Pension Funds & Endowments
Managing a pension plan or endowment means constantly striving to ensure full coverage and top performance for all beneficiaries of the fund. While actuaries or consultants can help assess the liabilities of the fund, the task of developing and implementing a broad investment program encompassing an ever-expanding and increasingly complex universe of investment options can be daunting. Whether outsourcing day-to-day investing to outside managers, employing a staff of investment professionals internally, or using a combination of these approaches, capturing an aggregated, consistent view of investment risk and compliance is both a difficult and critical challenge.
From risk solutions to full enterprise investment systems, BlackRock Solutions provides pension funds and endowments with the tools they need to efficiently manage their investments. Our Risk Solutions product provides a highly efficient means for obtaining consolidated risk and compliance reporting across both internally and externally managed assets. Timely access to complete and consistent information on each portfolio as well as total positions allows for enhanced ability to both manage managers more efficiently and modify programs when necessary. If a large portion of the plan is managed internally, our enterprise investment system, Aladdin, helps mitigate operational risk while making the best use of the fund's scarcest resource -- its people. Our system is based on a common platform across asset classes and investment functions, enabling the employment of a highly automated, highly efficient investment process.
