BlackRock, Inc Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators

Aladdin and eFront enable investors to manage portfolios across public and private asset classes on a single platform, providing a whole portfolio view. Aladdin has always been at the core of BlackRock. It combines sophisticated risk analytics, exposure and performance analyses with comprehensive portfolio management, trading, compliance and operational tools on a single unified platform. Aladdin was first built to manage BlackRock’s business, and the firm continues to be the largest user of Aladdin today. Through Aladdin, the firm offers to clients the same technology and intellectual capital that BlackRock uses to manage investments day-to-day. This “provider/user” dynamic brings a higher level of discipline to Aladdin than typical third-party technology offerings.
