and Irish statute pursuant to the Companies Act 2014 (as amended) and the provisions of the UCITS Regulations. Accounting standards generally accepted in Ireland in preparing financial statements which present a true and fair view are promulgated and issued by the Financial Reporting Council ("FRC"). Due to the special nature of the Company's business, the directors have adapted the arrangement and headings and sub-headings of the financial statements otherwise required by Schedule 3 to the Companies Act 2014 (as amended). All amounts are rounded to the nearest thousand, unless otherwise stated. The principal accounting policies and estimation techniques are consistent with those applied to the previous annual financial statements. 3. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND RISKS Introduction and overview The Company's investment activities expose it to the various types of risk which are associated with the financial instruments and markets in which it invests. The following information is not intended to be a comprehensive summary of all risks and investors should refer to the prospectus for a more detailed discussion of the risks inherent in investing in the Company. Risk management framework The principal risks and uncertainties of the Company and related risk management policies are consistent with those disclosed in the Company’s audited financial statements as at and for the financial year ended 28 February 2018. The Directors of the Company consider the following risks to be the principal risks and uncertainties facing the Company for the financial period: a) Market risk Market risk arises mainly from uncertainty about future values of financial instruments influenced by other price, currency and interest rate movements. It represents the potential loss the Funds may suffer through holding market positions in the face of market movements. i)

Market risk arising from foreign currency risk

Exposure to foreign currency risk Foreign currency risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in foreign exchange rates. The Funds may invest in securities, which as far as possible and practicable, consist of the component securities of the benchmark index of each Fund, and which may be denominated in currencies other than its reporting currency.

iSHARES PLC

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued) For the financial period ended 31 August 2018 3. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT AND RISKS (continued) a) Market risk (continued) i)

Market risk arising from foreign currency risk (continued)

Exposure to foreign currency risk (continued) The Funds with the exception of the currency hedged Funds, in line with their benchmarks, are unhedged and are therefore exposed to foreign currency risk. Consequently, each Fund is exposed to the risk of currency fluctuations between the base currency of the benchmark index and the base currency of the constituent securities of the benchmark index. In addition, certain Funds may have share classes which have different valuation currencies from the base currency of the Fund. Consequently, the investments of a share class may be acquired in currencies which are not the valuation currency of the share class. Currency hedged share classes use a currency hedging approach whereby the hedge is proportionately adjusted for net subscriptions and redemptions in the relevant currency hedged share class. An adjustment is made to the hedge to account for the price movements of the underlying securities held for the relevant currency hedged share class, however, the hedge will only be reset or adjusted on a monthly basis and as and when a pre-determined tolerance is triggered intramonth, and not whenever there is market movement in the underlying securities. In the event that, the over-hedged or under-hedged position on any single underlying portfolio currency exposure of a currency hedged share class exceeds the pre-determined tolerance as at the close of a Business Day (for example, due to market movement), the hedge in respect of that underlying currency will be reset on the next Business Day (on which the relevant currency markets are open). Over-hedged positions shall not exceed 105% of the NAV of the relevant currency hedged share class and under-hedged positions shall not fall short of 95% of the portion of the NAV of the relevant currency hedged share class that is to be hedged against currency risk. As a result of this currency hedging approach, the currency hedged share classes are considered to be immaterially exposed to foreign currency risk. Currency hedged share classes, where offered in a Fund, aim to reduce the impact of exchange rate fluctuations between the underlying portfolio currency exposures of the Fund and the valuation currency of the currency hedged share class on returns of the relevant benchmark index to investors in that share class, through entering into foreign exchange contracts for currency hedging. The realised or unrealised gains or losses relating to these forward currency contracts are allocated to the relevant share class. The details of such contracts are disclosed as hedged forwards in the Fund’s schedule of investments. The Funds may also invest in forward currency contracts and thus gain further exposure to foreign currency risk. Management of foreign currency risk To minimise this risk, the currency hedged Funds invest in forward currency contracts that as far as possible track the hedging methodology of the benchmark index. The benchmark indices of the currency hedged Funds are designed to represent a close approximation of the return that can be achieved by hedging the currency exposures of the index in the one month forward market at the end of each month. Exchange rate exposures are managed where appropriate and in compliance with the prospectus utilising forward currency contracts. The details of the contracts in place at the financial period-end date are disclosed in the schedules of investments. The Investment Manager will monitor the currency exposure and gain or loss arising from hedge positions of each currency hedged share class against the pre-determined tolerances daily and will determine when a currency hedge should be reset and the gain or loss arising from the currency forwards reinvested or settled, while taking into consideration the frequency and associated transaction and reinvestment costs of resetting the currency forwards. ii)

Market risk arising from other price risk

Exposure to other price risk Other price risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market prices (other than those arising from interest rate risk or currency risk), whether those changes are caused by factors specific to the individual financial instrument or its issuer, or factors affecting similar financial instruments traded in the market.

Market risk (continued)

ii) Market risk arising from other price risk (continued) Exposure to other price risk (continued) The Funds are exposed to market risk arising by virtue of their investments in equities, ETF's, rights, bonds, forward currency contracts and futures contracts. The movements in the prices of these investments result in movements in the performance of the Funds. The investment concentrations within the portfolio are disclosed in the schedules of investments by investment type. Management of other price risk The Investment Manager manages the Funds’ market risk on a daily basis in accordance with the Funds’ investment objective. The investment objective of the Funds is to provide investors with a total return, taking into account the capital and income returns, which reflect the total returns of the respective benchmark. The Fund’s performance is correlated to its benchmark. The correlation of the Fund’s performance against the benchmark is a metric monitored by key management personnel. iii)

Market risk arising from interest rate risk

Exposure to interest rate risk Interest rate risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market interest rates. The Funds are exposed to interest rate risk through their cash and cash equivalent holdings including margin cash held with brokers. The Funds are also exposed to interest rate risk through their investments in bonds, where the value of these securities may fluctuate as a result of a change in interest rates. The Funds also have indirect exposure to interest rate risk through their investments into futures contracts, whereby the value of the underlying asset may fluctuate as a result of a change in interest rates. Management of interest rate risk iShares $ Corp Bond Interest Rate Hedged UCITS ETF known as the "Interest Rate Hedged Fund" sells US government futures contracts in order to hedge the underlying US government bond yield risk. The Interest Rate Hedged Fund, as far as possible and practicable, tracks the hedging methodology of the benchmark index. The benchmark index of the Interest Rate Hedged Fund is designed to represent a close approximation of the return that can be achieved by hedging on a monthly basis the interest rate exposure of the Fund with the futures contracts weighted appropriately according to the duration of the fixed income securities held in the index. The benchmark index holds long positions in the constituents of the underlying index and aims to achieve zero duration by taking short positions in a basket of US Treasury bond futures contracts. The return on the basket of futures is subtracted from the total return of the underlying index. At the beginning of each month, the constituents of the underlying index are partitioned into five duration buckets. Each bucket is hedged separately with the relevant US Treasury bond futures contract, which itself is weighted appropriately to match the duration of the corporate bonds in that bucket. Movements in the prices of these investments are derived from movements in market interest rates and issuer creditworthiness. Issuer creditworthiness and credit spreads are monitored by the Investment Manager regularly. The securities in which the Funds invest will generally have a minimum rating of "investment grade" (Investment grade securities are those issued by an entity with a minimum investment grade credit rating from at least one globally recognised credit rating agency; Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s or Fitch) from a ratings agency as set out in the investment policy of the Funds.

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued) For the financial period ended 31 August 2018 3. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT AND RISKS (continued) b) Counterparty credit risk Exposure to counterparty credit risk Counterparty credit risk is the risk that one party to a financial instrument will cause a financial loss for the other party by failing to discharge an obligation. The Funds are exposed to counterparty credit risk from the parties with which they trade and will bear the risk of settlement default. Management of counterparty credit risk Counterparty credit risk is monitored and managed by BlackRock’s Risk and Quantitative Analysis ("RQA") Counterparty & Concentration Risk Team. The team is headed by BlackRock’s Chief Counterparty Credit Officer who reports to the Global Head of RQA. Credit authority resides with the Chief Counterparty Credit Officer and selected team members to whom specific credit authority has been delegated. As such, counterparty approvals may be granted by the Chief Counterparty Credit Officer, or by identified RQA Credit Risk Officers who have been formally delegated authority by the Chief Counterparty Credit Officer. The BlackRock RQA Counterparty & Concentration Risk Team completes a formal review of each new counterparty, monitors and reviews all approved counterparties on an ongoing basis and maintains an active oversight of counterparty exposures and the collateral management process. There were no past due or impaired balances in relation to transactions with counterparties as at 31 August 2018 or 28 February 2018.

i)

Financial derivative instruments

The Funds’ holdings in exchange traded futures contracts and Over the Counter ("OTC") financial derivative instruments exposes the Funds to counterparty credit risk. Management of counterparty credit risk related to financial derivative instruments Exchange traded financial derivative instruments The exposure to futures contracts is limited by trading the contracts through a clearing house. The Funds’ exposure to counterparty credit risk on contracts in which it currently has a gain position is reduced by such gains received in cash from the counterparty under the daily mark-to-market mechanism on exchange traded futures contracts (variation margin). The Funds’ exposure to credit risk on contracts in which they currently have a loss position is equal to the amount of margin posted to the counterparty which has not been transferred to the exchange under the daily mark-to-market mechanism. Margin is paid or received on futures contracts to cover any exposure by the counterparty or the Funds to each other. “Margin cash account” on the condensed balance sheet consists of margin receivable from or payable to the Fund's clearing brokers and various counterparties. OTC financial derivative instruments Counterparty credit risk in relation to OTC financial derivative instruments arises from the failure of the counterparty to perform according to the terms of the contract. The Funds exposure to counterparty credit risk is limited to the contracts in which it currently has a financial asset position reduced by any collateral received from the counterparty, or to counterparties who have received collateral from the Funds. All OTC derivative transactions are entered into by the Funds under an International Swaps and Derivatives Associations, Inc. Master Agreement (“ISDA Master Agreement”) or similar agreement. An ISDA Master Agreement is a bilateral agreement between the Funds and a counterparty that governs OTC derivative transactions entered into by the parties.

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued) For the financial period ended 31 August 2018 3. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT AND RISKS (continued) b) Counterparty credit risk (continued) i)

Financial derivative instruments (continued)

Management of counterparty credit risk related to financial derivative instruments (continued) OTC financial derivative instruments (continued) The parties’ exposures under the ISDA Master Agreement are netted and collateralised together, therefore any collateral disclosures provided are in respect of all OTC derivative transactions entered into by the Funds under the ISDA Master Agreement. All non-cash collateral received/posted by the Funds under the ISDA Master Agreement is transferred bilaterally under a title transfer arrangement. The carrying value of financial assets together with cash held with counterparties best represents the Fund’s gross maximum exposure to counterparty credit risk at the reporting date, before including the effect of ISDA Master Agreements and close-out netting, which reduces the overall counterparty credit risk exposure. Cash held as security by the counterparty to derivative contracts is subject to the credit risk of the counterparty. The Funds’ maximum exposure to counterparty credit risk from holding forward currency contracts will be equal to the notional amount of the currency and any net unrealised gains as disclosed in the schedule of investments. Management of counterparty credit risk related to OTC financial derivative instruments Forward currency contracts do not require variation margins and thus the counterparty credit risk is monitored through the BlackRock RQA Counterparty & Concentration Risk Team who monitor the creditworthiness of the counterparty. The counterparties for forward currency contracts are disclosed in the relevant schedules of investments. ii)

Depositary

The Funds’ Depositary is State Street Custodial Services (Ireland) Limited (the “Depositary”). The majority of the investments are held by the Depositary at financial period end. Investments are segregated from the assets of the Depositary, with ownership rights remaining with the Funds. Bankruptcy or insolvency of the Depositary may cause the Funds’ rights with respect to its investments held by the Depositary to be delayed or limited. The maximum exposure to this risk is the amount of long investments disclosed in the schedules of investments. The Depositary has appointed State Street Bank and Trust Company (the “Sub-Custodian”) as its global Sub-Custodian. Substantially all of the cash of the Company is held with the Sub-Custodian. The Funds’ cash balances are held by the Sub-Custodian in its account together with its own cash balances and with those cash balances that are held on behalf of other clients. The Funds’ cash balances are separately identifiable within the records of the Sub-Custodian. In respect of the cash held by the Sub-Custodian or other depositaries it appoints, the Funds will be exposed to counterparty credit risk of the SubCustodian or those depositaries. In the event of the insolvency or bankruptcy of the Sub-Custodian or other depositaries, the Funds will be treated as a general creditor of the Sub-Custodian or the depositaries. Management of counterparty credit risk related to the Depositary To mitigate the Funds’ exposure to the Depositary, the Investment Manager employs specific procedures to ensure that the Depositary is a reputable institution and that the counterparty credit risk is acceptable to the Funds. The Funds only transacts with Depositary’s that are regulated entities subject to prudential supervision, or with "high credit ratings" assigned by international credit rating agencies. The long term credit rating of the parent company of the Depositary and Sub-Custodian, State Street Corporation, as at 31 August 2018, is A (28 February 2018: A) (Standard & Poor’s rating). In order to further mitigate the Fund's counterparty credit risk exposure to the Sub-Custodian or depositary banks, the Funds may enter into additional arrangements such as the placing of residual cash in a money market fund for example Institutional Cash Series Plc ("ICS") shown as a cash equivalent on the condensed balance sheet. ICS is a BlackRock umbrella fund and an open-ended Investment Company with variable capital incorporated in Ireland and having segregated liability between its funds. ICS is authorised as a UCITS.

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued) For the financial period ended 31 August 2018 3. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT AND RISKS (continued) b) Counterparty credit risk (continued) iii) Counterparties All transactions in listed securities are settled/paid for upon delivery using approved brokers. The risk of default is considered minimal, as delivery of securities sold is only made once the broker has received payment. Payment is made on a purchase once the securities have been received by the broker. The trade will fail if either party fails to meet its obligation. Counterparty credit risk arising on transactions with brokers relates to transactions awaiting settlement. Risk relating to unsettled transactions is considered small due to the short settlement period involved and the high credit quality of the brokers used. Management of counterparty credit risk related to counterparties RQA monitors the credit rating and financial position of the brokers used to further mitigate this risk. iv) Securities lending The Funds that engage in securities lending activities expose such Funds to counterparty credit risk. The maximum exposure to each Fund is equal to the value of the securities loaned. Securities lending transactions entered into by the Funds are subject to a written legal agreement between the Funds and the Securities Lending Agent, BlackRock Advisors (UK) Limited, a related party to the Company, and separately between the Securities Lending Agent and the approved borrowing counterparty. Collateral received in exchange for securities lent is transferred under a title transfer arrangement and is delivered to and held in an account with a tri-party collateral manager in the name of the Depositary on behalf of the Funds. Collateral received is segregated from the assets belonging to the Funds’ Depositary or the Lending Agent. Management of counterparty credit risk related to securities lending To mitigate this risk, the Funds which undertake securities lending transactions receive either cash or securities as collateral equal to a certain percentage in excess of the fair value of the securities loaned. The Investment Manager monitors the fair value of the securities loaned and additional collateral is obtained, if necessary. As at the condensed balance sheet date, all non-cash collateral received consists of securities admitted to or dealt on a regulated market. The Funds also benefit from a borrower default indemnity provided by BlackRock, Inc. The indemnity allows for full replacement of securities lent. BlackRock, Inc. bears the cost of indemnification against borrower default. c) Issuer credit risk relating to debt securities Issuer credit risk is the default risk of one of the issuers of any securities held by the Funds. Bonds or other debt securities involve credit risk to the issuer which may be evidenced by the issuer’s credit rating. Securities which are subordinated and/or have a lower credit rating are generally considered to have a higher credit risk and a greater possibility of default than more highly rated. A number of the Funds invest into sovereign and corporate debt. This exposes the Funds to the risk that the issuer of the bonds may default on interest or principal payments. Management of issuer credit risk related to debt securities To manage this risk, the Investment Manager invests in a wide range of debt securities, subject to the investment objectives of each Fund and monitors the credit ratings of the investments as disclosed in the schedules of investments. The ratings of the debt securities are continually monitored by the BlackRock Portfolio Management Group (“PMG”).

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued) For the financial period ended 31 August 2018 3. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT AND RISKS (continued) d) Liquidity risk Exposure to liquidity risk Liquidity risk is the risk that the Funds will encounter difficulties in meeting their obligations associated with financial liabilities. Liquidity risk to the Funds arises from the redemption requests of investors and the liquidity of the underlying investments the Funds are invested in. The Funds’ shareholders may redeem their shares on the close of any daily dealing deadline for cash equal to a proportionate share of the Funds’ NAV. The Funds are therefore potentially exposed to the liquidity risk of meeting the shareholders’ redemptions and may need to sell assets at prevailing market prices to meet liquidity demands. It is also exposed to the liquidity risk of daily margin calls on derivatives. Management of liquidity risk Liquidity risk is minimised by holding sufficient liquid investments which can be readily realised to meet liquidity demands. To manage this risk, if redemption requests on any dealing day represent 10% or more of the shares in issue in respect of any Fund, the Manager may, in its discretion, refuse to redeem any shares representing in excess of 10% of the NAV of the Fund (at any time including after the cut-off time on the dealing day). Any request for redemptions on such dealing day shall be reduced rateably and the redemption requests shall be treated as if they were received on each subsequent dealing day until all shares to which the original request related have been redeemed. In any event settlement for redemptions will normally be made within fourteen days of the dealing day. The Fund's liquidity risk is managed on a daily basis by the Investment Manager in accordance with established policies and procedures in place. The portfolio managers review daily forward looking cash reports which project cash obligations. These reports allow them to manage their cash obligations. The Funds benefit from the ETF creation and redemption process which, through the use of Authorised Participants, benefit from economies of scale and access to market participants with a visible market presence and a driver of large trading volumes. Investors and the Funds benefit from the ETF creation and redemption process, which allows an investor, through Authorised Participants, to create and redeem a large number of shares, therefore giving them access to significant market depth. This helps to mitigate liquidity risk and investor concentration risks for the Funds and mitigates investor concentration risks given that the Authorised Participants either receive the assets directly from the Fund on redemption, or for the minority of Funds a fee is charged to cover trading costs. e)

Valuation of financial instruments

The Funds classify financial instruments measured at fair value using a fair value hierarchy. The fair value hierarchy has the following categories: Level 1 - Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets A financial instrument is regarded as quoted in an active market if quoted prices are readily and regularly available and those prices represent actual and regularly occurring market transactions on an arm’s length basis. The Fund does not adjust the quoted price for these instruments. Level 2 - Valuation techniques using observable inputs This category includes instruments valued using: quoted prices in active markets for similar instruments; quoted prices for similar instruments in markets that are considered less than active; or other valuation techniques where all significant inputs are directly or indirectly observable from market data. Valuation techniques used for non-standardised financial instruments such as OTC derivatives, include the use of comparable recent arm’s length transactions, reference to other instruments that are substantially the same, discounted cash flow analysis, option pricing models and other valuation techniques commonly used by market participants making the maximum use of market inputs and relying as little as possible on entity determined inputs.

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued) For the financial period ended 31 August 2018 3. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT AND RISKS (continued) e) Valuation of financial instruments (continued) Level 3 - Valuation techniques using significant unobservable inputs This category includes all instruments where the valuation techniques used include inputs not based on market data and these inputs could have a significant impact on the instrument’s valuation. This category also includes instruments that are valued based on quoted prices for similar instruments where significant entity determined adjustments or assumptions are required to reflect differences between the instruments and instruments for which there is no active market. The level in the fair value hierarchy within which the fair value measurement is categorised in its entirety is determined on the basis of the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. For this purpose, the significance of an input is assessed against the fair value measurement in its entirety. If a fair value measurement uses observable inputs that require significant adjustment based on unobservable inputs, that measurement is a level 3 measurement. Assessing the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement in its entirety requires judgement, considering factors specific to the asset or liability. The determination of what constitutes ‘observable’ inputs requires significant judgement by the Investment Manager. The Investment Manager considers observable inputs to be that market data that is readily available, regularly distributed or updated, reliable and verifiable, not proprietary, and provided by independent sources that are actively involved in the relevant market. There were no level 3 securities held on the Funds with a fair value greater than 1% of the relevant Fund’s NAV at the financial period ended 31 August 2018 or 28 February 2018. The tables below and overleaf are an analysis of the Funds’ financial assets and financial liabilities measured at fair value at 31 August 2018. 31 August 2018

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued) For the financial period ended 31 August 2018 4. OPERATING EXPENSES The Company employs an “all in one” fee structure for its Funds, with each Fund paying all of its fees, operating costs and expenses (and its due proportion of any costs and expenses allocated to it) as a single flat fee (the TER). Where a Fund has multiple Share Classes, any fees, operating costs and expenses which are attributable to a particular Share Class (rather than the entire Fund) will be deducted from the assets notionally allocated by the Fund to that Share Class. The TER is calculated in accordance with the Committee of European Securities Regulators (“CESR”) guidelines on the methodology for calculation of the ongoing charges figure in the Key Investor Information Document ("KIID") or the product page of the website at www.ishares.com. The Manager is responsible for discharging all operational expenses, including but not limited to fees and expenses of the Directors, Investment Manager, Depositary, Administrator, Transfer Agent and Registrar from the amounts received by the Manager from the TER. Such operational expenses include regulatory and audit fees but exclude transaction costs and extraordinary legal costs. In the event a Fund’s costs and expenses in connection with the operation of the Fund exceed the stated TER, the Manager will discharge any excess amount out of its own assets. Management fees (inclusive of investment management fees): The Manager is entitled to an annual fee at rates not exceeding those set out on the following table. These rates are the maximum fee rates as at 31 August 2018:

Irish tax Under current law and practice, the Company qualifies as an investment undertaking as defined in Section 739B of the Taxes Consolidation Act, 1997, as amended. On that basis it is not chargeable to Irish tax on its income or gains. However, Irish tax may arise on the occurrence of a 'chargeable event'. A chargeable event includes any distribution payments to shareholders or any encashment, redemption, cancellation or transfer of shares and the holding of shares at the end of each eight year period beginning with the acquisition of such shares. No Irish tax will arise on the Company in respect of chargeable events in respect of: a)

A shareholder who is neither Irish resident nor ordinarily resident in Ireland for tax purposes, at the time of the chargeable event, provided appropriate valid declarations in accordance with the provisions of the Taxes Consolidation Act, 1997, as amended, are held by the Company; or the Company has been authorised by the Irish Revenue to make gross payments in the absence of appropriate declarations; and

b) c)

Certain exempted Irish tax resident shareholders who have provided the Company with the necessary signed annual declarations; and Any transaction (which might otherwise be a chargeable event) in relation to shares held in a recognised clearing system as designated by order of the Irish Revenue Commissioners (such as CREST) will not constitute a chargeable event. It is the current intention of the Directors that all the shares in the Company will be held in CREST or another recognised clearing system.

Overseas tax Dividends, interest and capital gains (if any) received on investments made by the Company may be subject to withholding taxes imposed by the country from which the investment income/gains are received and such taxes may not be recoverable by the Company or its shareholders. For financial reporting purposes, and in accordance with FRS 102, the Company must recognise a provision for deferred tax payable arising from material timing differences between the taxation of unrealised gains in the financial statements and actual realisable taxable profits. This change in Brazilian CGT has resulted in the recognition of a provision for deferred tax payable arising from material timing difference between the taxation of unrealised gains in the financial statements and actual realisable taxable profits as detailed on the iShares MSCI Brazil UCITS ETF USD (Dist) financial statements.
