As of February 26, 2015, iShares U.S. Fixed Income Balanced Risk ETF (INC) will begin participating in the BATS Competitive Liquidity (“CLP”) Program on the BATS listing market.

The BATS CLP Program is a rewards-based program designed to encourage quoting activity for BATS-listed securities. The payment of a CLP Fee is intended to generate more quotes and trading than might otherwise exist absent this payment, and the security leaving the BATS CLP Program may adversely impact a purchaser’s subsequent sale of the security. A link to the BATS CLP Program can be found here.
