  • BlackRock Solutions (BRS) is a distinct business unit separate from BlackRock investment management. BRS brings an unmatched level of analytical tools to help institutional and retail clients alike understand their risks and develop investment strategies to meet their needs. Clients rely on BRS technology to help solve complex investment and risk management challenges.

    In addition to the Aladdin Business, BRS encompasses platforms to reach additional client segments with technology offerings like Aladdin Risk for Wealth Management, FutureAdvisor and iRetireall powered by the same proprietary analytical models, tools and reporting capabilities available through Aladdin.

  • Firms looking solely for risk and return analytics can utilize the Aladdin Risk offering, which provides many of the same analytic tools as the full Aladdin platform, without the order management, trading and operations capabilities. Additionally, clients can couple Aladdin Risk with BlackRock’s other risk consulting services such as LDI management or outsourced Chief Investment Office (CIO) services through BlackRock’s Client Solutions team.

  • Aladdin is a multi-asset class platform that supports risk analytics and the full investment process across equity, fixed income, FX, bank loans, derivatives and alternatives such as real estate, commodities, and private equity.

  • Among the many benefits, we are most excited about the opportunity it will provide to increase the pace of innovation for clients, increase geographic flexibility to meet local needs, and the additional scale and resiliency that comes as a result of moving our Aladdin infrastructure to the cloud.

  • BlackRock began to sell Aladdin in 1999. This technology is integral to who we are as a firm and is embedded in everything we do, thus differentiating us as an investment and risk manager.
