1 BLACKROCK GLOBAL ETP LANDSCAPE INDUSTRY HIGHLIGHTS JULY The opinions expressed are as of July 31, and may change as subsequent conditions vary. ONLY FOR ACCREDITED INVESTORS IN CANADA, QUALIFIED INVESTORS IN SWITZERLAND,

2 Summary BlackRock ETP Research A cross-regional team analyzing global markets to deliver insights on the intersection of investment trends and ETP flows For inquiries, please GLOBAL ETP FLOWS ACCELERATE AS GREECE AND CHINA CONCERNS EASE July global ETP flows of $36.3bn were the best in five months, with investors initially favoring safer fund categories before shifting attention to non-u.s. developed markets equity later in the month U.S. large cap equity and U.S. Treasuries gathered $9.2bn and $3.7bn, respectively, concentrated in the first two weeks given uncertainty surrounding the referendum in Greece and stock market correction in China As tensions abated, a greater share of flows moved to non-u.s. developed markets equity, with pan-european exposures reaching $6.6bn, Japan $6.5bn and EAFE $2.2bn Currency-hedged equity flows remained steady, with $3.5bn driven by Europe exposures as the U.S. dollar again showed signs of strengthening Demand for investment grade and high yield corporate bonds rebounded, with each bringing in over $1bn Global ETP Overview 3 United States 9 Europe 13 Asia Pacific 17 Canada 2 Latin America 23 Endnotes 25 [ 2 ]

3 Global ETP Highlights Global ETP flows accelerated to $36.3bn in July. It was the second best month of the year, with strong contributions across U.S. equities, non-u.s. developed markets equities and fixed income. KEY INVESTMENT THEMES / ETP FLOW TRENDS Highlighting the trend of steadily increasing ETP adoption, it was the third straight July with flows over $3bn despite lower trading volumes typical during the summer. The month began with uncertainty over the referendum in Greece and stock market correction in China. This led investors to favor safer equity and fixed income exposures. Europe equity Japan equity Broad dev eqty China equity U.S. large cap and U.S. Treasuries brought in $9.2bn and $3.7bn, respectively, though both slowed considerably toward the end of July as market tensions eased and U.S. earnings season got off to a weaker-than-expected start. GLOBAL ETP FLOWS BY ASSET CLASS & EXPOSURE 1 YTD flows: $181.6bn Focus shifted back to non-u.s. developed markets equities and corporate bonds. Japan, pan-european and EAFE equity exposures all posted strong results. Pan-European flows were particularly robust, rising for the second month to $6.6bn. As Greece fears eased, attention shifted to what has so far been a good earnings season relative to the U.S. Currency-hedged and smart beta equity, the two fastest growing ETP segments, remained steady with flows of $3.5bn and $1.6bn, respectively. Smart beta (see below) is still on track to reach the record flows from last year.

Assets have expanded rapidly, growing at an annualized rate of nearly 4% since the beginning of 212. This is twice the rate for the broader ETP industry. A few notable trends: 1) Despite a slowdown for dividend strategies so far this year, flows of $21.7bn for other categories such as minimum volatility and factor funds have accelerated 2) Europe is growing faster than any other region, with assets of $2bn up 5% per year since 212 and year-to-date flows approaching $3bn 3) Fixed income smart beta funds are gaining traction, and while assets and flows are still small, a dozen funds have been launched including the first in Europe (US$bn) Assets (US$bn) Dividend Minimum volatility Single factor Multi factor 43.2 Equal weight YTD [ 3 ]

4 Global ETP Highlights (cont d) The currency-hedged flows were driven by Europe exposures, which accumulated $2.1bn amid renewed U.S. dollar appreciation. The dollar reached a three-month high versus the euro during the month. Broad EM equities slowed for the third straight month with redemptions totaling ($2.7bn). However, there has not been a catalyst behind the selling and year-to-date flows are unchanged from March levels. The category has stayed in a tight range all year with the recent outflows offsetting asset gathering in the second quarter. China equity flows were volatile during July. A-shares funds listed in China accumulated $8.bn in the first week despite the sharp market drop. These flows later reversed, resulting in outflows of ($2.bn). Conversely, both A-shares and H-shares funds listed in the U.S. began to sell off later in the month. They shed ($.7bn) after posting steady inflows of $2.4bn during the first half of the year. The CSI 3 fell 14.8% in July, while the Hang Seng index in Hong Kong was down only 6.2%. 2 Fixed income flows rebounded to $9.6bn following the first outflows of the year in June. As asset gathering for U.S. Treasuries subsided mid-month, corporate bond flows began to accelerate again. Investment grade corporate bond funds brought in $1.6bn and high yield corporate bonds added $1.bn. Commodities were mixed with outflows totaling ($.9bn). Both oil and gold prices dropped, but crude oil ETPs saw inflows of $2.1bn while gold redemptions were ($2.3bn).
