In contrast, an open-end investment company that issues Investment Company Units, listed and traded on the Exchange under NYSE Arca Equities Rule 5.2(j)(3), seeks to provide investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance of a specific foreign or domestic stock index, fixed income securities index or combination thereof. 6 The Trust is registered under the 1940 Act. On August 22, 2013, the Trust filed with the Commission post-effective amendments on Form N–1A under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a) and under the 1940 Act relating to the iShares Interest Rate Hedged Corporate Bond ETF (the ‘‘Corporate Bond Registration Statement’’) and the iShares Interest Rate Hedged High Yield Bond ETF (the ‘‘High Yield Registration Statement’’ and together with the Corporate Bond Registration Statement, the ‘‘Registration Statements’’) (File Nos. 333–179904 and 811–22649). In addition, the Commission has issued an order granting certain exemptive relief to the Trust under the 1940 Act. See Investment Company Act Release No. 29571 (File No. 812–13601) (‘‘Exemptive Order’’). PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 49281 Funds (the ‘‘Adviser’’). BFA is an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of BlackRock, Inc. BlackRock Investments, LLC is the principal underwriter and distributor of the Funds’ Shares. State Street Bank and Trust Company serves as administrator, custodian and transfer agent for the Funds. The Funds’ Shares are currently listed and traded on the Exchange under NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.600. The Exchange proposes to revise the representations made in the Prior Release regarding the Funds’ investments to accommodate use of interest rate futures contracts 7 and interest rate swaps by the Funds, as described below, consistent with the use of such financial instruments permitted for other funds of the Trust previously approved by the Commission for Exchange listing and trading.8 iShares Interest Rate Hedged Corporate Bond ETF As described in the Prior Release, according to the Corporate Bond Registration Statement, the Fund seeks to mitigate the interest rate risk of a portfolio composed of U.S. dollardenominated, investment grade corporate bonds. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of its net assets in U.S. dollar-denominated investment grade bonds, in one or more investment companies (exchange-traded and nonexchange-traded funds) that principally invest in investment-grade bonds, in U.S. Treasury securities (or cash equivalents), and by taking short positions in U.S. Treasury futures and other interest rate futures contracts. The Exchange proposes to amend this statement to provide that, going forward, the Fund will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of its net assets in U.S. dollardenominated investment grade bonds, in one or more investment companies (exchange-traded and non-exchangetraded funds) that principally invest in investment-grade bonds, in U.S. Treasury securities (or cash 7 As described in the Prior Release, both Funds may use U.S. Treasury futures contracts to mitigate interest rate risk. In this proposed rule change, the Exchange proposes, among other things, to accommodate use by the Funds of other interest rate futures to mitigate interest rate risk. 8 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 74058 (January 15, 2015), 80 FR 3294 (January 22, 2015) (SR–NYSEArca–2014–114), (order approving listing and trading on the Exchange of shares of the iShares Interest Rate Hedged 0–5 Year High Yield Bond ETF, iShares Interest Rate Hedged 10+ Year Credit Bond ETF, and the iShares Interest Rate Hedged Emerging Markets Bond ETF under NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.600).
