Making informed investment decisions in today's complex, volatile markets requires significant resources and focus. Managing multiple separate accounts with highly customized mandates makes it challenging to generate consistent excess returns across all portfolios. The need to ensure compliance with client guidelines, enter and confirm trades with counterparties, and quantify risk on a real-time basis makes it increasingly expensive to deliver a first class investment product. As a result, many investment managers today spend more time monitoring and measuring risks than they do managing portfolios and servicing clients.
BlackRock Solutions' enterprise investment system solves many of the problems faced by large investment managers. Our enterprise investment system, Aladdin, combines sophisticated risk analytics with front, middle and back office functionality to support internal and external straight-through processing. Sophisticated tools automate pre- and post-trade compliance monitoring, while highly flexible reports measure risk exposures across portfolios relative to their respective benchmarks. A real-time Dashboard provides information transparency throughout the organization by allowing all departments to access consistent information across portfolios. In short, BlackRock Solutions allows investment managers to focus on what they do best - interpreting results, making investment decisions, and servicing clients.
