Hypothetical Growth of $10,000

 3, 4 More Information
Shows growth of hypothetical $10,000 investment in BlackRock Global Allocation V.I. Fund over the selected time period

The chart illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made in the fund ten years ago or on commencement of operations (whichever is later). Figures include reinvestment of capital gains and dividends, and reflect the effects of the annual annuity charge and the underlying fund's expenses. Figures do not reflect the effects of any applicable redemption fees, maintenance charges, or surrender fees, which would lower these figures. This chart is not intended to imply any future performance of the fund.

The performance data featured represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and the principal value of a variable annuity will fluctuate; therefore, you may have a gain or loss when money is withdrawn or received. Fund performance fluctuates and currently may be significantly higher or lower than stated.

Fund Overview


The investment seeks high total investment return.


The fund invests in a portfolio of equity, debt and money market securities. Generally, its portfolio will include both equity and debt securities. In selecting equity investments, the fund mainly seeks securities that the adviser believes are undervalued. The fund may buy debt securities of varying maturities, debt securities paying a fixed or fluctuating rate of interest, and debt securities of any kind. It may invest up to 35% of its total assets in "junk bonds," corporate loans and distressed securities. The fund may also invest in Real Estate Investment Trusts and securities related to real assets.


Foreign securities are subject to interest-rate, currency-exchange-rate, economic, and political risks, all of which may be magnified in emerging markets. Stock markets are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, economic or other developments. These risks may be magnified in foreign markets. In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Additional risk information for this product may be found in the prospectus or other product materials, if available.
