Fund Holdings

Unlike some funds, which specialize in specific parts of the market, BlackRock Global Allocation does a bit of everything: short selling, junk bonds, convertible securities, and investments in emerging markets. According to its prospectus, "When choosing investments, fund management considers various factors, including opportunities for equity or debt investments to increase in value, expected dividends, and interest rates."
