The goal of BlackRock’s index strategies is to achieve or exceed a given benchmark’s return through Total Performance Management: the deliberate balancing of risk, return and cost. We pride ourselves on our detailed understanding of benchmark construction and the nuances of local markets.
Why should you entrust your indexing business to BlackRock?
- Longevity: We pioneered the first index fund in 1971 and have continued to innovate as markets and client needs evolve.
- Scale and scope: Our diverse index platform offers our clients a variety of investment options. Extensive crossing opportunities can reduce transaction costs for investors.
- Dedicated research and technology: A research team dedicated solely to index equity works to ensure timely and accurate index data and develops value-added trading strategies for large index events.
- Asset management focus: We aren’t distracted by a custodial business. We focus on what we do best—investment management.
In addition, rigorous risk management has been part of BlackRock's culture since its inception. Our independent Risk and Quantitative Analysis group combines expert professionals with proprietary technology resources to support the equity platform, enhance investment processes and provide risk management to our clients.
Our index funds provide access to all of the major equity markets, including niche markets such as frontier markets, commodities and real estate. While seeking to achieve the benchmark return or better, we believe risks must be understood and adequately compensated, and transaction costs must be considered in all investment decisions.
