Fund Description

The BlackRock Global Allocation Fund Institutional Shares (MALOX) is an actively managed world-allocation fund designed to provide a high total return. The fund is unconstrained in its approach and can shift among asset classes (stocks, bonds, cash and derivatives) and location (U.S. and international) at will. The types of securities and markets invested in are based on changing market and economic trends. MALOX has no allocation mandates and can be 100% in any asset class at will.

Expenses before sales are low. While designed as a core offering, the major shift of the fund’s asset classes makes it more of a satellite holding for investors. The fund is internally managed by BlackRock.
