White Papers / Research from BlackRock

  • The global power and energy transition download

    A deep structural shift is underway in how the world powers industry, homes and transportation. The implications for infrastructure investors are significant.

  • Sustainable investing: a “why not” moment download

    We have moved from a “why?” to a “why not?” moment in sustainable investing. Drawing on the insights of BlackRock’s investment professionals, we show why we believe it is feasible to create sustainable portfolios that do not compromise return goals and may even enhance risk-adjusted returns in the long run.

  • Building the right defense in equities download

    High-yielding “bond proxies” earned their stripes as equity safe havens as bond yields were slow to revert to pre-crisis levels. We look at what may constitute the new defense in equities as interest rates transition from “lower for longer” to higher at long last.

  • Our views for the second quarter download

    We see the overall environment as positive for risk assets, but expect more muted returns and higher volatility than in 2017. The U.S. tax overhaul and public spending plans have supercharged growth and earnings estimates, but also have added uncertainty to the economic outlook. We see two major risks to the global expansion and risk assets: trade wars and a spike in real yields.

  • Macro uncertainty on the rise download

    We see greater economic uncertainty ahead. Hefty U.S. fiscal stimulus and the risk of trade wars create a wider array of potential outcomes – both positive and negative – with implications for financial risk premia.
