Diverse platform. Comprehensive solutions.
For many years, the asset management industry focused on beating the market, or outperforming an index. Today, many investors realize that the most important investment decisions they make aren’t about which stocks to choose or whether to buy an active or index fund. Investing for the future is about constructing a portfolio that meets an objective.
As the investment landscape continues to evolve, a traditional 60% / 40% portfolio allocation of equity to bond exposures does not have the same expected return as it did in the past.
In today’s world, clients need portfolios that meet their specific objectives. In anticipation of this shift, BlackRock has developed the most diverse investment platform in the industry to provide choice for clients: strategies across investment styles — from replicating an index to generating alpha — across asset classes, factor styles and regions.
We have built better technology that helps portfolio managers and financial advisors see and manage risk, construct portfolios and operate more efficiently. We use this technology at BlackRock and we offer this technology to clients and partners, so they can do the same.
The true differentiation of BlackRock’s investment and technology platform is that it helps us understand the whole picture: what clients have, what clients want and how to get there.
