BlackRock has long been recognized for its disciplined investment process and rigorous bottom-up approach to risk management. Since its inception in 1988, BlackRock has focused on the need to assess security- and portfolio-level risks, to make investment decisions in rapidly changing markets, and to execute transactions efficiently, while ensuring strict adherence to risk management and compliance guidelines. These fundamental business requirements demand complex financial analytics and robust information processing capabilities. As a result, BlackRock developed an integrated suite of proprietary investment management tools.

In 2000, BlackRock began offering these risk management and trade processing tools to external clients under the BlackRock Solutions brand. Since that time, BlackRock's strategy has been to deliver its significant investment in technology infrastructure and analytics to a select group of large institutional investors at a high level of sophistication, quality and service.
