Index & Smart Beta


Index and smart beta play a key role in the portfolios of many institutional investors, helping them to get the most from scarce capital and limited risk budgets. BlackRock’s aim is to support clients by providing market exposure in the most efficient manner.

Innovation lies at the core of our approach: We constantly seek to adapt to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing and complex market environment. The result is a full spectrum of global index strategies that clients can use to gain efficient, cost-effective exposure to specific market segments or entire markets.

Index and smart beta may help your portfolio

May complement the existing portfolio and implement tactical views using a toolkit of factors.
Diversify and reduce risk
