1 Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its Managed Assets in private investments (as defined in the Prospectus). "Managed Assets" means the total assets of the Fund (including any assets attributable to money borrowed for investment purposes) minus the sum of the Fund’s accrued liabilities (other than money borrowed for investment purposes). The private equity sleeve of the Fund will be invested in Portfolio Companies or in Portfolio Funds (each as defined in the Prospectus) that invest in such Portfolio Companies. Due to the nature of the private markets for the types of private equity investments in which the Fund will invest and factors such as the competitive nature of the business of identifying and structuring investments of the types contemplated by the Fund and the limited availability of attractive investment opportunities during certain market cycles, BlackRock Capital Investment Advisors, LLC, the Fund's sub-adviser, expects that it may take up to three years from commencement of operations of the Fund for the Fund to be primarily invested in private equity investments. The portion of Fund assets allocated to the private equity sleeve and the income-focused sleeve of the Fund, respectively (as described in the Prospectus), will vary over time as the Fund deploys capital to investments in Portfolio Companies and Portfolio Funds, and, during periods of increased cash inflows, the Fund may hold a relatively greater percentage of its Managed Assets in its income-focused sleeve. The actual portfolio composition may significantly differ from the figures shown above.
Diversification does not assure a profit and may not protect against loss of principal.

2 Definitions: Buyout – purchase of an existing company or portion of a company. Venture capital - seed money and funding for start-up and early-stage companies.

3 The fund may also invest in: Special situations, private infrastructure and real assets, in addition to buyout, growth and VC.

Quarterly tender offers of up to 5% of the Fund's NAV (subject to Board approval). 

The Fund currently does not intend to repurchase shares during the first two years of operations. An investor purchasing Shares at any time prior to the second anniversary of commencement of operations (3/1/21) should not expect to liquidate its investment (or any position thereof) at any time during that period.

It is expected that the Fund will offer to repurchase Shares (through written tender offers) on a quarterly basis of up to 5% of the Fund's net asset value, subject to the discretion of the Board. However, there can be no assurance that the Fund will conduct tender offers on a quarterly basis or at all. Further, if the Fund conducts a tender offer, there is no guarantee that shareholders will be able to sell all of the Shares that they desire to sell in any particular tender offer. Therefore, Shares of the Fund are appropriate only for those investors who do not require a liquid investment and who are aware of the risks involved in investing in the Fund.

The Fund may use leverage to seek to achieve its investment objective or for liquidity (i.e., to finance the repurchase of shares and/or bridge the financing of private equity investments pending the acceptance of funds from investor subscriptions). The Fund’s use of leverage may increase or decrease from time to time in its discretion and the Fund may, in the future, determine not to use leverage.

Expenses stated as of the fund’s most recent prospectus for Institutional Shares: Total annual expenses, 3.33%; Total annual expenses after fee waiver and/or expense reimbursement, 2.53%. Reflects a 0.75% contractual waiver on the management fee in place until December 31, 2024. Unless an extension of the contractual management fee waiver is agreed to by the Fund and BlackRock Advisors, LLC, the Fund's investment adviser (the "Adviser"), the Fund’s management fee will increase to 1.75% after December 31, 2024.

The Advisor has agreed to waive and/or reimburse certain operating and other expenses of the Fund in order to limit certain expenses to 0.50% of the Fund’s average quarterly value of the net assets of each share class. Subject to the terms of the Expense Agreement, expenses borne by the Advisor in the prior two fiscal years of the Fund are subject to recoupment by the Advisor. Such recoupment arrangement will terminate on 12/31/27. The Fund will carry forward any waivers and/or reimbursements of fees and expenses in excess of the Expense Cap and repay the Advisor such amount provided the Fund is able to do so without exceeding the lesser of (1) the expense limit in effect at the time of the waiver or reimbursement, as applicable, or (2) the expense limit in effect at the time of recoupment after giving effect to the repayment. The Expense Agreement continues from year to year if approved by a majority of the Fund’s Independent Trustees. The current term of the Expense Agreement expires on 6/30/25.
