Investment Policy  The fund has a policy to invest only in the investment units of the iShare MSCI South Korea ETF (master fund). The master fund seek to track the investment results of MSCI Korea 25/50 (Benchmark), which primarily consists of stocks traded on the Stock Market Division of the Korea Exchange. The Underlying Index is a free floatadjusted market capitalization-weighted index with a capping methodology applied to issuer weights so that no single issuer exceeds 25% of the Underlying Index weight, and all issuers with a weight above 5% do not cumulatively exceed 50% of the Underlying Index weight. The Underlying Index will include large- and midcapitalization companies and may change over time. 

The Fund will at all times invest at least 80% of its assets in the securities of its Underlying Index and in depositary receipts representing securities in its Underlying Index. The Fund may invest the remainder of its assets in other
securities, including securities not in the Underlying Index, but which BFA believes will help the Fund track the Underlying Index, and in other investments, including futures contracts, options on futures contracts, other types of options and swaps related to its Underlying Index, as well as cash and cash equivalents, including shares of money market funds advised by BFA or its affiliates. The Fund seeks to track the investment results of the Underlying Index before fees and expenses of the Fund.
