BlackRock Liquid Federal Trust Fund (BLFT)

BlackRock’s commitment to living our purpose is evident in all we do.

I’m Eion D’Anjou and I am proud to be a portfolio manager for the BlackRock Liquid Federal Trust Fund, or BLFT. BLFT is a U.S. registered government money market fund that offers a constant net asset value, access to daily liquidity and pursuit of preservation of capital and yield – characteristics that have attracted more than $4 trillion1 dollars to the U.S. government money market fund category.

In our view, BLFT isn’t your typical government money market fund. We designed BLFT to be a vehicle for positive social impact as well. In pursuit of this lofty goal, we have partnered with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, the nation’s largest organization exclusively representing the black college community. By contributing a portion of the revenue BlackRock receives from the net management fees of BLFT to the TMCF, we believe we can help accelerate efforts to remove financial barriers, amplify the ambitions of students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and create a more equitable world.

To support a more diverse trading ecosystem, this fund will seek to place a majority of the aggregate dollar volume of purchase orders towards broker dealers that are minority, female or veteran owned.

Cash is a scale business, and with every new dollar invested in BLFT, we believe we are doing more to create a better future.

Together we lift.
