Why we are different
Our investment platform is designed to deliver better returns, greater transparency, convenience, efficient fees and better outcomes for our clients.
We are an asset manager whose objective is to create better financial futures for our clients and the people they serve. As a fiduciary to our clients, our firm is built to protect and grow the value of our clients’ assets.
We aspire to be an industry leader in how we incorporate sustainability into our investment processes and learning across the firm, our stewardship of our clients’ assets, our sustainable investment solutions offered to our clients, and the operations of our own business.
From BlackRock’s perspective, business-relevant sustainable issues contribute to a company’s long-term financial performance, and thus incorporating these considerations into the investment research, portfolio construction, and stewardship process can enhance long-term risk adjusted returns. By expanding access to data, insights and learning on material environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities in investment processes across our diverse platform, we become better overall investors. BlackRock incorporates material sustainable insights across our active investment platform, and also provides a range of dedicated sustainable strategies that spans exclusionary, ESG objective, thematic, and impact solutions.
