Welcome to BlackRock Middle East

BlackRock is trusted to manage more money than any other investment firm*

Ever since the company was founded in 1988, BlackRock has always acted in the interests of its clients. We offer our clients a complete range of investment solutions across all asset classes and regions. This is combined with the outstanding market knowledge of over 1900 investment experts in 30 countries. Our leading risk management services also constantly manage risk for our investors.
Unlike the major banks, we are an asset management firm that acts exclusively in the interests of our clients as a fiduciary. To us, fiduciary means that we operate using our investors' money, rather than our own money, and invest it for the benefit of our clients in order to avoid conflicts of interest, remain transparent and help our clients to achieve their financial goals. This trust has made BlackRock the world's largest independent asset management firm, currently managing USD 5.1 trillion.*

Our mission is to combine the global investment expertise of BlackRock for investors in the Middle East. BlackRock is committed to asset management in the Middle East, and it aims to achieve success in partnership with clients across the region.

At a time when it is more important than ever for qualified investors and advisers to focus on a small number of expert business partners, BlackRock is a first port of call. That's because today's investors need a partner that plays a leading role around the world. Only these firms can manage the growing complexity and high level of volatility in the investment markets, as well as the increasingly stringent regulatory requirements, and realise their investors' strategies and goals.
BlackRock has a wide range of investment strategies across all key asset classes. As such, it is one of the few independent asset management firms that gives equal weight to active and passive investment solutions. Passive solutions are offered under then iShares brand. We believe that this comprehensive investment expertise, combined with our highly developed risk management services, makes us a preferred partner in the Middle East today.
