Commentary by BlackRock Investment Institute

We gather leading BlackRock portfolio managers from around the globe twice a year to discuss what’s in store for markets. Our bi-annual Investment Outlooks capture these (intense) debates.

We run workshops and calls for our 1,600 investment professionals for deep dives into market, economic and policy trends. The range of subjects is reflected in our Global Insights series.

Our BlackRock Sovereign Risk Index (BSRI) measures the credit worthiness of 50 countries. Quarterly BSRI updates cover changes in country scores, rankings and overarching trends.

We dig into our global database of exchange traded funds to produce analyses of money flows, underlying holdings and country weightings in areas such as fixed income or dividend funds.
